A water line, Is it a hose or a little pipe? Is it for water or oil? Either way, a radiator shop can fix it, they can solder it back together. But I've never seen a water line to the radiator, 2 hoses, and 2 transmission cooler lines at the bottom. Once you get away from the radiator, then you have a dozen water lines running all over the place. Hope this helps.

    The small rubber line on the top at the cap? It is the overflow, it should be going into the expansion tank. It takes out the excess fluids when the liquids expand, and then sucks them back in when it cools down. It is probably just cracked. Cut off about 1/2 inch and you should be all set. I didn't think there was another line on there, Hope this helps.

Cadillac cts radiator

it may be the hose itself, or the radiator, or a nearby line that lead from the radiator to a heater core, or a broken plug in an un-used port, or even a bad radiator cap - it depends where the water is actually coming from. is it coming from the hose or from where the hose connects to the radiator, or is it pouring down from somewhere else and just pooling under the hose.

Heater not getting hot

Sounds like the heater core is blocked and not circulating hot water. Uncover the heater core under the dash, little radiator. Get the vehicle to running temperature, turn the heater on and feel if the little radiator gets hot. If not then something is blocking the water circulation. Either the heater core is broken or the lines are plugged coming in or going out from it. Typically it is the core that is broken.

Check that the fan is working properly, whether it is electric or a belt driven fan. A car will overheat if the fan doesn't function as originally designed.

Temp line comes on and stays on

If it's flashing, it can mean it's overheating. STOP DRIVING. First Check the electrical connector, if it's plugged in, it should be ok. Next, pull the return line off the overflow and start the engine (with the engine cold) and the return line should almost immediately start flowing water, if not, your water pump is broken and not pumping and overheating your engine.

There is no radiator cap, the "overflow" is the radiator cap.

Freestar - Hit something in road. Liquid behind left rear tire. Look like coming from the "silver" pipe running there (or dripping on it.) No smell - looks and feels like water. Any ideas?

If u have A/c fitted then it could the water disposal pipe or water circulation to the radiator & back pipeline. Otherwise u might have hit the underside of the radiator...........sodeep

Oil lines going to radiator

There are no oil lines that go from the Oil Filter to the Radiator.

There are Transmission Fluid Oil lines that go from the Transmission to the Oil Cooler on the Radiator.  Plugging these, or not having them connected - will cause rapid transmission failure from overheating.

Lots of people even add additional tranny coolers.  Especially if they do much towing...  If the line is broken right at the radiator - it must be fixed.  If it is broken a little ways away - you can reconnect the lines using tranny fluid hoses.

Water radiator problem

When it does not pump the water at all the engine brakes after few miles.

Check if there is any leak in the water lines, or in the radiator.

If there is no leak, that means that the water is being vapourized inside the engine because of a defective head gasket.
When this happens you often can also get white smoke coming back from the exhaust.

You probably need to replace the head gasket.
