My heater is working and im loosing a lot of water but have no leaks


Check the thermostat. It keeps the cooling water in a small closed circuit till the engine is warm. Then it should open to send the water to the radiator and the heating system.

My heater blows cold air only, its worked all this time up until now. 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse, it also leaks water under the driver seat when I use the a/c. please help


It sounds like the heater matrix leaking,usually the dashboard has to come out to get to it.keep an eye on your engine water level too as its the same water and coolent that runs the a/c.if its leaking into the car then you risk over heating the engine.

My 99 alero v6 is over heating not leaking ight mite be hoses or thermostat . or head gasket but when it overb heats the smoke comes from the top of the engine


REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.IF CAR OVER HEATING WHILE IN MOTION.MORE LIKELY ITS THE THERMOSTAT,LOW COOLANT IN RADIATOR OR COOLANT SYSTEM,BAD WATER PUMP,WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE IS LEAKING, WATER PUMP NEEDS REPLACING.CHECK ENGINE OIL,IF OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE YOU HAVE LEAKING HEAD GASKET.IF CAR IN PARK AND OVER HEATS WHILE IN A LONG TRAFFIC LINE OR.BANK DRIVE THROUGH COOLANT FAN NOT TURNING ON, BECAUSE THE ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR FAULTY.CODE SCAN CAR FOR FAULTY COOLANT FAN RELAY OR FAULTY PCM. CHECK COOLANT FAN FUSE, AND HOT WIRE THE COOLANT FAN TO MAKE SURE ITS WORKING.IF COOLANT FAN DONT WORK WHEN HOT WIRED. COOLANT FAN NEEDS REPLACING. REPLACE BOTH RADIATOR HOSES, REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.BUY NEW COOLANT ADD 50/50 WATER AND COOLANT.IF ENGINE OIL HAS ANTIFREEZE IN IT.REPLACE ENGINE OIL AND OIL FILTER TO KEEP FROM LOCKING UP THE ENGINE.GET CAR FIX.DONT KEEP DRIVING IF IT KEEP OVER HEATING,ENGINE DAMAGE WILL OCCUR.I HOPE INFORMATION I GAVE YOU WILL FIX PROBLEM.PROBLEM COULD BE LEAKING RADIATOR HOSES BUT CHANGE THERMOSTAT THATS FIRST THING I WOULD CHANGE BECAUSE IF IT CLOSED, ENGINE WILL OVER HEAT AND CRACK CYLINDER HEAD OR CRACK PISTON, COOLANT NEED TO CIRCULATE THROUGH THE ENGINE TO TAKE AWAY THE HEAT FROM ENGINE.

Keeps overheating


Hello,

if your car keeps over heating, then it means the fan blowing the radiator is weak or might not be working at all.

Also, your water pump might be damaged, which can cause it to leak water. Put water into the radiator and check under the car to observe if there would be any leak of water.

Make sure the above is checked and fixed because thing overheating problem can damage your gasket which can make your can engine to knock.

Water as to be leaking from somewhere which is making the car overhear frequently.

Good luck.

The coolant is getting hot causing the engine to overheat.


This could have several causes. Is the coolant tank full? Is the coolant relatively fresh and a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze?
Does the heat gauge jump up to hot and then fall back rapidly at some point or just rise and keep climbing? If so, it is the thermostat. Is there a leak evident under the car? If so, it could be a bad water pump. The water pump has a small weep hole and if there is water at that point the pump needs to be replaced. If none of this is the cause, then it could be a plugged radiator or a faulty cap located on the radiator or the coolant overflow tank.

2002 kia rio 1.5, every time i drive the car i need to put about a quart of water in the radiator and fill the tank next to it. no water under the car. No water in the oil or trans. i cant find any leaks....


The water seems to leak out when the engine is running and so it is important to hve the test done when the engine idles.
So fill up and lett it idle to checck if the fault appears.
It is possible that the radiator has got a microscopic leak and is steams out at some stage for sure.
Once confirmed you wilI have to get teh radiator checked with a pressure test. check the bandages of the hose to water pump/engine.
Also the last point if the engine is heating up to oerflow off when it is running and at stops.

All my antifreeze is gone no heat


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
