Sounds like the intake manifold gasket is leaking.


Hope this helps - KC GTO Dad

I am loosing water when poured into radiator right behind the tension pully on my 1994 chevy camaro out of a small hole could this be a freeze plug blown out


Water will pour out from a dislodged frost plug. You most likely have a leak from the water pump or intake manifold gasket. Also, check your heater hoses and water pump by pass hose for leaks.

Is their a freeze plug on intake manifold that could cause radiator fuild leak


freeze plugs are normally located on the side of the engine block. check coolant hoses that r running close to intake manifold, if u have coolant in ur oil, or oilin ur radiator then u have head or head gasket problems.

Hi, have you checked for intake manifold gasket leaks? Pretty common on Ford V-6. With engine running, spray carb cleaner on the gaskets. If the engine speed changes, you have a gasket leak (yes, driver's side of the manifold).
Thanks for using FixYa.

I HAVE ANITFREEZE LEAKS FROM MY 2000 CHEVY S10 BLAZER. IT'S HARD TO TELL BUT THE LEAK SEEMS TO BE COMING FROM UNDER THE MOTOR RATHER THAN FROM THE RADIATOR OR ANY HOSE I CAN SEE.


a common V6 failure is the intake manifold gasket. coolant will usually leak behind the water pump on the drivers side, however it can leak at other locations on the intake manifold gasket.

coolant leaks from other areas include the heater core, hoses, expansion plugs, trans cooler, and coolant overflow tank.

WHERE THE WATER PUMP IS LOCATED on a 2.3 liter 4 cylinder quad hoc


it is driven off the timing chain, here is how you replace it
2.3L And 2.4L OHC Engines
  • Disconnect the oxygen sensor harness connector
  • Raise the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands
  • Remove the exhaust manifold brace and loosen the exhaust manifold bolts
  • Remove the radiator outlet pipe assembly to the water pump housing bolts and separate the assembly from the engine
  • Remove the exhaust manifold pipe from the exhaust manifold
  • Remove the radiator outlet pipe from the oil pan.On manual transaxles cars remove the exhaust manifold brace and keep the radiator inlet hose attached to the assembly.Pull down on the radiator outlet pipe in order to disengage the pipe from the water pump while leaving the radiator outlet pipe hanging
  • Lower the car remove the brake booster vacuum hose from the camshaft housing also remove the exhaust manifold from the cylinder head
  • Remove the timing chain cover from the engine
  • Remove the timing chain tensioner
  • Remove the water pump cover bolts from the engine block and the timing chain housing
  • Remove the water pump bolts and separate the assembly from the housing

The upper radiator hose on my 96 Mustang GT is not pumping coolant into the intake manifold, it seems that there is alot of pressure in the hose?


The thermostat is behind here. The hose goes to thermostat-housing which is on top of thermostat on the intake. The thermostat is not opening.

How to replace the water pump on 1993 oldsmoblie achieva.


2.4 enigine is the harder of the 3 enignes. it will need a timing chain to be removed and a coolant tube in the back of the engine to be removed. this job on the book calls for almost 7 hours.

if its 3.3 or 3100 its alot easier.

3100 is just 4 10mm pulley bolts and 5 or 6 small 8mm water pump bolts.

3.3 is alittle more work, but same concept as 3100 engine. more owkr only cause its in a tighter area.

good luck,
michael

My daughter's 1997 Saturn is leaking coolant and overheating..


Coolant leaks can occur anywhere in the cooling system. Nine out of ten times, coolant leaks are easy to find because the coolant can be seen dripping, spraying, seeping or bubbling from the leaky component. So open the hood and visually inspect the engine and cooling system for any sign of liquid leaking from the engine, radiator or hoses. The color of the coolant may be green, orange or yellow depending on the type of antifreeze in the system. The most common places where coolant may be leaking are:Water pump. A bead shaft seal will allow coolant to dribble out of the vent hole just under the water pump pulley shaft. If the water pump is a two-piece unit with a backing plate, the gasket between the housing and back cover may be leaking. The gasket or o-ring that seals the pump to the engine front cover on cover-mounted water pumps can also leak coolant. Look for stains, discoloration or liquid coolant on the outside of the water pump or engine.Radiator. Radiators can develop leaks around upper or loser hose connections as a result of vibration. The seams where the core is mated to the end tanks is another place where leaks frequently develop, as is the area where the cooling tubes in the core are connected or soldered to the core headers. The core itself is also vulnerable to stone damage. But a major factor in many radiator leaks is internal corrosion that eats away from the inside out. That's why regular coolant flushes and replacing the antifreeze is so important.
oses. Cracks, pinholes or splits in a radiator hose or heater hose will leak coolant. A hose leak will usually send a stream of hot coolant spraying out of the hose. A corroded hose connection or a loose or damaged hose clamp may also allow coolant to leak from the end of a hose. Sometimes the leak may only occur once the hose gets hot and the pinhole or crack opens up. Freeze plugs (casting plugs or expansion plugs in the sides of the engine block and/or cylinder head). The flat steel plugs corroded from the inside out, and eventually eat through allowing coolant to leak from the engine. The plugs may be hard to see because they are behind the exhaust manifold, engine mount or other engine accessories. On V6 and V8 blocks, the plugs are most easily inspected from underneath the vehicle.
Heater Core. The heater core is located inside the heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) unit under the dash. It is out of sight so you can�t see a leak directly. But if the heater core is leaking (or a hose connection to the heater core is leaking), coolant will be seeping out of the bottom of the HVAC unit and dripping on the carpet. Look for stains or wet spots on the bottom of the plastic HVAC case, or on the passenger side floor.
Intake Manifold gasket. The gasket that seals the intake manifold to the cylinder heads may leak and allow coolant to enter the intake port, crankcase or dribble down the outside of the engine. Some engines such as General Motors 3.1L and 3.4L V6 engines as well as 4.3L, 5.0L and 5.7L V8s are notorious for leaky intake manifold gaskets. The intake manifold gaskets on these engines are plastic and often fail at 30,000 to 80,000 miles. Other troublesome applications include the intake manifold gaskets on Buick 3800 V6 and Ford 4.0L V6 engines.
INTERNAL COOLANT LEAKS
There are the worst kind of coolant leaks for two reasons. One is that they are impossible to see because they are hidden inside the engine. The other is that internal coolant leaks can be very expensive to repair.
