Hello. In order to find the leak I recommend that you put your car up on a lift so you can take a close look at all of the parts, including the hoses and the crossover pipe.

My 2003 regal is running hot and slowly leaking all the coolant out. Can anybody tell me what the problem is?


Yes, you are running hot from leaking all your coolant out. No one can tell you where it is leaking without looking at it. Could be a hose leaking, the radiator, a bad head gasket or intake gasket, the water pump...if coolant is leaking from the front of the engine, that could be the water pump or radiator hose or a water pump gasket. Pretty common for the water pump to leak when it is worn out, that's how you know when to change it.

When you fill the radiator and overflow tank back up to full, does the engine still run hot? If it does, I would not advise running it-have a shop diagnose it before more serious damage occurs. Head gasket repairs can get very expensive-that is the danger you are facing, and if the head gasket has already gone bad from overheating, continued running of the engine can cause you to have to replace the engine. Overheating is a major cause of early engine failure.

Try to determine where the leak is, from where it drips off the engine. The coolant constantly circulates from the engine to the radiator and back into the engine. The heater hoses circulate coolant from the engine to the heater core in the heater case and back into the engine. Besides the overflow tank, these are the only places coolant would be on the car. The engine can leak coolant from a lot of places, but if leaking to the outside, you should be able to spot where it is coming from. Good luck.

I am leaking coolant from the rear of the engine. Got under and was leaking by oilpan but could not see directly due to skid plates and oil etc. any ideas?? only leaks when the engine is running.


Had the same problem. Someone did work on the heads and did a lame job on the water crossover tube that connects to both heads. I solved the problem by replacing the 2 gaskets instead of the silicon they used. The bolts that hold the crossover tube on are to say the least a pain in the *** to get to. Plan on taking the plenum off.

Water leak drips on leftside but is not from water pump. seems to come from back side and runs tword the front, shows wet down low and in back close to firewall.


There is a metal pipe on the back head that has coolant in it going to the heater core. Also there are also small rubber hoses (2) on the driver side toward the rear of the engine. Run your hand under the above listed items to see if you can feel coolant. If the above don't show any leak then it could be a head gasket leaking to the outside of the engine. Good Luck

Vehicle began to overheat, started wanting to stall, service engine soon light came on


check coolant fluid level, after vehicle is cool allow vehicle to run adding coolant/water till the tank is full, then let it run for one minute and shutoff, allow engine to cool and **** in fluid, and more water and coolant (dextron coolant) and start the vehicle back up after it has cooled complety down. with the cap off the coolant place hand over cap, if you get immediate back pressure this isnt from thermal expansion is from a blown head gasket. also for this check to ensure water pump isnt leaking, because the pressure generated by a blown head gasket will blow out water pump seals, if there is no back pressure, but a leaking water pump, just replace the water pump.

need to perform a coolant pressure test. fill the reservoir and after the engine cools down fill the radiator, next start the engine and wait till the coolant system builds pressure then turn off the engine and using a mirror and flash light look for a leak.check water pump, hoses,radiator tanks for cracks,intake gasket at the corners espesically at the back next to the trans.also pull the carpet back and check for coolant leaking from the heater core,and last remove the sparkplugs and check for leaking head gaskets.hope this helped.
