The list is large of WHERE it could be, we could guess all day. Fill it with water and see if you can find out where. Heater hose? Radiator hose? radiator? water pump? freeze plug? Heater core?

My boyfriend has a 91 Toyota 4runner v6 SR5. He has replaced the radiator and thermostat. Also he has bled the coolant system several times. The truck is still losing coolant. If he drives the truck...

When engine completely cools remove coolant from overflow reservoir to the cold mark on the reservoir which is the lowest mark on reservoir. If you continue to loose coolant you may have busted block.

My 1999 blazer is leaking antifreeze. can't really tell from where but it does not always leak. most of the time it is over the weekend when I am not driving it.

You can buy or possibly rent a coolant system tester which pumps air into it to help locate leaks. Very simple to use. You just remove your radiator cap and replace it with the tester and pump it up to the PSI listed on your radiator cap and watch for leaks. I would pay close attention to the water pump and intake manifold gaskets. It could be something as simple as a loose radiator hose clamp. It is common for intake manifolds to leak and they expand when hot and contract when cool so the leak is more noticable after sitting. Look on top of the engine around your intake manifold and your heater hose for coolant or a chalky like residue which can form from coolant leaking. Your water pump has what is called a weep hole on it which will be located behind the pulley close to the shaft. You may need to use a mirror to see it. If coolant is leaking out of it the water pump will need replaced.

2000 Silverado leaking coolant from under the hood and I cant tell where its leaking from. Truck overheated while driving home and had problems pushing on gas to get home

You will have to check the coolant tank. If you cannot find it by looking around it, it will have to be removed. If you find that it has a leak in it, It will have to be patched or replace. Also check all of the connections to the coolant tank. It could be possible there is a leak in the connections.

Why is my 1999 jeep grand cherokee is leaking all of my coolant i replace thermostat and seal can it be my water pumpbefore it was doing that my heater wasnt blowing hot wat cant it b

Likely the heater isn't blowing hot because the coolant level is low. You need to look at everything...hoses, under the pump pulley, radiator, both sides of the engine from underneath and check the tailpipe for steam. No one can tell you what's leaking without looking at it. There are too many items that can leak. Look carefully and you will find the problem. When checking, look first with the engine cold and the cap removed. If you find nothing, put the cap back on and run it to build pressure and look again. (careful working near fan and can get hurt there)

So yea i have a low coolant light on again i replaced the intake manifold last year and sometimes the light would go on and off but the fluid remained in the reservoir.. so the light came on the other day...

Easy way to tell if the intake is leaking internally would be to check the oil level because typically if it is leaking it runs through the engine and down into the oil pan.If the oil level is higher then normal then the intake gaskets leaking is a good possibilty. Another suggestion is checking the color of the exhaust coming out the tail pipe.Normal exhaust is white/grayish color and not normally thick and coolant escaping out the exhaust is typically a heavy white smoke.In addition that kind of exhaust would indicate a head gasket leaking. If you don't see thick white exhaust but the oil level is high the intake is probably leaking again.

Coolant leaking,temperature too hot when stopped

sounds like your being ripped off if mechanic cant isolate and repair what is a simple problem.You will need to find a mechanic who has a pressure tester to isolate the leak and confirm that its leaking from that specific point not guess and replace at your expense every part of the water system.
