Why radiator wont hold water


Is your antifreeze leaking on the ground in the front of the motor ? There are many different things to do to find the right answer to this question. 1 : pull the motor dipstick. If oil mixes with the water - antifreeze the dipstick will look milky. If it does not. And looks good. Then 2: with water in the radiator don't put antifreeze in it keeps wasting $$ til leak is found. 3 : start motor look from under the front of the water pump with a flashlight if you have a dripping from a weep hole in the water pump bottom behind the fan. If you can't find a leak shut off the motor. Feel the bottom of the water pump if there is a presence of water you'll need a new one. If not .4:if the motor is over heating or has been blowing antifreeze out of the overflow hose along the side of the radiator. If so the thermostat may be stuck. Much cheaper repair.

I saw aqua blue color solution under the car


blue, ran over a smirf?

front, rear, left ,right , center of car. surely you know that.?
i guess there is blue antifreeze, now from green,pink,yellow, orange and none clear.
its not brake fluid, so that is cool.
is car A/T or M/T auto or stick shift
what year, what model, ????

ill guess coolant and is a bad sign.
easy to find though
get motor hot, open hood, and bingo, at 14psi hot, coolant
will leak or even squirt, find it , just look, for 10 mins.
it will tell you , every time.
unless leaking from cab heater then it leaks
from the A/C condensate drain, pipe under car, that
pipe this always leaks pure water....

Locate AC drain line


ac drain pipes are on the passenger side front floor area (just about where your feet go) under car when cars heater core gets a hole in it lots of times antifreeze will leak inside car on floor try to get a small sample of fluid thats leaking out with a tissue or something (white In color) see what color fluid is ,see if fluid is slippery like oil or not (rub it between fingers)
Antifreeze= orange or green in color
Transmission oil = red or brown
motor oil = brown to black
washer fluid = Blue or drk orange
ac condesate= clear water (cold)

HI I OWN A PEUGEOT 206 1.8 IT SUDDENLY HAS STARTED LEAKING AN ORANGE COLOURED FLUID FROM UNDERNEATH THE FRONT OF THE CAR BELOW ROUGHLY THE RADIATOR. NO WARNING LIGHTS ARE SHOWING AND THE CAR DOES NOT


Sounds like antifreeze. You may need a new radiator or may have a bad radiator hose going to it. See if you can trace down where it is coming from.

I just had a new radiator put in my 1999 chevy tracker but if I turn on the airconditioning you can smell the antifreeze and when you turn offf the air and the car there is coolant coming out under the...


A heater core leak typically fogs up the windshield and leaks inside on the floor. Pressure test the cooling system, and find the leak, sounds like it is in the engine bay and not heater core.

Advice on heater /airconditioning system 2002 grand cheroke. leaking between firewall underneath glove box around foam rubber seal


is it leaking clear water or oily green antifreeze? clear water is the condensation from the a/c system leaking out where it shouldn't. the tube leading from the case to the engine compartment could be clogged, leaves and stuff have a way of finding themselves in there. could need the rubber grommet replaced, i believe there was a TSB around this model year for that very thing.
if its green oil antifreeze, your heater core is leaking. the dash needs to be removed for this fix

Antifreeze appears to leak everytime I turn on the


it is most likely not antifreeze, but just condensation dripping from the HVAC drain. it is normal and unless it contains orange dex-cool coolant, is not a problem.

Antifreeze leak at lower raditor housing? antifreeze dripping down oilpan by dipstick tube and aircondition compressor only when hot.


you may have a water pump that is starting to fail. Look for the water pump that's driven by the fan belt. look at the housing of the water pump there is a relief hole that they drill in the casting and when the pump begins to fail it will drip out this hole. If that's where your leak is, it's time to change the pump.

Leaking antifreeze


could quite possibly be the water pump. There is a weep hole under the shaft, when the bearings go, the antifreeze leaks out at that point. Try checking w/ motor off using a small mirror to get a look under the water pump. If u see corrosion, or it's wet, get a new pump installed. Let me know what u find. good luck countrycurt0
