You have answered your own question almost. You will need to jack the car up and inspect everything being that its 91 camara, there is defintely enough room to inspect everything. You either have a hose leak, a radiator or water pump leak. Only inspection will find that out. Thank you,
Lee

Why is my car loosing antifreeze


There can be numerous reasons for coolant loss.

External Coolant loss
1. Coolant escaping from the radiator cap. Replace the cap.

2. There is an external leak in the system which could be from a hole or crack in the radiator(especially the plastic sections) or a hole in a radiator hose or there is a loose hose connection.

3. The water pump gasket has deteriorated and coolant is escaping from around the water pump fitting.

4. There is a crack in the coolant overflow reservoir and coolant is leaking out.

Internal Coolant Loss
1. Coolant is escaping into the engine's cylinders in which event you will see white smoke coming out of the exhaust and you will also have combustion gasses leaking into the coolant passages which will cause bubbles and overheating of the coolant. This problem will be due to a failed cylinder head gasket, a crack in the cylinder head or both.

2. Coolant is escaping into the engine lubrication system and in that event you will see evidence of coolant in the engine oil. Pull the oil dipstick and check the condition of the oil. If it looks a bit like chocolate milk and not just normal oil colouring you have coolant in there. Also check the radiator cap when the engine is cold. There may also be evidence of oil in the radiator coolant that is stuck to the radiator cap and around the neck of the radiator.
This problem will also be due to a failed cylinder head gasket or a crack in the cylinder head or both.

Whatever the cause in your case don't hesitate to have it checked out by a competent professional If you lose coolant and you allow the level to run significantly lower than normal the engine will overheat and you will cause very expensive engine damage.

Coolant leak


Hose ? The drain valve on the lower radiator ? The water pump has what's called a weep hole built into it. When the water pump fails water weeps out of that little hole to let you know it's bad. I think the ion probably has the water pump onth the front of the engine under the plastic cover ? ( not sure on that ) if it is the water will leak from behind that plastic cover making it look like its coming from the area where the oil pan and that plastic meet. It could get blown around by the cooling fan making it look a lot worse that it is. Check the lower hose and all the other coolant hoses for cracks or leaks as well as the entire radiator area ( sides, top, bottom ) check your rad cap when its cool and be sure the rubber seal on the inside of the cap is good and not cracked or dry rotted. If it is then when the water gets hot and pressure builds in the rad it will leak. When its cold it may not.

I am putting water in my coolant bottle twice a day to avoid overheating. It won't hold water?


Is the coolant bottle actually leaking or do you have a more severe problem? I would start by looking on the ground underneath your vehicle underneath the engine. If its coming from the front look at your radiator first, then your hoses upper and lower then your water pump and finally your heater hoses. If you cant see a leak start the car and let it warm up so your system has pressure to it. Then take a look and please dont stick your hand anywhere around the engine while it is running. Last place to look is feel the rug on the passenger side of the car to see if the rug is wet that would lead to a faulty heater core. If your handy with tools call around to your local auto parts store or tool rental places to see if they have a pressure tester. You can then pressurise your system with this tool and it should help you to find the leak.

I hope this helps you out, and if so please leave me a rating.

I have a 1999 chevy malibu that has a coolant leak. The leak seem to be coming from underneath the fan belt end of the motor. As soon as I put water in the coolant jug it leaks on the ground.


Check the lower radiator hoses for a leak and the lower part of the radiator itself for a leak. Also, check your engine oil level and make sure you don't have water in your engine oil. If you do, you have most likely lost one of the timing chain guides and the chain has worn a hole in the front cover of the engine or the block has cracked. Another possible problem location could be the water pump leaking at the forward seal.

Small coolant leak at front of engine hose area, not always maybe 1 out of 5 times driving to work.


If you can narrow down where the leak is coming from, it will be easier for you to fix, but it is most likely either a minor radiator leak, or your water pump. You can put a can of radiator stop leak in your vehicle, such as bars leak. It wont hurt anything. If the leak continues, and appears to be coming from the engine area, the water pump is failing, but also check around the thermostat housing, near where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine

Son and I replaced the radiator.son drove the car and it peged the temp gauge,he drove it home about a mile and a half.the next day I found that a hose was never tightend. Secured and filled,now the temp...


The thermostat has either failed shut or you failed to remove a transit blanking plug in the radiator before you fitted it

Remove the thermostat cover and take it out

You can run the car without a thermostat as their prime reason for being there is to warm the engine up quickly when the car first starts
