Question about 2000 Saturn Ls 4dr Sedan

1 Answer

My 2000 saturn has antifreeze leaking from the hose that goes from the thermostat to the heater core. It is leaking right at the clamp where it goes into the core, my question is how do you get the clips off at that point so that you can disconnect the hose to put a new one on? Tony R.

Leaking antifreeze fog on windows

either your heater core has a leak or one of the supply hoses has a leak which is running into the car where the hose clamps to the heater core inlet or outlet tube. hopefully its just a clamp tighten fix.

I have a leak on one of my cooling lines that go into the fire wall of my saturn sl1 and i can see the leak its where the line conecets to the heater core i would think i havent seen a line like this...

Are you sure it's not a squeeze clamp? Most likely it is not leaking from the clamp. Either the hose has a whole right next to the clamped area or the heater core is leaking.

Will not heat. I smell antifreeze inside. Thermostats been changed, new antifreeze added.

If you smell antifreeze in the cabin then it could be a hose loose or the heater core has a leak/pressure leak - in which case get it looked at ASAP because it could lead to overheating of the engine.

Check the hoses going to the heater core and make sure they are not cracked or disfigured and are on tight. Any moisture near or on the core (and/or corresponding corrosion) is an indication the hoses are ot doing there job or the core is leaking.

BTW, If you are loosing coolant (due to a faulty heater core) it could "explode" (relax, you are basically safe on the other side of the dash-board), but the result could be a destroyed heater core and a very expensive repair bill - I know because its happened to me!

L300: Leaking antifreeze onto passenger foot well. Bad heater core or, leaking connections?

Most of the time it's a bad heater core, but don't overlook something simple like a pin-hole in a hose or damaged clamp.

Pipe that comes out of thermostat and goes into firewall is leaking coolent in '02 Impala, 3.4 liter? Whats this pipe? and can i use pipe dope or something?

This sounds like it goes to your heater core. It is like a small radiator inside your car that circulates hot engine coolant to give you heat when you turn on your heater. You should have rubber hoses that connect the heater core to the thermostat housing. Look closely as to what is leaking, the rubber hose, or the thermostat housing, and try to "snug" up the hose clamp if you can. Some time the thermostat housings corrode and leak. You will need to replace it if that's the case.(Keep in mide that some vehicles use clamps that are spring type, and you can't snug them up)

Antifreeze drip on drivers side inside cab of 2000 Audi A6 2.7T

leaking heater core or hose that feeds it. look for hoses that pass thru the firewall to passenger compartment. Most times the hose is clamped to a pipe at the firewall so you may just need a hose

2000 ford escort therostat not working right

Replace the thermostat first. Make sure the antifreeze level is full. Bleed the system. most car's have a bleeder valve located at the thermostat housing outlet.Drain the coolant level only to below the thermostat where it won't leak when removing the housing and thermostat. If it's the heater core it is located under the dash where the 2 heater hoses enter the cab from the engine compartment.
