My car is overheating and using up the water in engine coolant reservoir when i refill

There are a couple of things that make a vehicle overheat. Your thermostat could be stuck closed not allowing the coolant to circulate, or your waterpump has gone out. Its possible your radiator has clogged up from minerals and or rust from the water.

Make sure you don't have a leak or a bad hose. The lower hose sometimes will get weak from oil contamination and the water pump will actually **** it closed.

When the car is warm feel your top radiator hose and see if it is cool. That would indicate a stuck thermostat. If it is hot then put on a pair of gloves and squeeze the hose, you should feel the pulsing of the waterpump and the water flowing by (like a garden hose). If not that is a good indicator of a bad pump.

Coolant leak - 1981 Ford F-150 straight 6cyl., no AC

from what you describe I am sure it is the water pump that is leaking, check the pump bearing for play to confirm

How do I change the water pump on a 2001 Grand AM GT

Remove the serpentine belt from the water pump pulley. Remove the lower radiators hose's upper clamp at the overflow tank. Drain as much of the coolant as you can. Saving the liquid in a drain pan can be a good idea. Use a ratchet with a 10mm socket to remove the heater line off the top of the water pump. Remove the bolts holding the water pump body. Remove the old pump and clean surfaces completely. Install new pump with new gasket and silicon sealant. Reverse procedure to complete, Refill radiator via fill tank, check for leaks. Continue checking overfill tank for a few days.

I have 1991 pontiac grand prix ,,, my local mechanic said i have or the car has a poor or no water circulation. I bought a new water pump and a mem cam.But the situation remain the same. What else can i...

Most likey a bad thermostate or a plugged raiditor, put the radiator ans have it hot tanked and cleaned. also check upper and lower hoses to see if the have colasped in the center, I believe that year may have had a problem with to small of head gasket water holes but don't remember for sure you could ask your local machine shop for that answer but try the hoes firs then hot tank the radiator, if you pull the radiator yourself a radiator repair shok can do a flow test for you. Flow test costs $40.00 Hot tank and pressure test costs about $100.00

1999 Pontiac Grand Am with "lower intake leak"...What does this mean specifically? Would this mean the intake for the radiator, gasket, or valve?

Usually intake has to do with the induction system, as in intake manifold , The intake manifold can have several types of leaks, the intake can have a vacuum leak, oil leak, coolant leak or a combination of any of the before mentioned....hope this helps,

Car began overheating, so we added antifreeze and water. Then the next day, it all leaked out. Upper hoses appear to be ok. Are there lower hoses?

It should have a lower hose also. Or you could check around the water pump, they have a weep hole on it and they usually leak if the pump is bad.
