Starting from the top down dab every joint and seam with kitchen paper towel. Between each dab and press examine the kitchen towel for dampness. It is vital that you find out exactly where the leak is coming from. You could be lucky and the leak might be fixed buy an extra half turn on a jubilee connector on a hose union or a quarter turn on the water pump or thermostat housing bolts. If the leak persists you may require a new gasket . If the leak is from the water pump shaft seal behind pulley you will see a tell tale stain on the 'chin' of the pump body. This will require a replacement of the pump.

I have water pouring out from the top of the engine block, but not from the water pump. Can't see exactly but looks like the leak is behind and above the water pump. Can you tell me the most l


If its not from the water pump or hose it is most likely from a rusted out welch plug , This happens if the coolant is not replaced when needed . To do a good repair replace them all . For a bit extra money find brass plugs, end of problem . replace with good coolant.

You need to take belt off and loosen the bolt,then you can align the holes up.Is there some type of sealant between the water pump and housing,if so,then it will be stuck,you may have to remove water pump and reinstall,if you move it,it may cause it to leak.Check this video out.

Leaking coolant but cant find the leak?checked the radiator and pipes but still cant find it!could it be something to do with the air con unit? only leaks when started and will drain the water out of the...


There is absolutely no way possible that the air con unit is going to cause an engine coolant "leak". The air conditioner can cause the engine to overheat if the fans are not working properly, but you will see coolant coming out of the radiator cap if it is overheating.

To find a coolant leak you just have to look for it while it is leaking. If you can see it dripping out on the ground, then you should be able to follow it up to see where it is coming from. Cracks in the plastic radiator tanks are common in all Honda vehicles. These cracks can have the characteristic of only leaking after reaching a certain temperature. You will probably have to remove the plastic shrouding from under the vehicle to see many of the leaks that can be coming from the front radiator area.

Water pumps can also leak at only certain temperatures. Sometimes they can fool you also because there are channels on the back of the pump that will direct coolant away from the water pump/ timing belt area in the event of a leak. It can look like it is leaking from the side of the engine that is away from the water pump. Again, you have to LOOK to see where it is originating from.

If you are losing coolant, more than likely you have a leak somewhere. a small leak can be almost impossioble to find without putting the coolant sytem under pressure. Unfortunately, if you cant find the leak yourself you will probably have to take your vehicle to a shop. A prssure test will probably run you between 25.00 and 40.00 depending on the shop.

Water leak near front tyre on ford escort


Double check this by using a small container and catching some of what is dripping...If it is not green then it's your air conditioner condensation escaping as it's supposed to. If green then something important is leaking and you need to look further.

Water in passenger footwell of ford mondeo zetec 2001.


I had the same problem. Take note of black plastic trim piece that runs along the bottom of the windshield. On the passenger side there is a pan type attachment to this piece of trim; it can become detached from the trim. In this case it needs to be positioned under the lower lip of the windshield.
