If it is the water pump the water will be coming from the front of the engine. If it is the heater core it will be coming from the firewall area and you may even have water (coolant) leaking into the passenger compartment on the passenger side floorboard.

Have a 1995 Honda passport and is leaking coolant. Have to put it in almost every time I drive and can't go far without over heating. Coolant seems to be leaking on passenger side mostly over tire


Check the Heater hoses for a pin hole. If there is no coolant on the hoses. Check the water pump. Let the car warm up,than take a flash light look a the water pump. there is hole in the water pump that will starter leaking when the packing is bad in the pump. If you see coolant coming from the hole change out the water pump.

My heat quit working&now im having to had water to everyday


Heat not working is either a sign of a bad thermostat or bad water pump. Since you have to add coolant I would also imagine you have a major leak. Try to verify where the leak is coming from. Heater cores can also fail but you would have coolant in your car on the passenger side floor and you would notice the smell of antifreeze. Do not drive your car until you fix this. This will destroy the engine in no time!

Can a bad water pump cause other things to not work properly? like the heat? and will it over heat?


Yes That is exaxtly what will happen, If the water pump is not pumping the antifreeze throught the system then not enough hot water will get to the heater core to give you heat inside the cabin and also not enough hot water will get to the radiator to get cooled off thus the overheating. Hope this helps.

Thermostat?


It actually sounds to me like you're low on coolant. My Jeep leaks coolant and whenever it gets low the temp gauge will go real high and then drop, and the heater doesn't work well. This is because the cooling system of your car is supposed to be a closed system, full of coolant and no air. When coolant leaks out, the space it used to occupy is now occupied by air, which does not transfer heat well. When 'air' is passing through your cooling system, no heat can be transferred from your engine to the heater and radiator, resulting in a hot engine and no heat at the heater. Then when a pocket of water passes through the system, the temperature gauge quickly falls as the water absorbs the heat from the engine. The hot water that cools the engine is where the heater gets it's heat from as well, so when water passes through the heater core, the heater works, but when it's filled with air, it doesn't.

Hot water runs through the heater core regardless of whether or not your thermostat is open or closed. That's why your heater works in the winter even before the engine is at normal operating temperature. The fact that the heater stops working is a good sign that the thermostat is probably not the culprit.

As for the water pump. If the water pump was bad, your temp gauge would go into the red and stay there. Water pumps generally don't work intermittently. Either it's good and ot works, or it's bad and it doesn't.

However, if you are in fact low on water, as I suspect, it means you probably have a leak somewhere. The leak could be in the water pump housing gasket, so depending on where you take it for repairs, they may try to sell you a new water pump anyhow. So just beware of that.
