Check soft plugs in the back of the engine block (also called freeze plugs) which are there for the purpose of expansion in cases of freezing solid in order to prevent the engine block from cracking under the pressure of freezing. its not a costly repair if you can get to the plug to replace it yourself ? if not get it to a shop pronto because soon the temps outdoors will increase causing overheating of the engine to occur without proper coolant capacity. Good Luck and i hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Car began overheating, so we added antifreeze and

Yes there are lower hoses--to radiator. Also heater hoses (smaller). Does the radiator fan(s) work when it's hot? Is the radiator fin structure in front full of bugs or other blockage? Check the coolant reservoir for leakage. Check the radiator pressure cap (when engine is cold) for bad gasket material (replace cap with new if part bad). Could have a leak from the radiator itself.

SOURCE: antifreeze leak from back of engine compartment leaking

Sorry, but you are going to have to crawl under the car with a flashlight to find out where the leak is. It could be a freeze plug on the rear cylinder bank, a bad head gasket, or a leaking heater hose. Look for white marks where the anti-freeze has been leaking. In any case, it is going to be a royal P.I.T.A. to fix. Don't forget that patience is a virtue.

SOURCE: 99 FORD TAURUS antifreeze is leaking from hose

How about just get a piece of auto hose at the parts tore and clamp it on there. A lot of rubber parts are not dealer items, just shelf items. There are a bunch of different hoses, some reinforced, oil and gas proof, high temp, rubber, nylon, etc, etc. Just get a good one of the right diameter. Hope this helps.

Engine coolant thermostat/water outlet assembly replace for 2000 lincoln ls


First with the engine cool, drain some of the antifreeze from the radiator. Second, take the hose clamp off of the upper radiator hose on the engine side and slide the hose off the water neck, some antifreeze might spill out. Third, remove the two bolts that hold the water neck and remove the waterneck, some antifreeze may spill out. Fourth, remove the old thermostat and o-ring , clean the sealing surface and install the new thermostat and o-ring the same way it came out. Last just reverse the procedure to get it back together, tightening the two waterneck bolts to 18 ft. Lbs. Fill with 50/50 antifreeze and water start it up and check for leaks. And you are done. Should only take about 20-30 minutes

Buy the part and pay a shop to change it. I spent 2 hours tring to get to itwith no luck. I took it to a shop and it took them 5 hours and 3 technicians to change it out. Good luck.

Need diagram where bottom radiater hose attaches to engine where it appears to be leaking


This is how I like to do it. Make sure the car is parked with the front end at an upward angle. Drain the coolant from the petcock at the bottom of the radiator. Remove the upper and lower hoses at the radiator. Remove the thermostat housing, and the heater core hoses at the fire wall. Flush out the radiator by pouring fresh water into the overflow, and the hole where the thermostat was. Flush the heater core as best you can by pouring fresh water into the heater core hose connections.
Let all the water drain out, then button everything back up and replace the thermostat with a new one. Refill the rad and engine by filling the coolant reservoir with a mix of 50% water and 50% antifreeze, or buy the premixed stuff from the auto parts store. (Buy 4 jugs of premix or 2 of straight antifreeze)
Run the engine until it reaches operating temperature and the upper rad hose gets hot. Rev the engine a little to help get the air out of the cooling system. When the thermostat opens, the coolant level will drop in the reservoir, so top it up and replace the cap.
Check for leaks, and check the coolant level for the next few days, and check for leaks.
Dispose of the old coolant responsibly

I have a 1994 Honda accord ex. It is leaking antifreeze


If your antifreeze is leaking into your engine oil, it will destroy the engine quickly. Check the level of both. But...you need to get a pressure gauge on it to apply pressure to the cooling system to see where the coolant is going first. White smoke is a sign of coolant in the engine oil.

Where cN I FIND A DIAGRAM FOR THE COOLANT SYSTEM ON A 1987 FORD 460


Many auto parts stores carry maintenance and service manuals for the 1987 Ford vehicles. Don't recall seeing a "diagram" of a "cooling system" though. There isn't much to it...a radiator, outlet hose to engine block, inlet hose from engine block to radiator with a thermostat installed. Problems...thermostat can stick, radiator can corrode up, leak in radiator can occur, engine water jacket can rust up. Routine maintenance and antifreeze solution can help keep the radiator working fine.

Antifreeze leak


Inspect hoses and generally cooling system after you have warm up engine at operation temperature and stopped. See if steam somewhere comes out .
If cooling system doesnt leaks outside, perhaps engine head gasket is broken. to have an estimate watch if your exhaust is leaking some water or steam when starting engine.
