Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue
Car overheated alot of water leaking out the bottom what could be the problem
First find exactly where the water comes from.
broken hose or hole in radiator - if no leaks here then :-
broken / loose drive belt to water pump - sign is no heat to internal heater
thermostat stuck - heats up and overheats quickly. water from exits rad cap area
also check radiator cap - should be sprung to contain water under pressure, usually these are very reliable
check oil filler cap [inside of] - should be oily and grey/black If it has a covering of what looks like soft brown aireated jelly then possibly hear gasket or other internal engine leak between water & oil ways. The excess pressure from engine will force water out of rad cap area . A compression test with variable readings for between cylinders will confirm this. Hope its not this. It's expensive
