My car constantly runs hot, the abs light keeps coming on, and the theft light keeps coming on. Why is it leaking antifreeze on the right side of the motor?

    What would happen if I ran regular coolant instead of dexicool?? Would that hurt it at all??

    No, just a puddle on the right side of the motor.

    If its leaking from the passenger side front near the front of the engine it could be the water pump, if its coming from the rear it could be the intake gasket.You really need to see where the coolant is coming from before anyone can be sure.The Dex is suppost to keep the engine water passage ways cleaner.

2001 chrysler lhs leaking antifreeze when turn car off


After engine has cooled, put water in the radiator if you can, not the overflow bottle.
Antifreeze raining down - sounds like a water pump leak, or other SERIOUS leak, in a rubber hose, etc. You can ruin the engine if it overheats! Guage will not work with no water in the engine. Have reliable mechanic check it ASAP

Antifreez leak on the right side by the back of mantafold and running real hot


"antifreeze leak on the right side"Driver side or passenger side? Drivers side is the left side passenger side is the right side.

Most likely it is a lower intake gasket. Very common for this and the 3.1 liter engine. The problem is the 3.4 liter does not like to be run hot. It is entirely possible that the head gaskets have been compromised.

If this is the case you may be better off finding a low mileage used engine from a reputable auto salvage yard. The ones we use are away of this issue and come with the head and intake gaskets already replaced for a very reasonable price.

If you want to try and tackle the lower intake manifold gasket I will be happy to give some pointers. It is not a difficult job just time consuming.

Let me know if you have any questions and I'll be more than happy to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com

"Leaking out" also means that you are not developing pressure. It is also the pressure that keeps the temp under control. There is a tester that puts pressure on the cooling system, that is the next step. something is leaking somewhere.

I have antifreeze leaking out of the car and car is running hot cause the anti freeze keeps leaking out where could it be coming from?


If the antifreeze is leaking externally, most likely places are from the radiator or hoses, from the water pump bearing, from engine gasket.

My 2003 olds alero reservoir leaks


Your cooling system needs to be pressure checked to see where the leak is. certain auto parts stores rent out a pressure checker. make sure you have the cooling system full before doing the pressure test. check to see if you have a radiator cap and fill the system that way instead of using the resevoir

2000 Chrysler Town and Country Antifreeze leak


I would replace the Thermostat and see if that will not Stop this. It is Coming from the Overflow Tank. It is getting a Little Warm during Driving and the Extra Coolant that will Build up Preassure needs somewhere to go So, It sends it to the Overflow Reservoir and it Seeps out the Overflow Outlet. This is Pretty Common though and Really not that Big of a Deal as long as you do not loose too Much. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
