Also puddle of radiator fluid ends up inside of a compartment in trunk
Posted by Anonymous on
Get engine hot. (called normal opr, temp, 180f or more)
then the cooling system is under pressures, 14psi.
under those magic conditions all leaks now leak.
how can it not?
then you find it. find the exact spot
only you can do this or your mechanic.
we can not , not ever, here in blindsville.
look under dash and under hood
see those 2 heater hoses, from bay to cab? yes,.
passing through the fire wall
see if it's just hoses that leak.??? cheap fix..
if the hoses are dry and not squirting like all do bad, under 14psi, pressure.
then the core is GONE, (rusted out)
the cores fails only if you do not do service on the car. keeping fresh, AF in the loop.
and checking the fluid with acid test strips, etc.
for fluid that is no longer effective.(acidic)
if the fluid is allowed to go acidic, the core is doomed and the main radiator is next.
there is the cause and cure. all in one post.
if heater core is bad.
log in to mitchell's, and read. (google it)
HVAC chapter, and core swaps.

That is a common problem on this transmission. You can get one from a transmission parts supply company. It is held in with a snap-ring and it has a big spring pushing it out towards the snap-ring. It must be pressed in while the snap-ring is removed. Its best you get someone that has done this before. It is a servo cover, looks like a small hockey puck. Replace and fill fluid and drive on.

IF the belt has a convoluted path, take a snapshot of it to avoid problems later.
Also, always disconnect the negative battery terminal first, then the positive terminal.
You might use dielectric grease on any current carrying connections when reassembling stuff; at the least, some Vasoline. This will stave off future corrosion for a while.

Its the pully. I have a 2006 and had the same issue. It went on for months and I was told it was "normal". Well the bearings on the puly were blown and it broke the belt while I was driving. Cost 20 bucks to fix.
