It is most likely burning up. Or there isn't enough in the system or doesn't work its way through immediately

Why is my 2005 chevy avalanche loose coolant, FAST. I did pressurize the system, but didn't find any leaks. Found TSB from GM about cylinder heads cracking at oil passage issue, but oil is clean.


Coolant can and is lost without getting in the oil from a leaking head gasket or cracked head or block. In the years as a dealer tech most often oil was not in the coolant.

2006 jeep grand cherokee check gas cap error


Hi there, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in St Charles Mo

The "Gas Cap Loose" is a common problem when someone leaves the cap slightly loose, when tightening the cap you must hear the clicks to make sure its tight. The code is there just to let you know the cap is loose.

However, I have found that the gas cap itself was leaking and in some cases the area where the cap tightens had a defect causing it to leak. Unfortunately, a smoke check is the only way to pin-point what is causing the problem. Before spending that money!

The first thing you need to do, just to make sure is replace the cap and tighten it hearing three clicks then let it run-out 40 key cycles to see if it reset, if it doesn't reset then you know you have an issue that needs to be repaired.

Many quarts for power steering


Most automobile power steering units consist of a pump and built-in reservoir for power steering fluid (consult the manual or dealer for proper fluid type as some use Power Steering Fluid and others use Auto Transmission Fluid). The capacity is about a quart.
If you're loosing / adding fluid frequently, you have a leak. The system is a closed type, meaning all the fluid is circulated in the system and theoretically should never "require topping off." Look for wet hoses or drips under the car. Slip a piece of cardboard under the front of the car overnight to see how much / where the leak is located. Have the leak repaired - duct tape will not work!
Good luck!

Pinkish fluid from front of car


this sounds like coolant, as this car uses the pinkish radiator coolant, you may have a leaking radiator or a bad hose, you will need to pressure test the cooling system to find the leak, the only other fluid is the ****** fluid but thats more of a dark red color so i would say its the coolant thats leaking, these cars have radiator leak as they get old but again to be sure you would need to look at the radiator and maybe pressure test it to find the leak. good day

Loosing coolant, but no obvious leaks


Does it hold pressure? If not, first check pressure cap. If it's good, you may have a internal engine leak. Have some perform a pressure check on the system.

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix is loosing coolant and having to add every 3-4 days. No leaks are found. After running car for some time there seems to be no pressure under the radiator cap and its cold.


Try getting your local mechanic to pressure test it. The can pump up the system and check for leaks.
Also the head gasket might have a minor leak. It may only leak once engine cools, the head shrinks and then water leaks out

2000 Dodge Durango leaking antifreeze


I would pressure test the cooling system. The problem could be a loose freeze plug. When you pressure up the system you should be able to see were it is leaking. Hope this helps.

Low coolant


Hi
No 1, replace the rad cap.
You also need to have the cooling system leak tested, for carbon monoxide ingress, the tester fluid will change color, indicating possible leaking head gasket.
The cooling system needs pressure testing, with a test pump.
This will normally show up a leak.
Check under carpets, for heater matrix leak.
Good Luck !

Don´t forget to give a fixYa rating Please !
