SOURCE: white smoke comes out of tailpipe when driving,

White smoke coming out of a tailpipe indicate water. Check your oil. Is it murky looking ? Is there an oily film in your radiator ? You may have one or more problems. Blown head gasket, cracked heads or water jacket.

My grandmother has a 1997 Ford Explorer and she replaced the thermastat and the waterhose so it can stop overheating but her car is still overheating ,why

You need to bleed the air out of the system. Bleed screw is small and painted blue. Start truck and slowly turn bleed screw counter clockwise. Watch for steady stream of water. It will spit air then after a minute or two you will have steady stream of water. After you get steady stream of water then tighten screw and you should be good to go

2002 chevy cavalier 2.2 engine steady stream of coolant from the front of the engine while the engine is off. As I pour it in the fluid streams out. Hoses are fine. I replaced the water pump, and i

has the thermostat been changed lately? did the fluid leakage start about that time? check the thermostat housing and the heater hoses. i would also check that the correct gasket was used on the water pump. it is not unheard of to get the wrong gasket with the water pump. they may look right but a small difference can make all the difference. is it the correct water pump? are all the bolts on the water pump tightened properly?

2003 pontiac grand am bleeding the cooling system

Look on your exhaust manifold. What you are looking for is a little bleed screw. Mine is painted blue. Yours maybe a different color. When you find it start your engine and let it idle for 3-5 minutes. Make sure your heat is turned on full. With the enging running turn bleed screw counterclockwise till water starts shooting out. Let the water continue to shoot out until you get a steady stream. Once you get that steady stream then tighten. Your system is now bled.

The heater is blowing cold air

Coolant system is a closed system. If you are loosing water there is definately a leak somewhere. Check all hoses after filling the system and letting it run until it's warm. Be careful when checking most systems have the water at 185-210 degrees once the vehicle is warmed up. Also check the Heater Control Valve. It allows hot water to travel to the heater core when you set the ac controls to "heat". Could be bad and leaking there. But bad hoses are the most likely culprit. Only takes a pinhole.

After adding water to radiator, and idle till it warm up , it's spit the water back out, oil is clean chevy 97 lunima 3.1


water expands as it warms up, so spitting a little back out is normal.
what you must check for is a steady stream of bubbles coming out of the filler when the car is ticking over. a steady stream of small bubbles would suggest a blown head gasket.
if there are no bubbles in the cooling system, make sure the coolant is up the the maximum mark on the reservoir. then run the car for a day or two, keeping a check on the coolant levels. as long as the level does not go below the minimum marks, then you should be ok.

just to make sure... almost all cars need to run on a mix of water and antifreeze/summer coolant.
amount of antifreeze can vary, but 25% antifreeze will cover most situations..

hope this helps

Have a steady stream of water coming out of the back of the engine,on the passenger side while the car is idling. could that be from the water pump? i don't really know what i'm looking at back there.

Yes most likely it is. Theres a small hole on most water pumps when they start failing antifreeze will begin to leak out this hole. when the pump is moving faster the fluid doesn't have a chance to leak.

I have a 1996 camaro lt1 the waterpump leaks a steady stream out the bottom of the waterpump when it is running and it misses and sputters real bad and I was told the waterpump drives off the cam not a...

Water is getting on your distributer cap..It is located directly under the water pump and getting wet..It comes as a kit (distributer cap,rotary button) and is around $120-$160.. Water pump has to come off to get to it and need to replace it as well when its off or you will just get the new one wet.

Water leak near transmission

freeze plugs checked they are fine all 3 of them. and nope the air conditioner isnt running. example: if i start it and let it idle it will leak visibaly but not a steady stream. after the motor starts to heat up the stream gets bigger and bigger but no gushing. oh and i forgot to mention the water is just water not other fluids in it. not to sound stupid but im not sure about which of the hoses are heater and radiator but we checked them all. there is a plate covering the face of the big end of the transmission and a pipe coming out of it and looks as if it is going into the motor. its leaking at the plate and entrance of the plate is what it seems like.
