It sounds like you need a water pump. When the bushing in the water pump shaft wears out it makes a horrible grinding marbles together kind of sound and coolant leaks past the shaft seal.

I OWN A 1996 NISSAN QUEST GXE THAT'S BLOWING BLUE SMOKE FRONT FRONT DRIVER SIDE TIRE AND I CAN SMELL ANTI FREEZE INSIDE.. I JUST BOUGHT VEHICLE AS A COMMUTER.


Sounds expensive. Blue smoke usually means oil in the combustion chambers, from worn out rings. Anti-freeze inside means leaking hoses or heater core. Not sure where the driver-side tire comes into this, unless that is where the smoke is coming from, in which case that likely a problem with a seized brake caliper.

I'm leaking anti freeze out of what appears to be an overflow tube going up the side of my radiator coming off the drain plug.how do i fix this?


if it is a hose that comes from the drain point of the radiator, then most likley the drain is not tightened properly, or has dirt in it.

2000 3.4 v6. i replaced head and manifold gaskets water pump,thermostat.about a month after it would overheat,i would fill it with water ,it would be fine ,now months later it overheats all the time,fans...


It sounds like you have a clogged radiator. You need to flush it out . If it won't unclog you will need to replace it. Sometimes if you ever use stop leak in your radiator, you need to flush that out if you ever replace anti freeze or add more stop leak. Remove radiator cap and start car and let it warm up to operating temp. Fill radiator where you can see the fluid with cap off. While looking at antifreeze gently give the engine a little gas and see if the antifreeze circulates by going down. If it doen't then it is either water pump, thermostat or a plugged up radiator. Good luck.

Smells like anti freeze and smokes alot when given gas and also smokes when idleing under the airfilter on the passenger side of an 1990 supra yo


If there is white smoke coming out of that location, chances are that you have a heater core leak. Hot radiator fluid passes through 2 smaller radiator tubes to the heater core. Air from the fan is passed over the heat exchanger, and hot air blows out. White smoke = steam. You can block off the heater core tubes until you can get it replaced.

Has 105,000 miles, leaking anti-freeze. replaced


Yes....not a big deal. These things happen regardless of make or model...parts are not expensive...what all do you need to replace besides the heater core?

Leaking anti freeze


Sound like the tube that connects your heater core to the water supply from radiator. On Fords these tube are metal and very oftern rust out and need to be replaced. This is located behind and to the right (passenger) side of the engine.
