Question about 1996 Buick Century
It overheated one night on my way home from work. I refilled all fluids after it had cooled down. A few days later it suddenly sounded like semi truck diesel engine and died shortly after. I coasted home and there was smoke rolling from under the hood. This time none of the gauges or warning lights went off. After it cooled off I went to refill the radiator again only to find that this time as I poured fluid into the radiator it was peeing right back out from something on the passenger side of the engine. I've been told it might the water pump. If so how do I replace it?

· Leaky heater hoses
· Replace radiator cap if over 7 year old
· Overflow bottle has a leak??
· Water pump on engine has a worn bearing and the weep hole is allowing fluid out to indicate a worn out bearing.
Overheat problem: (check in order)
· Leak has caused a large volume of air to enter engine coolant system and it needs to be filled back up.
· Cooling fan on radiator not working.
· Engine thermostat not operating.
I hope these suggestions help you find your leak and deal with your overheating problem.
