If a freeze out plug feel out the antifreeze would run out as fast as you put it in.If this is the Quad4 style motor with the water pump housing betwween the motor and the firewall it is most likley in that area . the water pump seals are known to be a problem with this engine.

Why would antifreeze leak on right side of the engine in a 2001 hyundai elantra?


There is nobody online that can tell you where your antifreeze is leaking from. If the hoses are not leaking, it could be anything from a leaking radiator, to a bad water pump, a breach in the head gasket, or a hole in a freeze plug. You simply need to LOOK to see where it is leaking from. That cannot be done over the internet.

Steam from antifreeze coming from right side of engin


I would check the hoses in that area. It maybe the the water pump bearing shaft seal. There is usually a small drain hole towards the bottom of the pump, that will leak anti-freeze when the seal goes bad. With an inspection mirror, you may be able to see if anti-freeze is leaking from the pump.

Is there a way to know wheither its the water pump or a hose if you car is losing antifreeze? The car doesnt seem to be leaking when it is idle in the parking spot but when i come home frome a ride the...


it could easily be burning the antifreeze through a bad head gasket. if when warmed up the upper hose is quite stiff indicating the system is under pressureand you shut it off,even waiting until the radiator fan comes on and then right away turning of the key,wait and see iff anything runs out.the water pump would have to be looked at from below while the leak is ocuuring= reason must mechanics suffer a lot of burns. or with a sall extendable saft mirror. you could also loose antifreeze from a heater core leak but that would give a lot of steam on your windshield inside in the cold weather,or the carpet would be wet inside the car

Soft plug at the back of the engine is leaking, what causes this?


you engine has about 10 freeze plugs,there were created to be pushed out by ice if your antifreeze wasn't strong enough and froze inside the engine,that way the ice didn't crack the block when it expanded.
what causes freeze plugs to leak is the erosion affects from the antifreeze we use today,when they tell you to change your antifreeze every couple of years,the freeze plugs take another shot of strong antifreeze again,they just rust up on the inside of the engine until they get a rust hole in them

I have a 1994 Honda accord ex. It is leaking antifreeze


If your antifreeze is leaking into your engine oil, it will destroy the engine quickly. Check the level of both. But...you need to get a pressure gauge on it to apply pressure to the cooling system to see where the coolant is going first. White smoke is a sign of coolant in the engine oil.

I get a smell of antifreeze when I put the outside


Firsdt check the radiator cap thats it tight , then check for any anti freeze visible on the engine, then check under the car for any leaks. Is the smell of anti freeze inside the car ? , check the heater core you may have a leak there. the newer heater cores are aluminum and certain anti freezes, are extra acidic , which causes the anti freeze to eat at the heater core causing leaks, it maybe be a pin hole leak in the heater core ,causing the smell.
