Water is leaking from the floor vents what could be the proble?


Check your heater radiator. It is usually mounted behind/near the glove box areas on most cars. It is like a small version of the large radiator that is mounted on the front of your vehicle under the hood. Antifreeze and coolant (does it smell a little like antifreeze?) flows thru your front radiator, thru the block and hoses, and cycles thru the radiator for your heating system. If the radiator is leaking, often it cycles thru the vents on the interior.
Another possibility MIGHT be the AC system and condensation/AC coolant that is building up in/on the lines and transferring thru the vents.

I would check the heater core. You can rent a pressure tester from the auto
parts store and put a piece of cardboard under the vehicle, then pressurize
the system to the pressure on the cap. Come back in an hour or so and look
at the cardboard. (if your heater core is leaking it will come out through the
air conditioner drain on the passenger side.) This method will identify where the fluid
is coming from in terms of area on the vehicle. You may want to pressure wash the
engine a day before to make things more visible.

Also check to be sure that the
overflow tank hose is connected to the radiator, these can come off and allow
the radiator fluid to escape the vehicle instead of being transferred back and
forth between the radiator and overflow tank as mine did. I didn't even notice as it
had fallen down behind the battery.
Hope this helps.

Why does my 2000 pontiac grand am leak coolant


coolant leaking could come from different areas, i would 1st start checking for leaks around the thermostat area, this is normally where the top radiator hose connects too, then i would look at the water pump area to see if any coolant is visable on the outside of it, also check your heater hoses for leaks too, some cars have even had antifreeze leaks coming from the freeze plugs, which are installed into the engines block, they are normally on the sides of the engines. don't forget to check out the radiator, a good way to find antifreze leaks is after you drive the car for a while, and then park it, and then put a large piece of cardboard under your car, make it large enough to go from the radiator to at least the windshield area, if it leaks then, you will be able to see what area the antifreeze has leaked.

I am having a problem with antifreeze smell and leak. I can't see where the leak is coming from but I do see spots on the ground. It does not over heat but it does have a sent of pancake syrup once heated....


LEAK COULD BE COMING FROM RADIATOR.WHEN YOU FIRST START VECHICLE UP IN MORNING LET ENGINE IDLE TO GET UNTIL THERMOSTAT OPEN AND COOLANT PRESSURE BUILD UP. TURN ENGINE.OFF. RAISE HOOD YOU WILL SEE LEAK. THE COOLANT PRESSURE WILL PUSH OUT ANTIFREEZE.LOOK FOR LEAKS AROUND TOP RADIATOR HOSE AND LOWER RADIATOR HOSE.LOOK ON SIDES RADIATOR AND LOOK BELOW RADIATOR AREA WHERE COOLANTS FANS LOCATED RADIATOR CORES WILL LEAK AND LOOK AROUND WATER PUMP + BYPASS HOSE + CHECK HEATER HOSES TO HEATER CORE THAT GOES THROUGH BACK LOWER FIRE WALL.

LEAKING ANTIFREEZE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON AND


Hi:
If your coolant leak is minor, it would be a good idea to identify the general area that the drip is coming from,,either radiator area , or engine area. A bottle of Barrs leak will do wonders for a small radiator leak, but if your water pump or hose is leaking, they need replaced.
That will help you figure out where to go with that.
You need to scan your car to figure out what is tripping the light. Auto Parts stores dwill do this for free, Once you have a code, you can take your trouble shooting in the direction the code leads you.

Anti freeze all over the place


it could be antifreeze that was on the frame after changing the radiator the best way to tell is run car through a car that has the bottom wash or in a self wash and on... rinse... spray the area around radiator ...then check again later for antifreeze on ground

Oil Leak


The oil leak at bottom of radiator could be oil cooler and/or supply hose. Try check closely for wettest area .
The other leak could be thermostat cover, it only uses a sealing ring and is prone to leaking after time.
