You have to find the reason for the leak. if it is a heater or rad hose clamp that is broken then replacing that would solve the problem. However it coud be leaking hoses, leaking water pump or faulty thermostat.

Couldn't fit 2 different hoses from different stores. so bought a hose slightly bigger it fit tightened clamps drove and it still leaked why does it still leak?


If your talking about a heater hose, maybe the heater core fitting is leaking? With old heater hose, at the heater core fitting, you use a utility knife and split the hose over the fitting and peal it off. Don't jerk on the hose, it may damage the hear core? Then you have to replace heater core.

What would be leaking under my radiator on the drivers side?


It sounds like your thermostat is stuck closed. Your thermostat also acts as a heater valve to let hot coolant go to your heater core to blow hot air if your thermstat is stuck close it prevents your coolant to run through your radiator to cool down and to blow hot air from your heater core. A way to check to see if your thermostat is working while its at operating temp feel the bottom and top radiator hose if your lower hose is cold and top is hot your thermo is stuck closed but be careful hoses might be very hot

How to flush heater core after stop leak was put into radiator


undo the both heater hoses at the engine fire wall
turn the heater control on
apply a garden hose at one of the hoses and flush through
do it both ways
Two things to consider
stop leak should only work at the area of the leak and circulate normally with the coolant so there should not be a blockage
second point is , if the heater core is blocked then flushing will hot clear it and it may need a new core
It is known that some stop leaks affect the coolant control tap of the heater so it may be that control unit that is the problem and not the core so keep that in mind before replacing the core

I have an1988 Chrysler fifth avenue. It has a miss, when you pull up to stop sign or red light it will stall out and die but starts right back up, sometimes back fire through carb if you hold gas throttle...


Check for a vacuum leak under the hood. Most heater and a/c systems rely on vacuum pressure to open and close doors and direct hot and cold air. The vehicle stalling could also be that vacuum leak. Look for a small diameter hard plastic hose. They always seem to dry rot, if it's bad it will fall apart when you move it. Best way to find a leak is to use a 2'-3' piece of water hose. Put one end against your ear to listen for vacuum leaks while the engine is running.

My heater blowing cool air want blow warm or hot air


check top and bottom hose for heat if the top hose hot and bottom hose cold the thermostats not opening,or you may have a leak from a hose or water pump, maybe only a small leak but that would cause the system to lose pressure and lose heat from your heater at worst the head gasket may have blown

I am not getting any heat in my car and it was warmed up. The tempature gage is rising high. What fluid is low? I also, have a leak of something on the passenger's side coming out of engine, it is clear...


Sounds like it's low on coolant. Check radiator. If low on coolant, heater may not get hot & temp gauge will read hot. The leak could possibly be a coolant leak..? Anti-freeze has a distinct odor when leaking from a hot engine. If that's the case, find the leak and have it repaired.

well it is 11 years old now so it could well be a rotten rubber water hose or a gasket showing its age,, try putting in some red food coloring in the rad that should stain where the water is leaking out of?

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive


Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but ....at your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

2003 Mercury Mountaineer with 4.6L is loosing coolant, no steam coming out of tail pipe or fluid leaking on the ground. The dealer thinks it intake manifold or head gasket. The hot oil light has come on...


dont know of any head gasket concerns, usually when the intake manifold leaks it either split and pours out or the heater hose fittings crack and leak. Check the hose connections at the intake and make sure none of the hose clamps have cracked and are leaking

Heater core leaks! temp in car interior fluctuates; HELP!


yup, its running to that point before it dripps off. you can bypass the heater core to stop the leaking, but you won't have heat. take the two heater core hoses ( two hoses connected at the fire wall on passenger side) and connect them together. you will need a fitting to connect them with.
