If a coolant temp sensor is not working, the fans will not activate, and fluid will go overboard the reservoir, and the temp gauge should have an abnormal reading. Happened to my 1998 accord that the top plastic tank above the radiator had a small leak right where it meets the aluminum honeycomb. It leaked only when hot, and evaporated right away, leaving no traces. Start the car and let it idle for 5 min, and then open the hood and check if the fans are coming on, and if you can see bubbling coming from the radiator top assembly.

Does a 1999 Mercury Sable have a vacuum modulator?


it has to be going somewhere , check your radiator (why) because the radiator cools the tranny in lower radiator, when you park your car put down cardboard and look at it in the morning

Pinkish fluid from front of car


this sounds like coolant, as this car uses the pinkish radiator coolant, you may have a leaking radiator or a bad hose, you will need to pressure test the cooling system to find the leak, the only other fluid is the ****** fluid but thats more of a dark red color so i would say its the coolant thats leaking, these cars have radiator leak as they get old but again to be sure you would need to look at the radiator and maybe pressure test it to find the leak. good day

Smells like radiator fluid but its not running hot?


If you smell it in the cabin you probably have a leak in the heater core which is up under the dash. Look under the center portion of the dash on both sides and try pulling the carpet back in that area. Chances are you will find evidence of a small leak. Check all hoses for tightness that run along the firewall in the engine compartment as well.

91 accord lx overheating, leaking fluid but no smoke or steam? i have a 91 accord 180,000 miles awesome car but just now started over heating. no smoke or steam are coming out i don't know is that means...


the green colour will be antifreeze additive in the water, you should really trace the leak source as it is bound to continue or worsen without repair. You could try a product called CE-LIT which comes in little packets, looks like chopped up grass or silica - add to hot radiator and run at idle for several minutes, it is really good if you can find it where you live. I put a screwdriver thru the rad when fixing my number plate in the snow, huge leak ensued, ce-lit closed it within 5 minutes and I was able to drive off. Never leaked again either, if you cant find that one, get a similar one, but not the liquid leak sealers like barr's as they are ****.

Leaks small amount of coolant, but I don't see


Check the engine oil, see if the level is going up and what the condition is. you can take the oil cap off and inspect under it. if there is a milky fluid then the antifreeze is leaking in to your engine crank case which is bad for the engine bearing. The other thing to also check is the transmission fluid. make sure that its till bright red and not over filled to make sure it's not leaking in to your transmission through the transmission cooler which is apart of the radiator too. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to help.

96 suzuki vitara - radiator empties but no visible leak


Check the passanger side floor board for moisture this could indicate a bad heater core. Then I would check the engine oil and make sure its not milky looking (head gasket). make sure when you fill it let it run with the cap open with you looking into the cap to be sure is circulating and not vapor locked (air pocket)
hope this helps

Radiator leak


This radiator is plastic and aluminum it there is small leak on the plastic part it can be stopped with an EPOXY. However you must locate the source of this leak first so that you can solve it. If it leaking from the fins/vains on the radiator I would recommend that you replace radiator very simple to do. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
