Check under the water pump for a leak. check for split tanks top and bottom. check bottom hose. check for leaks in the radiator cores . The best way to test is to have a radiator shop pressure test the cooling system then you can see where the leak is

SOURCE: Coolant leaking from underneath car near oil pan.

THIS IS STRANGE, BECAUSE THE NEXT PAN BEHIND THE OIL PAN IS THE TRANSMISSION PAN. UNLESS MECURY HAS DEVELOPED SOME STRANGE SYSTEM THERE SHOULD BE NO WATER OR COOLANT ANYWHERE IN THAT LOCATION? IF THE PLASTIC PLUG IS LEAKING IT CAN BE FIXED BY REMOVING IT AND WRAPPING THE THREAD WITH TEFLON TAPE AND RE-INSERTING IT AND TIGHTEN IT. IT THE PAN ITSELF IS LEAKING, THERE ARE ONLY TWO THINGS HERE. ONE, YOU CAN RE-TIGHTEN THE BOLTS TO SEE IF THEY ARE LOOSE AND SEE IT THIS STOPS THE LEAKING. OR, IF THE LEAKING DOESN'T STOP, YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE PAN GASKET WITH A NEW ONE AND REFILL THE TRANSMISSION WITH NEW OIL. YOU MIGHT AS WELL CHANGE THE FILTER WHEN YOU HAVE THE PAN OFF, BECAUSE IT IS PROBABLY OVERDUE. I THINK YOU WILL FIND THIS LEAK IS A STICKY RED FLUID CALLED ATF OR AUTOMATIC TRANS. FLUID. THAT WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED. NEW FILTER, NEW GASKET RETORQUE THE BOLTS, IMPORTANT, DON'T WANT THAT THING FALLING OFF, NEW FLUID, YOUR BABY SHOULD PURR AND NOT WIZ ON THE FLOOR ANYMORE. NOT SURE HOW TO DO ALL THIS? BEAT FEET TO THE NEAREST PARTS STORE AND BUY OR ORDER THE CHILTON OR HAYNES MANUAL FOR 93GRAND MARQUIS AND YOU WILL HAVE PICTURES AND STORIES YOU WON'T BELIEVE! CAN'T GO WRONG! GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: 1990 Pontiac Grand Am 2.5 L engine. Leaking

That drain line is for the box that holds the air conditioner evaporator and the heater coil. It seems that your heater coil has sprung a leak and the leaked fluid is coming out the drain. You have to replace the heater coil, which on most cars involves removing a lot of the interior equipment, including the dash board on many cars. A job best left for the repair shop unless you're very adventurous and patient. Even then you will have to take it to a shop to have the air conditioning system recharged.

Hello I have a toyota mr2 86 and the coolant is boiling inside of the overflow container and there is small coolant drip from radiator in front of car. In need of suggestions


I guarantee you, the water is not boiling in the reservoir. There is no heat source there, and even if it came out of the radiator boiling, by the time the coolant traveled down the hose to the tank, it would have lost too much heat to boil.

But if steam is coming out of your radiator into that tank, it would look like it was boiling.

It sounds like you have a radiator leak, and that you are therefore low on coolant, and the engine is overheating. With the car stone cold, open the radiator cap and top off the coolant as full as you possibly can, then replace the cap. While you have the cap in your hand, inspect the rubber gasket that seals it when it is installed. If that gasket is not in good shape, the normal operating pressure will force coolant into the radiator excessively, leaving not enough to cool the engine.

After a short drive that is sufficient to reach operating temperature plus about 5 or 10 minutes, and then allowing the car to fully cool, open the radiator to see if it is still full. It should have developed no substantial amount of space above the coolant surface, it should still be full.

If there is space, perhaps there was some vapor trapped somewhere, so try one more time. But if you are developing space in the radiator, you have a leak.

Hi I have a 2003 vw Passat 1.8t and I need to find the tempcontrol sender . can you help?


If it's the outside air tempreture sensor its under the centre of the front bumper area and visible from underneath with the large plastic undertray removed, the water temreture sensors are on the firewall above the oil filter, there are 2 and one is for the ecu and one the dash tempreture.

Heater blowing cold air and I'am loosing water from my plastic container


You have a coolant (radiator fluid) leak somewhere. Low coolant will cause you the no heat problem but things could get a lot worse. Have a pressure test done on your radiator. Look for any coolant leaks from your vehicle. If you find leaks, tighten or replace that part if necessary. Also have your thermostat checked as well.

How do i get the oil filter off of my 2007 beetle??


Depending on engine, 2.0, 1.8 and 1.6 petrol have the usual steel cased filter underneath you just need to unscrew it off, you will need to remove the plastic undertray to access it though. 1.9 tdi and anything else without a clearly visable steel filter underneath will have a round plastic cap somewhere under the engine cover, around four inches wide, with either a 32mm or 36mm hex on the top. Unscrew this cap and the filter should come out with it.

Over heating


Overheating on the SW20 (Mr2) is usually down to one of the following:

Air lock:From a badly bled coolant system (Easy fix)
Thrmostat failure:Preventing the coolant getting to the front radiator(Easy fix)
Water pump failure:(Water pump can be fubar(Not so easy a fix but not too expensive for the mechanically minded)
Head gasget:It can go,when it does it blows all the coolant out of the radiator(Expensive to fix and not easy at all)
Radiator filler cap:Common fault on older cars but less than 10 bucks to fix(Not even a problem)
Heater pipe leak:They don't call them the pipes from hell without good reason.(Pain in the neck if they go,not expensive to repair but takes ages)

Hope that clears it up a bit :)
