The most common cause is the heater hose coming off the head, below and behind the distributer. Usually the distributer is leaking oil, which gets on the hose and damages it. If you don't fix the oil leak, which could be the distributer "o" ring, (inexpensive) or the distributer shaft seal, (expensive) cut a piece of the old hose and use it to protect the new hose from the oil.

Why wont my radiater hold water and why is my catalatic converter getting red hot?


You may have a small leak in your water pump and it only leaks when you drive. Or god forbid a cracked block and the water is mixing with your oil (see white smoke coming from tailpipe?)

Oil leak


There is a timing cover gasket behind the water pump.
You may have to clean off the block to find the leak. Mechanics can use dye in the oil and a black light.

1989 Chevy S10 Blazer 4.3L V6 Automatic: Massive coolant leak occurred after letting truck sit for about 30 minutes after running it for around 1 hour. Coolant steadily flowed from what appears to be on...


Check the bottom side of the water pump for wetness, as well as the lower radiator hose. The water pump if leaking, will run the coolant down the front of the motor,and can appear to be coming from the top of the oil pan. It is nearly impossible for the top of the oil pan to leak coolant.

I have a 1999 Chrysler 300m 3.5 that is leaking oil. There is no obvious source from the engine, though it is possible. The car overheated last year and I had the dealer replace water pump and timing...


CK- Try a set of Valve Cover Gaskets. It cannot leak from the front cover area because it is where the timing belt rides and there is no entrance into the engine EXCEPT the front CAM SEAL... Remove the cover and look toward that seal behind the cam sprocket. If so it is also leaking down into the front cover and beyond. But look at the Valve cover gasket first, since you mention that source.

Milky appearance on the oil cap


Generally that means water in the oil. Is the oil on the dipstick the same color? If so, it could potentially be something very bad, such as a leaking head gasket or coolant passage that is allowing antifreeze to leak into the engine when under pressure. If the milky appearance is just on the refill cap and the oil on the dipstick looks normal, then you could just have a small amount of water from condensation. That can happen if the vehicle sits a long time without being used.

Yellow white goo under my valve covers but not in the oil


you have antifreeze getting in somewhere as it's the only thing that will make oil foam up and get a gooy greyish white color....you might check to see where it shows up strongest and check that part of the engine closely for a leak...

I pour coolant in from the radiator cap a almost instantly leaks


On most cars there is a weep hole that goes out when your water pump does. Chances are if your car was not making any terrible noises that it is just your waterpump.
Try cleaning the area then watching carefully to see where the fluid is coming out.But 9 times out of 10 its almost always the waterpump. If it was coming out of the oil pump then chances are that you will be able to see coolant on your oil dipstick and then thats a whole new set of problems.

Water leaking into car from behind the glove box.

Very bad oil leak


Look under the car and see if the drain plug is screwed tight into the oil pan or if something has made a hole in the oil pan.
Do the bolts holding the oil pan to the block appear to be tight?
Open the hood, reach down behind the motor on the passenger side and see if you can tighten the oil filter.It should be as tight as you can possibly get it with your hand.
