2002 bonneville coolant leak


check water pump hose and the pump. a clogged thermostat can cause pressure build up and bust hoses. and of course take radiator out and check for lower hoses and crackes. if no luck, put water in radiator and run car and check for leaks. small cracks in aluminum are hard to see but expands when radiator gets hot.

Busted radiator hose, engine knock


Its possible you hydro-locked a cylinder with coolant which would have bent a connecting rod. When a cylinder gets liquid in it, the liquid will not compress so something has to give.
The head gasket could be leaking to cause the leak into the cylinder.
Hydro lock could also bend a valve.

I have a 1999 oldsmobile aleo i do not know where the engine coolant goes


Are you asking where to actually put the coolant in or asking why your coolant is needing to be replaced often?
If you are not sure where the coolant goes - it goes in the radiator. Should be in the front of the engine compartment, has a cap on top of it (either in the middle or on one side) with warnings about not opening of overheated. Unscrew the top & follow any mixing instructions on the coolant labels.
If you are loosing coolant & don't know why: Check coolant levels first, look for any leaks from hoses (make sure your connections are tight & hoses are not cracked/busted), check for leaks from the radiator itself (any holes or cracks), check the fan (is it turning like it should with the motor running), check the fan belt (is it broken). If all these things check out - get your water pump checked (if it's out, water is not getting to/circulating around like it should). If it's not the water pump, you may have a cracked head gasket. Check the easy stuff first though - good luck.

I had refilled coolant yesterday. Today, coolant is empty and engine gets very smokey.


Always check your hoses for leaks. Check also if your radiator has water while engine is shut off. Add water to your radiator and add the coolant in the reservoir if its empty. Start it and observe your engine while running and check the hoses if anything is leaking. Check underneath of the car if something is dripping. Observe your temp gauge if it rises. If you don't find anything leaking, you could check your radiator only after you let the engine cool down. If the water is drained inside the radiator, then the radiator could be busted. If you have a perfectly fine radiator and the hoses do not leak, then it could be the water pump that's defective. If you are unsure about the problem then have it checked in your local dealership or your friendly neighborhood mechanic.

Car overheated and lost all power. how do I get it to start?


ENGINE NOT GOING TO START IF GET TOO HOT FIRST THING I WOULD REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP THEN ADD COOLANT UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL CORRECT THATS WHEN THERMOSTAT OPEN UP AND TOP HOSE HOT.CHECK FOR LEAKING RADIATOR HOSES CHECK TOP RADIATOR HOSE CHECK BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE.CHECK FOR LEAKS AROUND THE RADIATOR LOOK DOWN BELOW COOLANTS FANS CHECK FOR LEAKS AT RADIATOR CORES OR LEAKS AT THE RADIATOR PLASTIC SIDE CONTAINERS. CHECK FOR LEAKS AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE AND CHECK FOR LEAKS AT THE HEATER HOSES AROUND ENGINE BLOCK TO THE HEATER CORE HOSES. THERE IS A REASON CAR OVERHEAT.IF CAR OVERHEAT WHILE DRIVING YOU HAVE FAULTY THERMOSTAT OR LEAKING OUT COOLANT OR BLOWN HEAD GASKET.IF ENGINE OVER HEAT WHILE SITTING DURING A LONG IDLING PERIOD.YOU COULD HAVE FAULTY COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OR FAULTY COOLING FAN FUSE OR RELAY.HOT WIRE COOLANT TO SEE IF IT RUNS IF NO REPLACE FAN MOTOR. IF YES FAN MOTOR COULD HAVE FAULTY WIRE OR PCM FAILURE. CHECK ENGINE CRANKCASE IF OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE ENGINE HEAD GASKET LEAKING.

MY TRUCK IS LEAKING SOMETIMES COOLANT, COULD IT BE A HOSE OR THE WATER PUMP?


Check the radiator and hoses for leaks. Also, look at the water pump and see if any coolant is leaking out of the vent or "weep" hole. If coolant is leaking from the weep hole, the water pump is defective and will need replaced. When checking hoses, look for cracks and leaks, especially around the hose clamps. Hope this helped and best wishes.
