My radiator on my 86 mazda keeps loosing water


well, check the hoses first...do you see anything wet around the clamps or ends of either of the hoses? If not then look at the radiator cap...is there fluid around it? Look at the overflow bottle that is near the radiator...is it cracked? Finally look straight down at the radiator from above the cap...do you see fluid on ANY part of the radiator? especially down at the bottom of it? Look around the engine bay, do you see splatter marks from fluid hitting the fan? If you see fluid anywhere on the radiator itself fill the radiator back up and run the truck until it gets hot and see if you can spot the leaks. If however, there aren't any obvious leaks at all up front...go look at the heater lines that run into the firewall...if they have any leaks then you've found your solution. Another place to check would be around the water pump...just get a flashlight and look for fluid near the pulley that goes to the water pump. Good Luck

Test Water Pump on BMW


Loosen of the tension on the belt. see if there is any movement in the pulley (up-down -in -out Spin the pulley and check for roughness in the bearing.; Check for water leaking from the small hole in the housing at the base of the pump housing . Refit belt and correctly tension if nothing found. Check when it over heats (idle at lights) hard runs (speed) starts when cold and temp gauge continues to rise after engine is hot check if fan comes on at all.. Is the engine actually getting hot or is it an indication from the temp gauge ( faulty temp sender). If all is ok engines run hot if they are running lean so check the o2 sensor in the exhaust

How can i tell if my waterpump is bad? shut the car off and came out later to anti freeze in the driveway


If it's leaking that bad, open the hood take off radiator cap and fill with water (without making a mess and spilling a bunch. Then simply watch for where the leak is at, if it's leaking from a hose, the radiator, or from around the area where the belt is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment. If it's leaking from the passenger side around the belt area your water pump is the most common cause. They are made so when the bearing wears out around the shaft the pulley bolts, it has what are called weep holes and the water just runs out to tell you to replace the water pump.

Why is my 1999 jeep grand cherokee is leaking all of my coolant i replace thermostat and seal can it be my water pumpbefore it was doing that my heater wasnt blowing hot wat cant it b


Likely the heater isn't blowing hot because the coolant level is low. You need to look at everything...hoses, under the pump pulley, radiator, both sides of the engine from underneath and check the tailpipe for steam. No one can tell you what's leaking without looking at it. There are too many items that can leak. Look carefully and you will find the problem. When checking, look first with the engine cold and the cap removed. If you find nothing, put the cap back on and run it to build pressure and look again. (careful working near fan and belt...you can get hurt there)

My '98 Taurus started making a clicking noise yesterday and seems to be running hot, the noise continues even when in park and increases with RPMs. I'm guessing that it might be the water pump, I don't see...


most likely you're right on it bad water pump, some times they don't always leak when bad. you can take radiator cap off while running to look @ see if it's circulating though thats a start

Small leak in a 98 jeep grand cherokee near the bottom pulley on front of engine..what is it?


If its leaking coolant, likely it is coming from the water pump above the lower pulley and running down to there. Look carefully and use a light.
If leak is oil, the pulley seal is leaking.

1999 2.0L VW Jetta coolant leak behind crankshaft pulley


The MK3 VW's are prone to failure of the "coolant flange", which is located to the right of the valve cover, and will have 4-5 hoses and or sensors sprouting from it.

I'd be willing to bet that this is the source of your leak, not the cam pulley.

The part is inexpensive.
