Seem to be losing coolant cant see leak now engine runs rough

Sounds like a leaking head gasket. The coolant could be leaking into a cylinder and is being burned out the exhaust.

Losing there a water drain pipe that comes from the heating system

If you are not seeing a coolant leak on the ground, and you are adding coolant every week, chances are the engine is burning it out the tailpipe. That would be from a leaking head gasket or other internal problem with the engine.

I had the same problem on a 2002 Alero V6. I found the coolant was leaking at the intake manifold on the left front of the engine. I tightened the intake bolts (which were very loose) and solved my coolant leak problem.

there are some coolant heater hoses right above the exhaust manifolds check those, also check engine oil for discoloration due to coolant contamination. may have moisture on dipstick, oil may look like a chocolate shake texture. if so then most likely internal intake gasket leakage.the best way to check for hose leakage is to pressure test the coolant system if possible.

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

Slight sqeaking that comes from engine..sounds maybe like a wet belt..then goes away after driving a bit

it could be your alternator belt but I suggest you check all your belts you might need to tighten or replace them

White cloud of smoke through tailpipe

well I'd say that coolant is definitely leaking into the combustion chamber, albeit at a slow rate (for now). It could be anything from a blown head gasket to a cracked block or head. I'd get it to a shop as soon as possible and not drive it any more than need be until that point.

This may be the first sign that your water pump is failing. First sign is a leak. Crawl on your back under car if you can see if you can see it coming from front of engine near a pully that would turn your water pump. There is a "weep hole" it may be driping from.
