With engine cold, pressure test the radiator. While under pressure, visually check for leaks.

This most likely means that you have a leak in a hose somewhere between your engine and the radiator, when you open up the rad cap it lets the leak breath causing it to gush out, go to napa and buy a replacement radiator hose it shouldn't cost but a few dollars and that should fix your problem.

My 1999 Lincoln contintal started leaking fluid while driving down the hwy. I pulled into a store and it all drain out. What caused this and how much will it cost to fix.


I am sorry about your misfortune. You need to determine what type of fluid it was. If it is coolant it is usually a green or pink. Cooling systems can be pressurized and be tested to find leaks. If it was any other type of leak, proper visual inspection will determine usually where to start.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee that leaks fluid under the car. Took it to Sport Durst. Told them about the leak and that it sounds like water flowing through the dashboard. My low coolant light was


Put a large piece of light paper under the cars or truck motor area and let it set overnight. In the morning see what color the fluid is. Put your finger in the fluid that has leaked if any is there and see if it feels like water or oil. Coolant could be orange or green depending on the type you use. Coolant can sometimes be confused with transmission fluid. Check the water hoses that go into the dashboard for leaks. Also check for dampness on the passenger side of the front seat on the carpet area. If it is wet it is your heater coil that has a leak. Hope this hopes.

Smells like radiator fluid but its not running hot?


If you smell it in the cabin you probably have a leak in the heater core which is up under the dash. Look under the center portion of the dash on both sides and try pulling the carpet back in that area. Chances are you will find evidence of a small leak. Check all hoses for tightness that run along the firewall in the engine compartment as well.

1999 accord is leaking small amount of radiator


If a coolant temp sensor is not working, the fans will not activate, and fluid will go overboard the reservoir, and the temp gauge should have an abnormal reading. Happened to my 1998 accord that the top plastic tank above the radiator had a small leak right where it meets the aluminum honeycomb. It leaked only when hot, and evaporated right away, leaving no traces. Start the car and let it idle for 5 min, and then open the hood and check if the fans are coming on, and if you can see bubbling coming from the radiator top assembly.

Strange smell when heat is on heat works fine just strange smell also have to add coolant about every three months


sounds like you got a heater core leak,the heater core is what the coolant flows thru into your heater box in your dash to allow you to have heat,sounds like the core is leaking,by the smell and the low coolant i would say it is leaking, youll need to replace it before it blows out, you dont need 2 gallon of 200 degree coolant flowing into your car,,,

I have a 2001 saturn wagon, Coolant leak where the alternator is!


What may assist in your diagnostic is a system pressure tester.This has a hand pump to where you can pressure up the system to 12 to 17 lbs and this really helps bring on hard to find leaks. You may be overlooking coolant leaking from the "weep hole" in the bottom of the water pump or a place that might become much more obvious inspecting this system under pressure. The tester also helps diagnostic by noticing if the system holds pressure for a sustained amount of time.A small leak will drop your 12 psi in a matter of a few minutes and you will continually need to pump a few more times to keep that pressure which further indicates the system is leaking down.

Coolant leaking from underneath car near oil pan.


THIS IS STRANGE, BECAUSE THE NEXT PAN BEHIND THE OIL PAN IS THE TRANSMISSION PAN. UNLESS MECURY HAS DEVELOPED SOME STRANGE SYSTEM THERE SHOULD BE NO WATER OR COOLANT ANYWHERE IN THAT LOCATION? IF THE PLASTIC PLUG IS LEAKING IT CAN BE FIXED BY REMOVING IT AND WRAPPING THE THREAD WITH TEFLON TAPE AND RE-INSERTING IT AND TIGHTEN IT. IT THE PAN ITSELF IS LEAKING, THERE ARE ONLY TWO THINGS HERE. ONE, YOU CAN RE-TIGHTEN THE BOLTS TO SEE IF THEY ARE LOOSE AND SEE IT THIS STOPS THE LEAKING. OR, IF THE LEAKING DOESN'T STOP, YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE PAN GASKET WITH A NEW ONE AND REFILL THE TRANSMISSION WITH NEW OIL. YOU MIGHT AS WELL CHANGE THE FILTER WHEN YOU HAVE THE PAN OFF, BECAUSE IT IS PROBABLY OVERDUE. I THINK YOU WILL FIND THIS LEAK IS A STICKY RED FLUID CALLED ATF OR AUTOMATIC TRANS. FLUID. THAT WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED. NEW FILTER, NEW GASKET RETORQUE THE BOLTS, IMPORTANT, DON'T WANT THAT THING FALLING OFF, NEW FLUID, YOUR BABY SHOULD PURR AND NOT WIZ ON THE FLOOR ANYMORE. NOT SURE HOW TO DO ALL THIS? BEAT FEET TO THE NEAREST PARTS STORE AND BUY OR ORDER THE CHILTON OR HAYNES MANUAL FOR 93GRAND MARQUIS AND YOU WILL HAVE PICTURES AND STORIES YOU WON'T BELIEVE! CAN'T GO WRONG! GOOD LUCK!
