Overheating leaking


The overheating probably came from the coolant being too low. The coolant in the reservoir won't go back into the radiator if the coolant in the radiator is too low. Until you get it fixed, check and fill up the radiator every time you want to use it. Overheating is very bad for engines and can cause expensive engine repairs.
Where is it leaking, from the engine or the radiator? You didn't say, but wherever it is leaking is the place to start. If at the radiator, and it is not a loose or leaking hose, I would be looking for a new radiator. If it is leaking at the front of the engine and dripping down from there, you could have a bad water pump. This could be an expensive repair at a shop-not the pump itself-they are not too expensive-but the labor cost in replacing a water pump will add up.

The thermostat would not cause it to leak. But when all is said and done, you will want a new thermostat, after the leak is fixed. They are very cheap and it is just good insurance.

I was driving my Toyota 4runner and noticed steam coming out from under hood. I shut engine off. After engine cooled off, it won't start so I can put water in it?


Well, you over heated it if you saw steam coming out. If you warped the head then you may be sucking air or throwing water into the pistons causing a no start. 1st is to make sure you are NOT putting water into the bottle or radiator. You need to be using coolant (Anti-freeze) 2nd, check to make sure you're getting gas 3rd make sure you're getting spark. If all is good then I would remove the spark plugs, and let them dry off because they're probably loaded with gas. Cut the fuel pump from pumping gas into the cylinders by either pressing 1/2 way down or all the way down on the gas pedal. Crank engine over 5 or 6 times to blow the gas out of the cylinders. Replace the dried off plugs or put new ones in. Turn key to on position count to 5 and start car. if that doesn't work try a 1 second squirt of starting fluid into the breather. If it starts great, if not then you probably need to look at the cam or crank sensor.

How to change the water pump on 2000saturnsl2


Here is that info.
Have a full set of Torx sockets inaddition to the normal ones.

Support the engine.
Remove the air filter box.
Remove the front engine mount.
Pick an order here for the belt and pullies.

What ever will work for you. This is because the serpentine belt will llikely not stop the pullies from spinning. A flat pry bar through two of the bolts on the water and PS pullies while you loosen the third works better. Be careful as the bolt heads round easily.

Remove the water pump pulley.
Remove the power steering pulley.
Remove the serpentine belt.
Remove the lower crank pulley. Outer bolts not the center one
Remove the belt tensioner.
Remove the timing belt covers.
Put a coolant catch pan under the front of the engine.
Remove the water pump.
Clean the sealing surfaces. install the new pump anbd reinsatll the removed parts.
Fill the cooling system and hope that the heater core did not drain. The heater core tends to air lock if it is drained of coolant. This is why the coolant is best drained by removing the water pump and not draining the rad and the entire system.
Run the engine until you have good heat in the car with out having to rev the engine.
Check and top the coolant level as needed

check the temp gauge in the car, is it overheating? If it isn't, check the engine where the belts are. If there is coolant coming from there, it is probably the waterpump. If it is further in front of the engine, probably the radiator.

Im replacing timing belt, accessory belts and water pump on my hyundai elantra gls 1997 sta wgn auto transmission. (1)Where is bolt to drain engine block coolant?(2)After removing front engine mountin


(1) No need to know if engine block coolant drain plug was available. Once the water pump was removed, all engine block coolant was drained. (2) After removing the three engine mounting bracket bolts, I also removed the mount bracket from the the body and made enough room to replace the timing belt easier.

Antifreeze drips from crank shaft pully area when running.


it's probably not dripping from the crankshaft... it would drip from the water pump just on top of it...

to check if it is done, take a flashlight and spot on top of the water pump. there should be a hole on top of it behind the pulley...

if it is damp, the pump is gone....

if not it might leak from the gasket...

Leaking engine coolant from bottom of engine front passenger side


Probably a water pump seal unfortunately. Pressurize the system, with the engine off, use a mirror to look under the water pump pulley to see if any fluid is dripping from the water pump seal weep hole.
If it is, change the water pump.
Good luck, let me know.
