Hello Kasalama :

Is it possible to wash off the engine while protecting the distribuutor and other electronics so we can start with a clean and dry engine ? . * Make sure that your radiator is full and that the Radiator/ Coolant overflow reservoir is at the proper level . * I would put a large piece of cardboard on the floor and along with a bright flash light or shop light use it to guide you where the leak s coming from .

If that is not helpful , I would perform a pressure check on the cooling system . The pressure check can be performed as a diagnostic tool . Put the truck in park and apply the parking brake . Attach the pressure diapham and Start the engine . You will have to manually pump it to a specified pressure as indicated on the gauge/ manometer .

The pressure diaphram usally attaches where the " radiator cap " is . Applying pressure can show leaking hoses, pipes and leaks in the radiator or fittings .

Be mindful that you can also have a leaking Intake manifold Gasket .

I hope that this info has been of help to you .

Water jacket side of block heats up and slowly drips most of the time the engine burns it off before you see it so take a flash light and look at the side of the block on both sides and see where it is leaking sometimes it is very little

    if it is pouring it could be your intake(blown head gasket or cracked head)..unless the jacket is just basically knocked out so you have to make sure which 1 it is...determine if it coming from the head or the water jacket..then we should be able to walk you through it or point you in the right direction...

My toyota 4runner is overheating but i have no water leak and yet my radiator is losing water


SOUND LIKE HEAD GASKET LEAK.CHECK ENGINE OIL FOR SIGNS ANTIFREEZE CONTAMINATION..OIL WILL LOOK LIKE MILK SHAKE.IF USING WATER IT EVAPORATES AT 212 DEGREES. ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE CAN CLIMB UP TO 220 DEGREES.IF OIL IN CRANK CASE LOOKS GOOD.ADD 50/50 WATER AND ANTIFREEZE. ANTIFREEZE WILL RAISE BOILING POINT TO KEEP COOLANT FROM EVAPORATING.SEE IF YOU LOSING WATER ITS BOILING AWAY LIKE WATER IN A TEA KETTLE.

After topping coolant levels up and driving for around 50 miles coolant is empty. If left standing still the coolant doesnt loose any. Have looked under car whilst engine and heating are on. Cannot see a...


It is surely a leak ,the coolant can go anywhere like apart from leaking,what is happening is when you are driving it leaks because there is more pressure in the radiator and it leaks somewhere ,why you don't see it,it is because the coolant is so hot and when the coolant when it leaks then hit the engine that is also hot,this make the leak coolant to evaporates very quickly that why you don't see it.Well what you have to do is top the coolant level,let someone start the engine you lift the bonnet standing in front of it,then tell the person inside the car to accelerate up 3000 rpm for near 10 minutes,then you watch carefully the radiator,hose and all the connection for the cooling system you will surely find the leaks where it comes from.Hope that clear your mind and solve it.

Losing coolant in Saturn 1998 SC2, water pump recently replaced, mechanics can't find the leak. Any suggestions?


if it is leaking from the lower hose on the radiator then chances are it is dripping onto the ground and they wont notice it. Tighten the clamp and see if that helps.

Overheating


Is this the diesel model ? or petrol power? Never lug your diesel engine it will overheat even a new engine. Check your coolant level when engine is cooled down it may need burped. Why the head gasket change? did the head get checked for cracks and surface flatness, could be still leaking combustion pressure gases into the coolant have a test for this
