Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

My 2000 pontiac grandam was leaking coolant its not the hoses or the radiator so I assumed it was the water pump. Was going to take it in to get it diagnosed and the pump replaced but the leak stopped. What could be wrong if anything?

There are several places other than the hoses, radiator, and water pump that could be leaking. You should fill the coolant system with the proper coolant, and have the system leak checked. It will cost you a few bucks to have this done, but will pinpoint where the leak is coming from, and save you money in the long run.

Do you have any coolant flow thru radiator with cap off?

Is thermostat in correctly?

Do a Combustion Leak Test at radiator or cap,
on gases from coolant. You may have a Head

I have 2001 alero. Yesterday the coolant light came on and the engine just died. Any ideas maybe fuel pump or timing belt or could it be the water pump


IF LOW COOLANT LIGHT CAME ON ENGINE SHUT OFF BECAUSE IT GOT TOO HOT AND OVER HEATED.WHEN YOU HAVE LOW COOLANT.YOU COULD HAVE LEAKING RADIATOR.YOU COULD HAVE LEAKING RADIATOR HOSES AND WATER PUMP. ADD MORE COOLANT IN CAR RADIATOR UNTIL YOU AT FULL COLD MARK ON THE OVER FLOW COOLANT TANK START THE CAR LET IDLE UNTIL ENGINE GET OPERATING TEMPERATURE.RAISE YOUR HOOD LOOK FOR LEAKS THE RADIATOR PRESSURE WILL PUSH COOLANT OUT WHERE LEAKS COULD BE.LOOK AROUND RADIATOR AND COOLANT HOSES.LOOK AT WATER PUMP.IF YOU SEE COOLANT LEAKING AT WATER PUMP REPLACE IT.

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.

Anti freeze/coolant leasking from the front lower part of the engine, is this the end of my motor???? Its 2000 LHS w/3.5 ltr. V6, thanks.


It sounds from what i can make out that it's leaking from your water pump and will need to be replaced if you mean the engine of the engine where the serpentine belt is. Before you go replacing the water pump, inspect the hose clamps first to ensure that you cover all bases. Good luck and keep me posted, and don't add any radiator stop leak. They just clog up the coolant jackets and restrict the flow of coolant.

If steam is coming out of the exhaust it is probably the head gasket. I take it you are adding a lot of water so you have a big leak or a blown gasket. Check to see if water is getting in the oil, another sign of gasket leak.
