2002 bonneville coolant leak


check water pump hose and the pump. a clogged thermostat can cause pressure build up and bust hoses. and of course take radiator out and check for lower hoses and crackes. if no luck, put water in radiator and run car and check for leaks. small cracks in aluminum are hard to see but expands when radiator gets hot.

Get the coolant pressure tested, its definitely leaking coolant. You will need to get the coolant running line.


Pressure test will help you to know from where exactly coolant/refrigerant is getting leaked.

Possibility of a cracked block. how can i be sure/


Vehicles: Any with the above symptoms

A cracked cylinder block will cause either:
(a) motor oil contamination of engine coolant
(b) coolant contamination of motor oil
(c) white exhaust smoke, due to coolant seeping into one or more cylinders.
(d) more than one of the above
(e) all of the above

Oil infiltrating into coolant is easy to see - drain some coolant out through the pepcock at the bottom of the radiator, and place it into a styrofoam coffee cup. Oil droplets floating on top of the green (or orange) coolant are easily seen. Or visualize oil by looking into the top of the radiator through the radiator cap.
Coolant infiltrating into and mixing with motor oil will permanently damage the engine (seizing it up through loss of lubrication), and must be prevented.
A leak from above the front suspension is, as physicians like to put it, "nonspecific", with the most likely cause a water pump seal or hose/hose connection.
A leak from near the fire wall will usually be a heater core hose, or hose connection.
A coolant leak on the same side of the engine as the water pump is a leaking water pump or water pump seal until proven otherwise.

To rule out everythng else, here's the 1999 Honda CR-V Troubleshooting Guide for Coolant Loss/Coolant Leaking:

Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect Water Pump - Worn, Cracked or Leaking Water Pump, or Water Pump gasket.
2 Inspect Head Gasket - Leaking Head Gasket.
3 Inspect Radiator - Leaking Radiator Hose(s).
4 Inspect Radiator Cap - Worn or Damaged Radiator Cap.
5 Inspect Radiator Hose - Ruptured, Cracked or Leaking Radiator Hose.
6 Inspect Freeze Plug - Leaking Freeze Plug(s).
7 Inspect Intake Manifold Gasket - Leaking, Worn, or Damaged Intake Manifold Gasket.
8 Inspect Water Outlet - Cracked, Leaking or Damaged Water Outlet.
9 Inspect Heater Control Valve - Leaking or Faulty Heater Control Valve.
10 Inspect Radiator Drain Pepcock - Loose, Damaged, or Faulty Radiator Drain Pepcock, or Pepcock O-ring.
11 Inspect Engine (DOMESTIC ONLY) - Cracked Cylinder Block Leaking Coolant into at least one Cylinder, causing white exhaust smoke.

There are several things to check:
  • Low coolant level
  • Leaking radiator hose; a small leak under pressure would cause you to lose coolant
  • Leaking radiator line (located on the bottom of the radiator
  • Bad thermostat; A bad thermostat will not allow sufficient coolant to flow to keep the engine cool

Coolant leaking. Can i fix it myself?


Just find the leak. Do you know where the leak is at? Check all end hoses. Make sure clamps are on tight. Leaking coolant on the wires cause major problems.

It may be the radiator cap itself, but is most likely a crack that has formed around of near the radiator, causing steam to exit from this area. It seems like it is a small leak, otherwise the coolant loss would not be so gradual. Radiator replacement will most likely solve this problem after the radiator is inspected and a crack is found. I do not recommend the use of Stop leak to correct leaking radiators, in the long run, they do more harm than good.

Car is overheating no heat in car


You probably have air in the system caused either by a leak or blown head gasket. Fill up the system and check for leaks.

If your car has been losing coolant, you know you have a leak. If it isn't leaking out the bottom, it may be going into the oil pan or into the combustion chambers, but let's leave that horrible possibility for last. Some common leaks are the water pump weep hole (small hole at pump shaft bushing that leaking when bushing wears out), radiator hoses, other coolant hoses, radiator, heater core, and my personal favorite--rotten freeze plugs. If you have any of these leaks, you car will habitually be running on less coolant than it is designed for, and the coolant will boil at a lower temperature because of reduced system pressure. I'm not going to cover how to repair all of these but rather ask you to get back to us if you need help with them.

If none of the above are the cause of overheating, we must consider some more serious causes. A blown head gasket or cracked head/block can allow oil into the coolant or combustion gases into the cooling system (among other things that do not cause overheating). This latter case can cause the engine to overheat within a few minutes. If you car overheats this quicky, a blown head gasket is likely (but I would still advise someone to check the thermostat before pulling a head). This condition can be verified by removing the radiator cap and running the engine until hot. Bubbles of combustion products will be seen coming up in the radiator or into the coolant reservoir. As mentioned under bleeding after thermostat replacement, it is normal to have air come out during bleeding of the system, but if the bubble continue indefinitley, you are getting combustion products.
Oil in the coolant can also cause overheating as the oil mixes and thickens or "foams" the coolant until it cannot flow or transfer heat sufficiently. This contamination is easy to observe.

Antifreezes leaking from bottom of honda accord


If there is oil in it also its very bad. There could be numerous cause for this. Little and big. You need to narrow down where the coolant is coming from. Most of the time, with coolant leaks, it drips off the block, or the bottom of the radiator. It could be a cracked radiator, a clogged radiator, bad coolant line or lines, bad head gasket, ect. Where the coolant is coming from is necessary to diagnose the problem.

Your overflow tank works on suction to return coolant to the radiator. Check the line and nipple ends for any cracking (cracking on the plastic radiator nippl is very commom). The radiator nipple is not under high prrssure like the fluid under the cap (inside the coolant system). It's on the otherside of the cap and will never "stream or gush" coolant (uless you are over heating badly). As the coolant in the radiator cools it creates a vacuum and draws coolant back from the overflow throgh a small hose. You might not see any leaks as coolant heats up and travels to the overflow. It might be a very small leak and you are usaully driving around and drying up before you see it. Even with a very small crack it will only draw in air and not liquid (as liquid is way heavier than air). Also, I've seen where people have taken out (or fallen out) the tube attached to the overflow cap that goes down deep into the overflow tank. That tube should be long enough to almost reach the bottom of the tank. It's hard to know if something is missing if you do not know it was suppose to be there in th first place but it needs to be there.
