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.

Why the water not circulating throw radiator

If your water is not circulating you can only have one of two problems. Either your thermostat is stuck shut and needs to be replaced or your water pump has gone out and needs to be replaced. I would start with the thermostat because it is cheaper and easier to get to. I hope this helps you out and if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

Two thing's one when i turn on my heat i don't get heat. Two i am alway's putting water in it. I just bought it

Hi having no heat would suggest the thermostat is stuck closed and will need replacing, how ever the really bad news is that if you dont see any water leaking onto the floor or around the engine then this points towards head gasket failure, the thermostat failing would have caused the engine to over heat and this would have caused the head gasket to fail.

Have a good look for a leak as this is the cheapest solution, make sure you check all hoses and rad for signs of water leaking, if you find no signs then the only other way you could lose water is via the head gasket, if you cant see water leaking then it can only be going into the engine, either into the oil or being burned out through the exhaust.

check you oil level stick for signs of a white substance if you have this then the water is getting into the oil via head gasket if the oil looks fine then the chances are the water is being burned off in the cylinder.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

that is not an idler pully that is the power steering pully if you feel through the holes in the pully you will feel the 13 mm head bolts that hold the pump to the block remove those bolts the pump will drop down and you can then remove the water pump also you have to remove the studs using the inverted torx end on the stud to unscrew it then the mount will come out
