Add water to the reserve / overflow tank until the radiator is full (add when engine is running), slide a large piece of card board under the engine, run ten minutes and look for the leak around the areas: upper and lower radaitor hoses, radiator and radiator cap if equipped, then look under the engine toward the lower front of the motor where the belt meets the lowest pulley wheel if coolant is leaking just behind the pulley wheel chances are the water pump must be done but be sure to examine any smaller hidden hoses toward the front of the motor to ensure this is no the culprit. The bottom line is you must locate the source of the leak and be sure when tracing the leaking the engine has ran for a minimum of ten minutes in order to pressurize the cooling system then as you look for the leak shut off the engine it may be neccessary to start the engine up again and run to repressurize the system to continue checking for leaks.

DO NOT RUN THE CAR WITH NO WATER,water has to be present in the reservoir to enable the output of heat from the heaters. switch the engine off put water in the reservoir/antifreeze look at the bottom of your engine, see if there is a leak, ifnot fill water on to correct level, close cap, turn engine on, check for leak under the engine, if not when engine reaches optimum temperature, your car should give out heat. after an hour check level of water in reservoir. if it has totally depleted or decreased by a significant amount then, go straight to the mechanic and tell him your observations, it could be your HEAD GASKET, if it is then start saving

My heat went out on my 2013 Kia Optima I only had the car for a year what do you think the problem is


Your car has a fairly small radiator, and if it gets low, that is enough for the heat to decrease significantly. Check your radiator antifreeze and the radiator cap. You can actually be low on antifreeze and the engine won't overheat but the heat is still gone. Eventually your engine will overheat as ther may be a slow leak somewhere.

Over heating , antifreeze leeking from that water


Hello,

If your water pump is leaking from the water pump for sure that is causing your over heating problem. I am sure that most likely the seal is gone. There is a main seal in the pump, and those are normally the first to go, and you are better off replacing the whole pump, that trying to fix it. Once your water pump is replaced , the over heating problem should be fixed. If pump is leaking it does not have the pressure provided to have the antifreeze and water to flow correctly through engine block and radiator.

Thanks Mike

1999 ford expedition. smells like antifreeze in the cab, worse when I turn on air conditioner ?? I saw a leak today at the firewall. I drove it about 5 miles stopped the car and it hasnt leaked...


This is likely the heater core leaking. Once it turns cold you will have foggy windows too.

When the heat is turned off the antifreeze stops flowing through the heater core, once it was all gone the leak would have stopped until the next time you need heat.

Sounds like the electric fan is not coming on. Could be the switch screwed into the radiator, a malfunctioning fan relay, a blown fan fuse or the fan motor has gone bad.

the fuel system is seperate from heating system.check water pump the impeller could have deteriated i have seen this in another cavalier,once i removed water pump the blades that move the water were full of holes.but first make sure ther is good flow to the heater core.also hope you used a 50/50 mix of antifreeze because solid antifreeze wont heat up.

I would like to know what do I need to check first on a 2003 PT Cruiser if it is running hot Could it be the pressure cap? I have already had a pressure check, and it was ok.


You may want to service the cooling system if it has never been done before. The thermostat may have gone bad and needs to be replaced if it has never been replaced since the PT is 6 years old. After changing the thermostat flush out the old antifreeze and replace with new antifreeze with a mixture of 50/50 antifreeze/water. straight water will boil and steam out and straight antifreeze will over heat since it does not have the same heat transfer as water that's why your mix them 50/50. Old antifreeze will have a higher antifreeze concentration since the water will evaporate. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted. Be glad to help.

3. White smoke all the time out the tail pipe
4.loosing antifreeze but there is no visible leak.
5. Antifreeze in oil or oil in antifreeze.

Need to flush the heatercore


your heater core has gone out, thats why there is no heat and thats from leakage of antifreeze. Usually when you can smell burnt antifreeze it usually points to a blown head gasket or cracked head, smell your exhaust and if you smell antifreeze theres your culprit
