Where does it leak? If inside the car on the passenger side floorboard, then your heater core is leaking. If it is leaking under the engine on the passenger side of the car, you might just have a heater hose that goes from the radiator to the heater core that is leaking.

Good luck

How do I bleed the cooling system?


Turn the heat control to max and remove radiator cap - add coolant as much as possible. Make sure overflow container is filled to correct level - then Start car and run - after the thermostat opens water level may go down some - keep adding coolant till it is totally full. Turn engine off and put radiator cap back on tight.

Pump is leaking slowly from front seal, makes noise at highway speeds. I'm wanting to flush and refill the system with Barrs stop leak and re conditioner fluid. Wheres the best place to open the system?


Best thing to do is replace the pump as it is make noise telling you that it is coming apart. Unless you have the money to buy another engine you can patch it but a pump is far less expensive than a engine.

It is geting water inth air and ventilation system and throw it ina the cab


It's most likely a heater core leak. Hot radiator fluid is passed through the inside of the heater core, and air is passed over that. if there is a pin-hole leak in the radiator core, then it will come out of the vents. Turning off the heat setting will not change the leak either, it will still leak and collect in the lowest spot, and then blow out the vents when it strikes the fan impeller blades. the heater core is fed from 2 smaller radiator hoses. If you look under the hood, you'll see 2 large hoses that come out of the radiator. you'll also see 2 smaller hoses that go back towards the front of your car through the firewall. these 2 little hoses go to your heater core. Most cars require dash removal to change out the heater core. Unless you are pretty handy, I'd leave this one to the shop.

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.

Hey, radiator fluid is leaking from the back left of my navigator


What happen is there is a return and a supply to your heater core, but there are two heater cores a front and a back if you look underneath the truck you will see lines going to a core out back. I dont believe there are relief opening back there, but maybe a drain. most likely the lines going to it need to be replaced. good luck

2 PART QUESTION, PARKING LIGHTS IN FRONT NOT WORKING AFTER REPLACING WITH WORKING BULBS, BACK LIGHTS WORK .... REPLACED THERMOSTAT HEATER STILL NOT BLOWING AS WARM AS IT SHOULD GOES FROM COLD TO WARM BUT...


Concerning the heater problem.Sounds like you have an air pocket in the system.To remove the air pocket take off the radiator cap in the morning when the car is cold,fill radiator to top.Start the car.Turn on heater to high.Allow car to run until it gets to operating temperature.Now you will see the fluid in the radiator start to go down.This means the thermostat is opening.As fluid goes down fill radiator to top (with 50/50 antifreeze/water mix).You may have to wait a moment for it to continue to move down.Once it stops and the radiator fluid isnt going down,slowly bring up the rpm's (by either turning the throttle with your hand or have someone put their foot on the gas) to about 2000rpms and hold the rpm's there steady.As you hold the fluid will go down a little more.As it does fill to the top again and quickly put the radiator cap back on while the rpm's are steady at 2000.After the cap is correctly on release throttle.This should remove the air posket.

Temperature control


The radiator cap is at the radiator where you refill the radiator with coolant. Unless it is leaking and you hear a hiss. It may not have anything wrong.Neither will the water pump.If the water pump is bad. It has a small hole that will make it start leaking .Check the engine for leaks at the intake or the water pump.You will know where it is leaking. When the thermostat was removed and hopefully replaced , did you bleed the system ? The system has to be bled to remove air pockets. Or the engine will overheat again. Also check that the radiator fan or fans is turning on . If not you may need to replace the temperature control sensor.(TPS)
