Better keep some coolant or water in trunk--u need a good inspection to see if engine block rusting away or damaged--the leak cud be comin from radiator/hoses but appears in rear

2000 ford explorer loosing coolant


Unfortunately this will be kind of hard but, it sounds like you may have a blown head gasket depending on where on the passenger car it's leaking? Drive the car get it hot. Leave it running get out and pop the hood. Start looking for leaks. Use a powerful flashlight to help look. If it doesn't leak while you're driving and only after the car is shut off then I'd say you're creating a vacuum in the coolant system, change your coolant cap at that point.

Coolant dripping from vacuum pump on a 1997 ford explorer.


What you describe sounds like the heater valve. It is used to shut off coolant flow to the heater core when the heater is not turned on. If it is leaking, replace it.

My 1996 ford explorer was running fine today. I came home and parked and then returned to find a puddle of coolant. I filled the radiator with water and the reserve with water. I ran the engine for...


make sure the engine is fully warmed up (check the temp gauge and feel the top hose from the radiator to the engine) that hose should be HOT and it you should NOT be able to calopse it-it should feel hard. If you do not have a leak under these conditions, you probably just have an overfull surge tank and it 'puked' out some fluid. If you top radiator hose is NOT hard after the engine is fully warmed up, you have something wrong-it could be as simple as a radiator cap that is not sealing properly, or a leaky hose, an intake manifold leak, or an internal leak in the engine (don't rule out a leaking radiator, it has end tanks that can and do leak).

sounds like the thermostat gasket is leaking. Might as well change the thermostat and gasket at the same time. make sure the hose clamp is tight sometimes it needs to get tightened up. could be lealking from the hose and running down.

My radiator (1996 Ford Explorer) is leaking at the bottom. No problem with heating or cooling or running hot. Just steady drip


You can have it repaired at a radiator shop, or replaced with a new one. Are you sure it's the radiator that's leaking, sometimes it's the water pump or a hose that drips down onto the radiator. It can be difficult to locate due to air circulation of the fan and driving which spreads the leaking fluid around. I assume u top off the coolant often, since u say there are no issues w/ it overheating or running hot. If this is the case, the leak will eventually get worse, and adding coolant constantly gets expensive. Good luck, let me know what u decide to do, or if u have any other questions. Curt

Coolant leaking from rear of engine where the passenger side head and intake meet the block.The engine seems to run fine. is there anything under the intake that could be damaged or do you think its a head...


That would be a head gasket leak. The motor will run fine there min. change white smoke from exhaust but min. On newer cars the check engine light will engage

The problem is that your oil and anti freeze are mixing not a good thing. Good luck .

No heat and leaks antifreeze


you're on the right track. grab a flash light and crawl under your truck to look for trails left from coolant leaks. if this is happening only when you turn your heater on, but the engine runs fine and there's no leak any other time, it's either you're heater core, or just the hoses going to it. look above the exhaust pipes, all the steam rolling out from under the hood is the coolant hittling hot exhaust or the hot engine.
