You have to do detective work, use a mirror and trouble light to see blind spots, have someone pour water in the rad while locating the leak

What 's make the water to leak from the engine when filing up the radiator

The first thing to do is look straight up from where the water is dripping on the ground, on the top part of the motor or radiator, sometimes it is easy to see where the water is coming from and sometimes it hidden. After this start checking the hoses for water, also when filling the radiator, it can be going out an overflow, running down because of filling the radiator to fast. There is probably (maby not) a vent screw on the thermostat housing, which would need to be opened turning it counter clockwise a couple turns to let air out of the system while you are filling the radiator. When liquid starts coming out around that screw ,,tighten the screw back. If water is coming from the end of the motor on the passenger side and you can't tell exactly where, the water pump is located on this end of the motor and can leak out slow or fast or more when you are driving. This is a general idea of what to check first and there is a lot of possibilities. Try to pinpoint the area at least where you think the water is coming from. It can have a leak in the radiator, thermostat housing, freeze plug, head gasket, bad radiator cap and more. Those water pumps do go bad.

My ford windstar is leaking antifreeze fast, what could be the problem? and can i fix it

If the antifreeze is leaking fast, then the most probable cause can be a hole or split in one of the coolant hoses. It is also possible for the radiator or water pump to have a leak. If you cannot see the leak when you inspect under the hood, then you may have to take the vehicle to your service repair shop where they can lift the van on a hoist to inspect underneath and they can pressurize the system to locate the coolant leak..

Radiator fluid leaking from back of the motor

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

You may have worn out hose which can cause the coolant leak. I strongly suggest that you replace the hose to resolve the issue. The hose is surely secured by clams so you will need pliers to squeeze the **** then move it to let loose.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

2001 Cheverolet Express - with heater on, water sound in dash

Ask mechanic to put green anti freeze into your water and use a radiator pressure tester to find the leak while the car is stationary.The pressure tester is a bit pricey to buy for a one off test so radiator repair workshop probably best place to get test done.Green anti freeze is easy to see when it leaks,like a tracer dye.Good luck

Leaking Coolant

I believe the other one is underneath the motor mount, which means you will have to remove the mount of you need access to it..

Suggest you check your engine oil, it should be either light brown if just replaced, and black if you have over 30K miles on it.

If the oil is brown like in color, maybe you have an intake manifold leak and anti freeze is getting into the motor oil (Bad Bad) Check for leaks in the heater core inside the car and see if the rugs are wet.

Check radiator for discoloration in the fin areas and tank areas. Finally check your radiator cap, maybe its defective and you loose antifreeze through the overflow.

Water leak near transmission

freeze plugs checked they are fine all 3 of them. and nope the air conditioner isnt running. example: if i start it and let it idle it will leak visibaly but not a steady stream. after the motor starts to heat up the stream gets bigger and bigger but no gushing. oh and i forgot to mention the water is just water not other fluids in it. not to sound stupid but im not sure about which of the hoses are heater and radiator but we checked them all. there is a plate covering the face of the big end of the transmission and a pipe coming out of it and looks as if it is going into the motor. its leaking at the plate and entrance of the plate is what it seems like.
