Can you see it coming from the radiator?, it may be coming from a hose, the water pump... Either way be careful because the fluid is hot. Run the engine for a few minutes, then turn it off and take a flashlight and look around under the hood to see if it is indeed the radiator and not coming from someplace else.
If you aren't handy you are going to need a mechanic to replace what ever is leaking, because he will need to drain your anti freeze properly and properly dispose of it, replace your leaking component and replace the coolant. You should get it done soon because as you are leaking the fluid, there is less and less to keep your engine block cool and at some point you are going to cause more costly damage to your engine

Would assume you have a hole in your radiator. However, it is possible a leaky hose sprays onto the radiator, and then the fan scatters it.

Does it do it when it is cold, before the fan comes on? If so, perhaps you can pinpoint the leak.

My 99 Audi A4 resevoir is bubbling, had the water pump and timing replaced a month ago anything????


1. Possible air lock in the cooling system, does the internal fan blow hot air? You can blead the system through small bleeding points on the water hoses.

2. Head gasket gone, do the water pipes to the rad expand under pressure?

3. Faulty thermostat. Thermostat controls the amount of water directed to the rad.

4. Not enough anti freeze.

5. Rad cooling fan not starting when supposed to causing overheating. Does the tempture gauge in the dash read normal.
Let me know how it goes.

You either need a new thermostat or the water pump impeller is worn out,this is if the rad fan is working,if the rad fan is not working then you likely need a coolant sensor or a rad fan relay.the water pump impeller is not a serviceable part ,so of it is worn you will need to replace the pump.

Replace small hose and clamp, that hose come's from your transmission, goes through another tank in the radiator, to keep the transmission fluid cool, hope this was very helpful.

Changed thermostat and added coolant but 1997


could be waterpump?
i was going to say rad fan,but if so heater would be hot.
lack of coolant will make heater core to blow cold,if engine heats up with full coolant,usually means poor or no circulation.
water pump?
run engine with full coolant,at operating temp.with rad cap off and look in rad cap hole and see if there is movement of water inside rad.
[rad fan will not come on if water is not circulating through rad water pump?]

I have a rad fluid leak that is spraying onto the alternator and belts . the rad itself is not leaking and the hoses appear fine could this be the water pump ?


It is possible that there is a leak from either the water pump housing or pulley seal. You can also have a leak from a bad radiator cap

Replacing the radiator system for nissan altima 1998


Drain coolant from the cooling system. White plastic drain plug in bottom of radiator.

take off bottom rad. hose and top rad hose.

All wrenches and sockets are either 10 or 12 mm. Remove air shroud from around radiator and fan.
Sometimes its easier to remove fan too.

If its an automatic, remove 2 rubber hoses at bottom of rad.

remove 4 bolts top and bottom that hold rad. in place.

reverse order of parts. Fill with coolant and check for leaks.

That is the basics of it.
