You hit the nail on the head. This sounds like a bad heater hose. If so then it may also be wise to replace all the hoses and belts on the vehicle so you only have to drain it down once. Also check the passenger side floor to see if it is wet. If so your heater core could be leaking as well.

SOURCE: overheating

1. start the engine and leave the radiator cap open.
2. put a cardboard cover or a rug in the front of you radiator.
3. let it runs 20 minutes or more, see if it is overheated and see the water or coolant in the radiator circulated or not. If not, as soon as you have already changed water pump. thermostate and check the hoses, no leak, I think your radiator was blocked.

Did you put stop leak before?

SOURCE: when i run the heat or air cond. i smell water and windshield fogs up in the middle.

Sounds like your heater core is bad. Have someone check out the heating system and possibly replace heater core.. that should take care of the fog problem also by enabling you to use the defrost... Good Luck!

remove the pump, there is a screen filter on the pump itself and it gets clogged very often.

SOURCE: windshield washer fluid won't spray

It is comon for the washer fluid pump to fail. I would also check the bottle for leaks it is comon for the battery to leak and damage the pump and the bottle.

Probably not water pump. Engine is notourious for vapour lock.
Cooling system must be blead of air before thermostat will work. Cool bottom rad hose is a dead give away. If you are still watching this forum reply , and I will walk you through the only way I know how to make it work properly. It's actually easy if you do it my way. I have worked on lots of cars , and this engine was the hardest to bleed out. Did one Yesterday , and works perfect.

My 2007 nissan murano leaks water on the front and back floor what do you think the problem is

Well Terry...that is hard to say with the limited information provided
so I'll give you some areas to look at...listed in order of most likely area of concern.

If your vehicle has a's drains could be plugged which may allow water to drain into the passenger compartment. To check this open the sunroof and introduce a slow stream of water to make sure the roof drains are clear and running freely.

If your vehicle has a plugged front drain pan for the windshield, that may overflow into the passenger compartment. To check this area the wipers and plastic trim parts have to be removed. The fast way is to have a helper spray the windshield with a garden hose while you monitor under the dash for leaks.

If the wet area is on the same side as the vehicles heater core
then the core may be leaking. You will smell the coolant and your windshield may fog up. Check by observing the core enclosure, while the engine is running and also check the radiator fluid level (while the engine is cold) as it will drop if the core is leaking. If the A/C drain pan is plugged (and if it is located in the passenger compartment) the collected condensation may overflow into the passenger compartment..

Good Luck, let us now if you are successful.

Water will not flow through the radiator

take off upper hose -run car drain fluid-when draining stops add water hose to radiator top- run clear water out for 5 minutes-temporarily re-attach hose run for 3 minutes-open hose and let drain again for a few minutes with water hose inserted-take out hose and drain-do not let engine get hot-spray off front of radiator-reaatach hoser and top off at least 1 gallon antifreeze.

Radiator replaced july 2009, upper/ lower hoses no leakage

When the water pump goes bad it has a valve that sprays coolent out of the bottom water pump so it may need replaced.

Navigator leaking coolant

Check you to see that you don't have loose or leaking cooling hoses, a bad radiator cap, a loose radiator drain plug, or a failing water pump.


If all these are OK, put a bottle of BAR's radiator stop in the radiator and run the engine in idle for 15 to 30 minutes. Available at your local auto parts store.

If your leak is not to serious, this should fix the problem. Put a bottle of radiator stop leak in your cooling system and repeat the procedure once every six months, to lubricate the water pump and keep leaks sealed.

Why doesn't my rear windshield sprayer work

The typical problem with the jeep rear window washer is either the hose is blocked or cracked. You can open the hood of your car and check the water tank's hoses for connections, also take the hose loose and check for buildup. Some of the cherokees have a one-way check valve on the line to keep the water from draining back to the tank from the hose. make sure this little valve is not jammed.
If you have access to compressed air, you can take the hose loose from the reservoir, and from the spray nozzle at the window and blow some compressed air thru the line, then reconnect.
The other possibility is that the pump motor isn't working. If you hear the motor running when you activate the switch, you're ok. If not, check the fuse and the connections at the pump motor. Replacement pumps are readily available if needed.

Water leak on passenger side on 99 chevy s 10 not anterfreeze, leaks when not being driven

there is only one thing that leaks water there, that is the AC condensation drain, water forms as part of the AC cooling the evaporator core, this water must be drained away or it will flood onto passenger area, so there is a drain on the passenger side at bottom of firewall, will leak allot of water depending on how humid the air is.

No heat in 00 a4 1.8t Q

To flush the heater core disconnect the two heater hoses under the hood. Use a garden hose to flush out the core by spraying water into one hose connection and water and debri should exit the other opening.
