You may have a water pump that is starting to fail. Look for the water pump that's driven by the fan belt. look at the housing of the water pump there is a relief hole that they drill in the casting and when the pump begins to fail it will drip out this hole. If that's where your leak is, it's time to change the pump.

2000 ford excursion...when i go over 65mph the transmission starts 2 leak & i see a trail of smoke behind me...now i need a new dipstick housing because it just broke half way up....could it be leaking...


Sounds plausible that if the dipstick housing is broken, has a crack or hole that fluid could come out and drip on the exhaust manifold causing smoke. This works similarly to an oil dipstick, if you check the fluid cold and notice where the oil is on the dipstick then start the vehicle and shut if off and check the fluid again the oil will be higher on the dipstick (pressure).

I hope this helps!

Cooling system service, Winter prep. all cars and trucks


Modern reditors are real good till they get dirty. Most all modern engines are made of all kinds of different medals. Because of this their are over 7 different kinds of antifreeze on the market. some engines have EGR valve coolersand they use special antifreeze and these antifreezes don't mix with the other kinds and the mix and turn into a sludge that'll stop everything up and then you have real problems. While doing your coolant sevice be careful not to break anything. I've seen several times where while doing the service on the lower hose they pushed back on an airconditioning line and it rubbed on the fan belt and this contac wore a hole in the hose, failing the airconditioner. the hose in question costs over $400 and the other work to install it and get the sytem working was another $150. Inspect your finished work real well and test it too. Most cars need to warm up all the way before they'll show any cooling system problems So a full warm up including the raditor fans coming on and then going bacl off is required just to see if the work is good. Cooling systems that have waited too long for service need the raditor replaced as the modern raditors don't flush well. After cleaning everything and the new therostate and coolant temperture senser are instaled, it's wise to run over the whole cooling system with an infrared temperture therometer to see if everything is warming up evenly. Part of the raditor can be stopped up even after cleaning and pulling a tralior down the highway way far away from home is not where to find out you did'nt check it good enough. Some raditors won;t clean no matter that you try to do always look at the fact that the raditor protects everything after ther engine oil and the raditor protects the oil too. the temperture being right has become very important as the computer systems tune the engine by what the coolant temperture senser tells it too. so if the senser becomes wrong ( they do often ) or the engine runs too cool,( the therostate open all the time or opens too early) the computer will compensate by turning up the fuel to warm the exhaust and the engine, The rich mixture hits you at the gas pump and also makes the exhaust system parts fail quicker, and in states that check exhaust emissions, might not pass until expensive repairs are done. Follow the manufactures reconmendations for antifreze and don't shop for price or that might be the most expensive savings that you ever got.

Heater core


If anti-freeze is actually coming out of the drain tube then yes, you could very well have a bad heater core. You may also be able to smell antifreeze while inside the vehicle if it is leaking. [Its a kind of sickly sweet smell] If just clear water is dripping out then this is most likely from normal condensation that is collecting and dripping off of the air conditioning evaporator core as the air conditioner runs. This condensation collects in the heater, a/c housing then drips out of the same little drain. Water from normal condensation will evaporate off of cement or pavement pretty quickly but antifreeze takes quite a while to evaporate away and feels slimy to the touch. It doesn't take much of an antifreeze leak before the cooling system gets low on so make sure you don't run low on coolant which can cause the engine to overheat.

Minor transmission leak


I would ask for a clarification request, but lets see if I can help you. Dependent on where the transmission is leaking would help greatly, but a few minor things to look at are such things like your transmission dipstick. Yes, the transmission dipstick, when removed, you'll notice a small "vent" hole in it, where it goes into the tube of the transmission dipstick. This is to allow the transmission to "vent", for if it weren't allow to vent internal pressures, then the front seal could start leaking as well as the rear seal of the transmission. If you're experiencing a leak around the transmission's pan's gasket, then a DIY (Do It Yourself), Transmission Service is in order. To know how to perform this task, I recommend a Haynes Manual (located at any Auto Parts Store), for your particular vehicle.

Should the drip or leak be at the front seal, which you will see evidence of the drip around the bell-housing or the part that bolts to the Engine, then the transmission would have to be removed to have the front seal replaced...However, BG® sells automotive products and they do sell a "Transmission Conditioner" that will lubricate dry seals or expand them to stop the leak. The old shade tree way (which I wouldn't recommend), is adding Brake Fluid to the transmission which causes the seals to swell and "perhaps", stop the drip.

Once again, should it need to be taken out to repair the front or rear seal(s), remember to clean the Vent Hole on the transmission dipstick or the problem will occur again.

Hope this helps,

Slow leak of water under car no antifreeze in it no water inside car what can this be


It is normal for all cars that have an air conditioner. It is the condensation of the water in the passenger compartment air.

Like a house window air conditioner, the water collects on a pan and drips out a tube.

I have a Kia Sephia 01. I had my engine over heat and warp almost everything. i've tried replacing the thermostat housing three times but everytime i refill the coolant and it runs through the housing it...


Likely you are overtightening the housing. If you have paper gasket type, try using a double gasket. If "o" ring type, just use the gasket. When tightening the housing take up small amounts on both sides, alternating from one to the other. Tighten till it is firmly mounted but stop there. After filling system, check for leakage. if seepage is noted, take up on bolts one quarter turn or less till drip stops.always alternating from side to side. Unless you have the wrong thermostat in there this pretty much has to work.

2006 Chrysler T&C transmission leak


a bolt most likely vibrated loose and is letting transmission fluid leak out. try finding it and tighten it back up. or your dipstick housing is loose and the pressure is allowing fluid to leak out.
