I have a 99 Explorer 4.0 SOHV V6. I'm loosing radiator fluid but I cannot find a leak. It still runs fine, for a car with 312,000 miles. Could it be a head gasket? I would think it would run badly


a slow leak will not make the engine run poor, at least not a first. another spot hard to detect would be the heater core, behind the dash. when these leak you can sometimes smell it, kind of a sweet smell from the heater/ a/c dash vent area

I have a water leak. the hoses all seem good as does the "weep hole" on the water pump. The oil and trans fluid look normal and the car runs fine. The only thing I see is below the alternator...


Not all water pumps leak from the weep hole, if the water pump casket becomes worn then it will leak from behind the water pump. You can also have a leak coming from the thermastat housing. To find out exactly have a pressure test performed on your car.

I am having a problem with antifreeze smell and leak. I can't see where the leak is coming from but I do see spots on the ground. It does not over heat but it does have a sent of pancake syrup once heated....


LEAK COULD BE COMING FROM RADIATOR.WHEN YOU FIRST START VECHICLE UP IN MORNING LET ENGINE IDLE TO GET UNTIL THERMOSTAT OPEN AND COOLANT PRESSURE BUILD UP. TURN ENGINE.OFF. RAISE HOOD YOU WILL SEE LEAK. THE COOLANT PRESSURE WILL PUSH OUT ANTIFREEZE.LOOK FOR LEAKS AROUND TOP RADIATOR HOSE AND LOWER RADIATOR HOSE.LOOK ON SIDES RADIATOR AND LOOK BELOW RADIATOR AREA WHERE COOLANTS FANS LOCATED RADIATOR CORES WILL LEAK AND LOOK AROUND WATER PUMP + BYPASS HOSE + CHECK HEATER HOSES TO HEATER CORE THAT GOES THROUGH BACK LOWER FIRE WALL.

I just discovered a small coolant leak underneath my 2000 Rodeo. What could this be from? It seems to be coming from an area behind the engine.


check the heater lines which run behind the engine
the rubber hoses may need to be replaced or the heater core is starting to leak also check in the top of the engine to see if there is antifreeze up on to could be a radiator hose or thermastat gasket

HOW TO CHANGE THERMOSTAT ON THE V-6


First make sure engine is cool.
-Put drain pan under car, coolant will run out.
-Remove the TOP radiator hose that runs to the metal thermastat housing. Coolant will now be running out, try and direct it to the drain pan below.
-Remove the thermastat housing, BEFORE removing the thermastat make sure you TAKE NOTE at how it is situated in the casting.
- Take the thermastat housing and run a wire brush on the flat spot were the old gasket material is.
-Both mating sides of the thermastat housing MUST BE PERFECTLY CLEAN. There can not be any old gasket material left.
-Insatll new thermastat.
-Put a very light amount of PERMATEX orange high temp. silicone on BOTH sides of the new gasket.
-Put a small amount on bolt threads also.
-Now install thermastat housing, and bolts.
-Tighten bolts down a little at a time, alternating between the two, unitl till they are tight.
-Install the radiator hose, and tighten hose clamp.
-Remove radiator cap, pour in coolant, until it sits just below the radiator cap neck. This may take a little time as the system has some air in it.
-Install the radiator cap. Make sure you radiator overflow tank is filled properly.
-Remove the drain pan, make SURE ALL the tools use used are secure, and out of the engine bay.
-Start engine, and place your heater control to 'HEAT"
-Let engine run until the top radiator hose is hot, which means you thermastat has opened.
-Keep watching the engine temp AT ALL TIMES, we wnat to make sure there is no air in the system.
-Inspect for any leaks. Now when the top radiator hose is hot make sure the hose clamp is tight.
Please let me know how it goes.

We have a 2000 deville that started leaking coolant. we replaced the thermastat and it continues to leak coolant. it wont overheat as long as we keep the coolant in it. it leaks alot more when the car is...


check condition of radiator,radiator & heater hoses,look for spots wet w/ coolant.look more or less straight up above where coolant puddles on ground.engine block is equipped w/'freeze plugs' that sometimes corrode & leak.washing suspected area of leak with an engine degreaser product may aid in locating source of leak.
