What I always did to find those is to pressurize the system, and use plenty of light to see where it's coming out. From the age, you may find that the hoses are simply getting old, and need to be replaced.

    I hope it's just a hose. I found out the vortec motor has a plastic gasket that is famous for going cracking causing more issues. It's got 300,000 miles or better my instrument cluster is out and missed the recall on it but from what I can guess is that the radiator doesn't bubble, the heater works fine it is starting to smell like antifreeze though from the outside high!! Does that possibly mean more than a hose?

how often does the warning comes on doing the week or in two weeks? if it was a one time thing or this takes place every 3-5 months i wouldn't worry about it. i will make sure that the radiator cap is on tight. you said that all hose seem to be in good condition i would check the radiator where the cooling fan covers the fins and the water pump because it has a warn hole at the base that will seep out antifreeze when the inside seals are going bad these will cause the smell also.

SOURCE: radiator fluid leak

Do this test, bypass your heater core by removing both hoses and connect them together with a small threaded pipe coupling and then worm gear clamp them on to the coupling. Be sure to mark one of then with a tye wrap so you will know if its top/bottom/left or right. Then run it a few days and routinely check for leaks if there are'nt any more leaks then you either had a small hair line tear or crevice corrosion at one of the hoses at the fire wall or there is a small leak just inside the fire wall on the heater core. When reinstalling the hoses cut a 1/4 of a inch off of them and then reinstall and recheck for the leak. If you still see it then its internal then there is the real pain of changing the heater core. Good Luck :?) DRRXR

If your antifreeze is leaking into your engine oil, it will destroy the engine quickly. Check the level of both. need to get a pressure gauge on it to apply pressure to the cooling system to see where the coolant is going first. White smoke is a sign of coolant in the engine oil.

2002 tribute v6 holds water all day no leaks then once it's parked & off for the night come out in the morning & there will be coolant on the ground.perfect all day running & parked then leak at night

First is it really coolant Put a piece of cardboard down where you see the drip check before you start the car in the AM Color/Feel/Smell this will tell you if Antifreeze/Water from Exhaust start up/ or Oil like power steering etc. Didn't indicate if you've been losing antifreeze? Check all fluids you could have a Windshield wiper fluid leak too.
Hope I helped

I have a 2005 dodge caravan. Its leaking water. I want to know what the problem is.

There is a couple of things it could be.

If you are using your Air Conditioning then the water is a natural thing and will always drip. They must do that when running correctly. So this is a good thing.

Another leak you may have that looks like water may be antifreeze. This could leak from a number of different places and needs to be found and repaired. If it is antifreeze you can tell by tasting it. Just dip you finger in the spot on the ground that is wet. Lightly taste it on your tongue. If it taste sweet then it is antifreeze. Be sure to clean up the leaks on the ground as Cats and Dogs love to lick it up because it is sweet. But it is poision to them and will kill them in a horrible way.

As I said if it is antifreeze you need to try and find out where it is coming from and fix it right away.

Good Luck.

My 1994 sierra 1500 is leaking antifreeze right out. IS THIS MY WATER PUMP?

look in engine compartment from underneath- if water coming from directly over crank pulley(big one closest to ground) ,yes its the water pump- could also be lower hose(radiator hose closest to ground),if leaking up top - could be other radiator hose- if leaking near fire wall- heater hose- ?where is the water appearing?

Can a bad intake plenum leak antifreeze into the engine on a 2002 century 3.1?The computer code was misfire #1 cylinder. Complete tune-up done, same problem, new#1 injector, same problem. Now the coolant...

I see a lot of lower intake gasket leaks on these but usually you get an external leak or you'll find coolant mixed with the oil, not a misfire. Upper plenum is dry on the 3.1 and just bolts onto the top of the lower intake. We usually apply pressure to the cooling system overnight with the spark plug removed from the misfiring cylinder. If there is coolant in the cylinder come morning then you only have to figure out where it is coming from. If the plenum is removed during the test you might be able to see where the coolant is or isn't coming from with a borescope by looking down the intake runner.

Leaking antifreeze fluid from under the engine.

might be a freeze plug leaking, or heater hose. there are three freeze plugs on each side of engine and two in back of engine. most likely if any of them are leaking, it will be the one behind the starter on the far right rear of engine block. they have also been known to leak around the front and rear of intake, where intake, head, and block meet.

Thermostat issues on 99 eclipse non turbo

Well the antifreeze has to go somewhere so its either going out onto the ground via hose or gasket, or it can get into you oil system via gasket or out the tailpipe via gasket. Since you said you cant smell it I would look for a puddle on the ground or in the oil. But since you said its knocking i would have to say head gasket is leaking antifreeze into the oil.... Pull out your engine oil dipstick and see if its white/foamy, if it is its the headgasket/head issue.
