If you have the rear heat /air, check the passenger side fender area under the hood for the Aux Coolant Pump.

They eventually leak after so many years. This could be your problem. Roughly a $300 fix if you have it done.

Antifreeze dumping on passenger side. Will not go 2 miles without overheating and needing more antifreeze.

All GM cars from 1994 to on up the 3100/3400 engine is famous for bad intake gaskets. When the gasket goes you loose coolant by either externally outside the engine or internally inside the engine. Check the oil for overfull condition and it will look like bright orange or milkshake color. Also if you drove on it overheating or if its full and overheats right away you also blew a head gasket. A compression test will confirm this. If you replace with good gaskets with the metal and rubber type do not use the plastic cheaper version. Then the intake gasket leak will never happen again.

I will like to know if the antifreeze leak could be from the water pump if the leak comes from the bottom of the car and not from the radiator

ALL antifreeze leaks will be seen coming from the bottom of the car. Yes, it COULD becoming from the water pump. But then again, it could be coming from an intake manifold gasket, a heater hose, a throttle-body heater hose, a freeze plug, a timing cover, a heater control valve, etc..
To find out where it is leaking from, you must follow the antifreeze trail UP from where you see it leaking. Antifreeze leaks ALLWAYS travel downhill. Sometimes they can be deceiving also. I have seen intake manifold leaks at the front of the engine run all the way to the back of the engine and make it look like a rear freeze plug is leaking. Again, you must follow the trail to find the actual source.

1999 ford expedition. smells like antifreeze in the cab, worse when I turn on air conditioner ?? I saw a leak today at the firewall. I drove it about 5 miles stopped the car and it hasnt leaked...

This is likely the heater core leaking. Once it turns cold you will have foggy windows too.

When the heat is turned off the antifreeze stops flowing through the heater core, once it was all gone the leak would have stopped until the next time you need heat.

My car is overheating big time, the only way it stops is when i put antifreeze in the car. But then the car leaks antifreeze when i put it in. And it starts all over again.

where is it leaking from. the answer is fix the leak. a car is not suppose to leak antifreeze and you will destroy your engine if you run it hot, so , fix the leak.

2000 chevy suburban has a cooling system leak what kind of sstop leak do you recommend

I try not to use radiator stop leak to fix any leak, the stop leak will tend plug up the cooling journals and jackets through out the engine, radiator and heater core. If you are going to use any stop leak just to help you get to a repair shop, use just plain black kitchen pepper. The black pepper will plug up the hole where the leak is coming from and when it's time to repair the cooling system, the pepper will clean right out with just a simple coolant flush. Locate the leak and have it repaired, if it's the water pump leaking through the weep hole. Your going to have to have the water pump replaced, and if it's the heater core that is leaking. That's going to have to be repaired, and at worst, if the intake manifold gasket is leaking antifreeze in to the engine. That's bad and need to be repaired as soon as you can, the Antifreeze is corrosive to the engine's bearing and it's know to have the engine's bearing to go bad in 3000 miles of antifreeze mixed in with the engine oil. Good luck and hope it's just a small leak through a hose clamp or the radiator.

A repair shop said it was the waterpump and

You need to look it over and find the source of the leak.
Coolant loss will cause an overheat and every time that happens you risk an expensive job including total engine loss. Obvilousy no one here can see your engine and tell you where the leak is. If you don't do your own work, have the shop that did the work check it over. Normally shops give at least a 90 day guarantee on their work and therefore if the pump is faulty or there was a problem with the install, they should correct it.

92 Toyota Camry, antifreeze leaking no leak found

have you had the undercarriage inspected for white stains from coolant, rust stains if your system is corroded? How many miles? has the water pump ever been replaced, that would be my guess, water pumps leak while the eng is running and the hot engine evaporates the coolant, so in many cases none on the ground. Also have the system pressure tested by a shop and put on a rack to check for signs of leaking under the car.

Overheated, added antifreeze and water to get home (90 miles). got home and antifreeze was dry again. There doesn't appear to be a leak though??? Thoughts? Suggestions? It's a Dodge Caravan Sport 2000 with...

Fill it up.. Let it get warm parked.. Once hot - shut it off.. if there are any noticable leaks - you wil see it now - while the pressure is up..
If no leaks - could be a head gaskit..
If its a head gaskit & your losing that much coolent - you should see steam or fluid out the exaust...
