    Actually its a metal pipe that goes bolted down into the water pump and wraps up and around behind the intake. Any clues?

That hose appears to be your heating hose.On that line the warm water goes in to the cabin and makes your radiator warm,same size hose should be there as well as the water comes back on that one.

    If it is a steel pipe behind the intake then it is the pipe which suppose to warm up the intake to get warm air in the engine in wintertime.If you can remove this pipe then you can try to solder it .

I have a coolant leak on a 2001 Malibu with a 3.1 engine that is leaking behind water pump. It is not the pump as I have replaced it. New radiator replaced the old one which was leaking. I have checked all...


If it was a freeze plug, it would keep leaking with the engine off. You are going to have to move stuff around, is there a hose outlet down there? Some GM engines had a plastic fitting screwed into the block for a bypass hose fitting. I found one that had broken off flush with the block.
It might help if you register for free at autozone.com. You can list your vehicle information, then look for anything to do with the coolant system. A Haynes manual would almost certainly have a good description. + Good luck.

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.

My 1998 jeep grand cherokee is running hot and leaking water, is the water pump bad?


well first i would check all the water hoses in the engine compartment for cracks and leaks then check around the radiater for leaks if you don't see any water leaking from the hoses or the radiater then try to see if you see water coming from the water pump behind the cooling fan if the water is leaking from behind the cooling fan then it is most likely your water pump

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.

I have a water leak. the hoses all seem good as does the "weep hole" on the water pump. The oil and trans fluid look normal and the car runs fine. The only thing I see is below the alternator...


Not all water pumps leak from the weep hole, if the water pump casket becomes worn then it will leak from behind the water pump. You can also have a leak coming from the thermastat housing. To find out exactly have a pressure test performed on your car.

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

Water is leaking above water pump against block but i can not see. i reveved up car now when i put water in just comes right out but i cant see behind the water pump in the upper area is ther a hose behind...


could be the weep hole located on back of water pump right on top if its leaking its probably pissing out if this is the case its time to replace the hoses are on both sides but sounds like if u cant see and its behind pump its the weep hole try using a small mechanics mirror to take a peak with engine off you should see a antifreeze water mark indicating the leak
