I am assuming this happens/ed when the a/c is running/has run. If so then I would say it is a clogged drain which is located under the car. It should be on the passenger side, more then likely you will need to jack the car up and look at the firewall and find the drain, with a small piece of wire or pipe cleaner clear the clog

Have a 1995 Honda passport and is leaking coolant. Have to put it in almost every time I drive and can't go far without over heating. Coolant seems to be leaking on passenger side mostly over tire


Check the Heater hoses for a pin hole. If there is no coolant on the hoses. Check the water pump. Let the car warm up,than take a flash light look a the water pump. there is hole in the water pump that will starter leaking when the packing is bad in the pump. If you see coolant coming from the hole change out the water pump.

Few days ago cavalier decided to empty coolant out of its tank and overheat. we since then took compressor off serpentine belt changed thermostat checked oil for water flushed system checked fan heater...


Water pump. The impeller can come loose from the shaft and not circulate enough coolant. These can throw you off, because when you remove the pump the impeller will be tight against the shaft. It is when they warm up they begin to slip. If the heater core is not leaking don't bypass it.

Coolant leaking from passenger's side of 98 chev cav.Running hot.


first make sure all the hoses are in good shape, if so, it would have to be the heater core or water pump, not sure if you mean it leaking in the floor on the pasengerside, if it is this is definitely heater core, if its leaking on passenger side under the hood its the water pump or a hose

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.

Little plume of white smoke coming from engine when idling only. Runs great and not overheating. Really bad smell coming through vents with AC on


A little white smoke is OK from 0-15 minutes of start up.

After warm up the condensation inside the exhaust pipe AND under the hood should be purged.

How many mile is on the engine?

A well care for engine should not have to worry about leaky (pin hole leak) head gasket until 120,000 miles.

The other sources of coolant leak is the freeze plugs.

DO NOT WAIT! Take 15-20 minutes out of your schedule and see where is it leaking on the idle.

it can be at


heater hoses
water pump
freeze plugs
and head gasket


I would start monitoring the coolant consumption by making the coolant reservoir tank.

Keep tab on oil level.

====

The common A/C air vent odor are

coolant leak (even pin hole leak) on the heater core.

KEEP CHECKING the center to passenger floor carpet for wetness and smell of coolant.

and/or

mold in side the air tube vent.
there is cleaner spray you can buy to keep the mold.

get a new coolant temperature sensor.

the orginal black ones are faulty.

make sure it is the green topped one.

also do a normal tune up with spark plugs, clean the maf, maybe replace coils packs.

If Your Fan is operating properly, along with Your defroster Meaning Your A.C. Pump is charged and engaging, I would have to take a look at Your heater-core to see if it may be leaking on to Your floor on the passenger side. Therefore causing more moisture in the car than can be evaperated under normal conditions... Hope this may Help!
