Well, take a light and a mirror, install new water to your system, then start looking. Once you find the source of the leak, you will know what is the next step.

No leak and 2003 nissan xterra smell like anti freeze check radiator,water pump.hoses.heater core.anti freeze level in radiator is perfect


If you can smell,then you have a leak,if the heater core has a pin hole,then the box that houses it will hold the antifreeze to wear you won't see any,have to take the box apart and see,check your hoses going thru the firewall to see if there leaking.

Is there a certain type of antifreeze I need to use for my 2003 Dodge Stratus


Many believe that most brands will give you very similar protection. What is very important is that you are aware not to use full strength anti-freeze. You can buy pre-mixed if you don't want to mix the anti-freeze and water yourself.
Most recommend about 50% anti-freeze, and 50% water. be sure to check the instructions on the bottle.

I hope this helps you.

How much will it cost to have my water pump replaced in my 2000 Alero. I am getting a quote of over $1,000.00 dollars because of the position the water pump is placed.


Your 2000 Olds Alero should have the 3400 V-6 engine...the water pump sells for about $45. The change out does not require the removal of any major components...(ie engine mounts etc.) You can loosen the serpentine belt to gain full access to the water pump bolts...Yes you will lose some anti-freeze and need to refill after replacing the pump...antifreeze $8.50 per gallon...recommend you use antifreeze "Good for All Models" as it has proven to be the best for longevity...Hope this helps...Your estimate is way to high...A shop will mark up the part slightly, and charge for labor...This job should be completed in less than 1 labor hour...$55. to $75. per hour depending on your location...PLEASE shop around if you cannot do this one by yourself:)

Where do put the antifreeze at?


under the hood you will see a plastic tank with a black lid.. it should have a coolant word or symbol.. this is where you add water and antifreeze mix, depending on your region as to the percentage of water and antifeeze

Warning light?


That is the low coolant level indicator. Check the coolant level in your radiator and or reservoir. Add a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water. If you want to get an owners manual go here and sign up. http://www.gm.com/gmownercenter/gm/?campaignId=&vin=

Car is leaking antifreeze and over heating even though there is antifreeze in the reservoir and is smoking after I turn car off. I bought a bottle of stop leak for radiator's and even added that and it...


the water pump is what pumps the anti-freeze half of anti-freeze is water so its called a water pump. but to me it sounds like theres something slugging up your radiator theres a small drain on the side if nothing comes out then its clogged, if it does then i would agree with your friend about the pump hope this helps :)

Heater immediately fogs all windows and there is a sweet odor in the cab of 2003 Buick Rendezvous, defroster works fine, but will not clear the windows after heat is put on


Sounds like a possible heater core failure(hole in it) the smell indicates to me the coolant(anti-freeze) is leaking into the passenger compartment.
Check the carpet in front of the front passenger seat for moisture, this would confirm heater core leak.
Good luck !

My 2003 olds alero reservoir leaks


Your cooling system needs to be pressure checked to see where the leak is. certain auto parts stores rent out a pressure checker. make sure you have the cooling system full before doing the pressure test. check to see if you have a radiator cap and fill the system that way instead of using the resevoir
