Is it a straight 6? Check water pump for signs of leakage. Will look like a dried stream of buildup. These engines have head problems an my be leaking in head gasket. Check oil if you allow it to go something major is going to happen . Those engines are simple an tough, but when heat problems arise find it quickly. You also may have a leaking hose but i doubt that since it is over heating . Water pump or head gasket are tops on list for straight 6.

SOURCE: Anti-freeze leak

The freeze plugs on the back of the block could be corroded and leaking.

SOURCE: anti freeze leaking from driver side engine block

You did not mention which engine you have but only three things I can think of that will do that. You need to get underneath and check freeze plugs, head gasket and block itself (for cracks). Leaks aren't that hard to find but you need to look!

SOURCE: I changed the lower raditor

the sweet sickly smell is normal for new anti freeze.once you have run the car for a couple of miles the smell will dissipate.the white foamlike stuff is chalk/lime in the water,harmless.

SOURCE: 2000 grand cherokee laredo overheated

the over heating can be as a result of a failing fan, dirty radiator system that needs to be flushed or the head gasket that needs replacement.

SOURCE: keeps overheating

try to overhaul the radiator ,try to replace the radiator cap w/ new ones,try not to fill the water reservoir leave some space so when it boils air can easily rotate,if still doesn't work maybe u need to replace the cylinder gasket cause it also causes an overheating if it does have defect,or try to check water pump maybe its not working or has a problem

2009 Chevy impala overheating even after putting coolant


First of all, Alysa, that's not nearly enough information. The most common causes of engine overheating are: leaking hoses, radiator leaks, heater core leaks, a failed water pump, thermostat leak, freeze plugs leak, automatic transmission oil cooler leak and (I hope not for your sake) a cracked block or cylinder heads. Make sure you have the radiator filled with the proper amount and ratio of water and anti-freeze. Simply dumping more anti-freeze in there won't help. Check for leaks and check the thermostat before doing anything. Hope this helps. . .

Coolant leaking from above front suspension


If it's from the front of the engine, the water pump may have failed. Check for water coming out from the bottom of the pump.
Was the overheating caused by low coolant level?
If not the pump, check your engine freeze plugs and hoses.

I am leaking anti-freeze in my chevy 1994 cheyenne C2500, and i dont now know how to change the heater core. Which i think that is the problem because i have lost a lot of anti-freeze and now my truck is...


it prob isnt the heater core usually when that goes u blow antifreeze steam into cab from heater vents. prob water pump or pin hole in radiator line if from the front of the engine or bad gaskets or bad freeze plugs if from the rear also check ur thermostat to make sure it working prop because u could simply be blowing out ur over flow line cause **** is plugged an over heating

Gradual loss of radiator anti-freeze


this is a catch 22 type situation ,use eythelene glycol antifreeze not anything expensive this is only a catch the punter thing using this or that special stuff ,now have a good look around the engine for the leak and take that silly plastic engine cover off so you can see what happening ,now i suspect that either a heater hose is loose or splitting or a water pipe somewhere ,i do not suspect head gasket at this mileage but i do suspect a water pump possibly ,Now if you cannot find a obvious water leak then put some radiator sealer in the system and see what happens ,as for using the AC well this will engage the cooling fan keeping the engine cool in a traffic jam ,also do not get technical thinking of boiling points with or without the antifreeze as the pressure in the cooling system raises the boiling point hence a 13lb rad cap ,old cars only had a 7lb rad cap .Iam old school and i firmly beleave in a weekly check of levels and i suspect that this hasnt been done and with that big plastic cover the engine to stop the noise ,well you know what to do with that ,store it in the garage

Over heating 1997 Kia Sportage


Does the radiator fan operate properly? The radiator fluid level (checked when the engine is cold) must be 'at the cap' with the reserve tank about half-full. Blow out the radiator core with compressed air (from the engine side) to clean it of bugs and other debris. Does the anti-freeze look green or rust brown? If rust colored, the entire cooling system needs to be drained, cleaned with system cleaner, and refilled again with a 50/50 fresh mixture of anti-freeze and water. If combustion gases are leaking into the cooling system through a bad gasket or warped cylinder head, that will cause overheating. Check the radiator cap for condition of it's seal. Occasionally, the water pump impeller will begin slipping on it's drive shaft causing limited water flow through the system. That is checked by reducing the level of fluid in the radiator to just above the core and temporarily removing the thermostat. You will observe water moving rapidly if the pump is working.

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.

Anti freeze leak


hi are you overheating and are you having to fill it up because it is leaking or were you just toping up and is it coming out of the overflow on the expansion bottle to find a leak that at first appears not to be leaking the best way to find it is to put a pressure tester on it see if the pressure goes down as it will if there is a leak but then you will see it and don,t take the water cooling systems caps off when hot yates210456

Car leaking coolant


First of all ensure that your car is leaking coolant fluid, and what is dripping is not just water condensation from the air conditioner.
If you have a coolant liquid leak, it can be from one of the ducts leading to radiator , from water pump or radiator itself. Check liquid levels, and if you have a leak have the car inspected by a qualified mechanic.
A broken water pump, for example, can cause your motor to blow in few miles.
