You have an antifreeze leak. Probably in the heater core (a small radiator inside of the dashboard that heats the air as it passes through). When the engine is running do you see any steam around the engine? Or smell the sweet antifreeze smell around the engine? If not then it is probably the heater core instead of a hose or somewhere on the engine. Does this truck have the option to switch the heater to recirculate he air inside the cab instead of drawing in outside air? If it does then you can set it to recirculate the air inside and if it still has the smell then its definitely the heater core. Often with a leaking heater core the passenger side floor and firewall area will get wet, but not always.

1999 Kia Sportage 4Wd leaking antifreeze, timing belt loose, not turning cam shaft, but not broken. What is causing problem?


If you have antifreeze in ya timing belt cover it can only be one thing. Your water pump seal is going bad. You will not see it if it is not under pressure but it will leak. It's not a bad job to do if you know what ya doing but if you dont it can be a night mare. When you change your water pump change the timing baelt along with it because the antifreeze will rot the belt and it will break. Leaving you beside the road wait for a tow truck.

I had the head gasket replaced but its doing the same thing it was doing before still running hot and now it wont turn over and start


It sounds as though your head gasket wasn't (at least not the only) the problem. If it won't turn over, it sounds as though the pistons are seized. It is entirely possible you have a cracked block. It might also be that your water pump stopped working and caused the block to overheat (although a broken water pump usually leaks antifreeze/water all over the place). Depending on how long you ran the car hot (with little or no water), that engine might be completely unrepairable, especially if it is seized up. You would need to take it to a shop and have them look at it to be sure.

Mail.comI am leaking antifreeze. The Nissan dealer checked it and said it was the water pump. Where is the water pump located exactly? Thanks


The water pump is part of the timing belt assembly, on the front of the engine, so it is labor intensive to replace. Most will recommend you replace the timing belt, idler pulleys, timing belt tensioner and seals at the same time, so you don't have to do the job twice. Most reputable shops will always replace the water pump when they perform a timing belt replacement package, again so you don't have to do the job twice. Hope this helps. Have a nice weekend :O)

My 1996 oldsmobile acheiva is leaking antifreeze but it doesn't seem to be a leak in the radiator. Could my water pump need replacement?


Sounds like the radiator is OK...if you cannot see any visible leaks...if you have inspected upper and lower radiator hoses and connections...it could be the water pump...however you should be able to see some antifreeze around the water pump pulley...changing the water pump on your Oldsmobile is not a major job...you do not have to remove any motor mounts to do this...only if your serpentine belt is worn and needs replacement...your Olds will require the removal of the upper motor mount in order to change the serpentine belt...sounds like you are on the right track...:)

Water pump needs replacement


Depends on which engine if it's the 2,2 engine fairly easy but the 2.4 is a big job Timing Cover & Exhaust Manifold Removal Required. With the 2.2 locate water pump loosen the bolts on the pulley then remove the serpentine belt. Finish removing the pulley bolts now you can get at the water pump bolts. Use a container under the car to catch the antifreeze. Remove the water pump from the engine, installing new pump in reverse order to removal.

Squealing noise coming from the belts while engine is running


take off your serp-belt and spin your water pump, alternator, idler pully and see what squeaks or feels rough. your water pump bearings may be bad. the only thing you can do is change it. dont forget to change your thermostat and antifreeze. FYI your antifreeze is made with lubricants in it for your water pump bearings.

Leaking water pump?.. smell of antifreeze and smoke comming out of vents.


THIS IS NOT THE WATER PUMP, IT IS THE HEATER CORE LEAKING, TO REPLACE THIS REQUIRES REMOVING THE DASH, NOT A JOB FOR A HOME MECH.
