The water pumps tend to slowly leak on these, it may be leaking slowly, usually it leaves a coolant residue on the front of the engine and near the front of the oil pan. It is temp sensitive, usually leaks cold and stops leaking when warm

Engine light blinking and anti freeze every where

The engine light is probably telling you the engine is heating up. It can be a simple broken hose, water pump, or radiator problem. Sometimes it is in the heater core hoses too.

There are some tests that can be done with a tool called a Radiator pressure tester. You may be able to borrow one from the Tool Loaner programs at big autoparts stores like Autozone. If you add water it can freeze if all is not removed.

Water is your cheapest test substance, but you can use antifreeze if you catch and recover it. Using the test tools I suggested will quickly reveal the leak source.

Two final things. Limit the pressure in the system to 14 or so lbs and observe the FREEZE plugs for leaks on the sides of the engine.

A slow leak can be driven a short distance to a repair shop if you start with a full Radiator.

Please rate my info.

How do i know if the intake manifold is the problem with my 2001 taurus

Have you noticed any antifreeze in the oil..Its got to be going somewhere..If its going through the intake,,then the antifreeze will be steaming out the exhaust or end up in the oil...You really need to have in pressure tested and look for the leak..Can you smell it??? It will have a sweet smell around the engine compartment...Autozone may have a pressure tester you can rent ,,or they may be able to test it for you

have your cooling system pressure tested, that should give a place to start as to where the leak is and how much it is going to cost to have the problem fixed

Water dripping right front underneath

Is what the liquid plain water or coolant (water mixed with antifreeze). touch and smell the liquid, no smell = water, antifreeze smell and oily feel = coolant.
If plain water, could be Air Condition condensation dripping from condensation drain which is normal. (this drain is usually located near the center of the vehicle).
If coolant, could be leak(s) from: radiator, radiator hose, heater hose, water pump, engine freeze plug. A coolant system pressure test should show what is leaking.

Changed water hose on my car losing a little water cant find a leak when i open the water cap seems a lot of pressure wnen i open the cap even when its cold

It sounds like you have a Head gasket leak or a cracked Head or Block. Check your Sparkplugs for color and fouling. It can be in the early stages of failure and the Sparkplugs are holding up; or the leak is putting Antifreeze into the oilpan. Check the Dipstick. Somehow engine compression is getting into the water passages. Check exhaust for sweet smell while running and excess vapor which is actually steam.

There are several ways to find this type of leak. A Radiator pressure tester will show a drop in pressure. This will verify the problem. You will be able to find an external leak with this test. If you use a Chemical Tracer, the Pressure tester will force the Tracer into the crack. The Tracer is more reliable than depending on Antifreeze color to find the leak and will show up in the oil.

By checking the Sparkplugs for telltale signs first, on the V engines you may only have to remove 1 cylinder head instead of 2. This will save you time and money. If you have no luck in identifying which side is bad, both will have to be checked by removal.

There are products which claim to seal these leaks. The Radiator pressure can range from 14 to 21 PSI. Without engine compression of 140 to 180 PSI the sealers sometimes work. But if engine compression is getting into the Radiator you will be blowing out antifreeze through the overflow pipes.

You did nothing wrong in changing the Radiator hose. You just repaired the weakess link. Now that the hose is stronger the leak moved somewhere else. Good luck on this repair. The Tracer chemicals are available at Autozone, Oreillys and several other places.

Antifreeze leak comimg from where antifreeze enters engine

The antifreeze enters the engine through the water pump. If it's not a hose, the water pump is leaking. Have a mechanic pressure test the system.

Antifreeze leaks out as soon as added to engine. car shuts off as soon as all antifreeze leaks out. what could be wrong? when antifreeze leaks out so badly

Depending on the mileage & other facters unseen I would hesitate a guess! You may have a blown head gasket, A frost plug leak, a water pump leak. Have a rad pressure test done to ascertain the leak location, but you can first check the tail pipe for antifreeze smell, if you smell it you have a head gasket problem. Also check the oil dipstick to see if you have any traces of white residue, an indication of a head gasket leak. I hope this helps & good luck!

When the engine is cool, check the fluid level in the radiator. If low add 50/50 solution of water and antifreeze. Do not continue to drive your car until this is fixed or you could cause a lot of damage to the engine.
