SOURCE: coolant leak 1998 buick external

it sounds like the water pump may be leaking beacuse when runnung the seal is lubricated and may not be leaking at that time but when left over night the seal in the water pump contract and starts to leak. check for stains and leaks with a mirror before starting in the morning i think you will find that it is leaking. don't worry they are not bad to change. good luck

SOURCE: bad coolant w/ leaks from many places, overheated and shut off, heater doesnt blow heat anymore

After the engine has reached normal operating temperature, feel both heater hoses going into the firewall. Are both hot? If both are hot, it's probably the door or doors in the heater case not operating from the selector knob on the dash. If only one hose is hot, the coolant is not circulating through the heater core. Look for a water valve in the hoses that is shut. If no valve, crack open the cold line to see if you can start circulation through the core. If neither hose is hot, pull off the inlet to the heater core (it may come from the cylinder head area) and run the engine and check stream flow. It won't spurt out like a garden hose, it should flow out in a smooth even stream, maybe just enough pressure to push a steady stream. If no flow comes out, coolant is low, or there is a circulation problem in the engine, like a kinked hose, a weak water pump...
Does the radiator cap hold pressure in the cooling system?

I'm loosing coolant / heater does not work once coolant level is low / it's been checked by a mechanic and no leaks were found... radiator pressure is fine... what else can I do.. I' still getting low in...

"Mystery leaks" can be very frustrating..You have a leak somewhere, guaranteed. Check all hose connections, hoses, the thermostat housing gasket, the water pump gasket, and the water pump itself (check it last). Try this: park the car overnight inside a garage immediately after driving it while it is still hot. Park it over a large piece of cardboard. Antifreeze is, among other things, oily in nature, and will stain the cardboard where the coolant drips onto it. The areas that get stained are not necessarily the area from which the coolant leaks--water travels along various surfaces until it reaches a low enough spot to drip from, But if you have a stain, even a small one, smell it...if it's antifreeze, check everything again. Sometimes you have a pinhole in a hose so small it is only open and spraying coolant when the system is at temperature and under pressure. Keep looking; you'll find it. If I helped you, please vote/comment, and good luck.

Coolant leaking even after installatin of new water pump

I can't tell you where your leak is because I can't see your engine...You need to take a very careful look at everything...every hose, hose connection, parting line between heads and block, between thermostat housing and engine and even at the water pump (you may not have gotten all of the old gasket off). If a good visual inspection shows nothing, you can pressure test the system and do a cylinder leakdown test and a hydrocarbon test at radiator to eliminate internal problems. Last but not least, you can have a dye test done (dye added to cooling system, leaks checked with a black light). Can the housing gasket leak? yes...but you need to check everything to determine if it is.

Car is over heating even though it doesn't show on the gauge

check for air in the system,as it will give a reduced water volume to the coolant temperature sender. there is also a fan switch on the rad that turns on the cooling fan,if your fan does not come on it will overheat.
look for green around the coolant sensor,as it mayn be leaking and drawing in air

Something is leaking all the antifreeze and water dont know where the over flow hose is to check it .dont know it might even be radiator cant find out where to purchase a manuel to find where the problem...

Go to autozone's website at and register your vehicle. It's free and you will have access to a full online repair manual for your vehicle. That takes care of your manual problem somewhat, so let's see if we can figure out the problem. Check to see if any hoses are loose or leaking. Check the water pump to make sure it is not leaking out of the vent or "weep hole". If the water pump is leaking, then it is bad and must be replaced. Sure hope this helped you!
