Question about 2001 Mazda Protege

2 Answers

Loosing coolant, but no drips on the ground at all. Where is it going? Changed the coolant holder, as thought it may have a crack, but the coolant is still disappearing. It is not leaking through any hoses as the ground is always dry?

You need to take the oil dipstick and see what color the oil is if it is milky color your piston rings are leaking or maybe main seal look on back side of motor side if real dirty oily wet also check your thermostat maybe leaking slowly on motor burning it off hope this helps where i would start

My coolant level is dropping about two cup fulls every couple of months,there is no coolant on ground just a small water drip on garage floor after about middleways underneath engine after driving it.


There are only a few ways coolant can get out of the cooling system.
First check where the hoses connect to the radiator to make sure they are completely dry. Then check directly under radiator to make sure it isn't damp. Sometimes the radiator cap will go bad and allow some coolant to leave. You can replace the radiator cap relatively cheap. The very worst way you can be loosing coolant is thru a blown head gasket. The coolant slowly leaks into the cylinder and is burned. You would have to go to a mechanic to have this verified.

99 sunfire loosing water and overheating


Lot's of these problems going around. First thing is to locate where the coolant is going. Is it leaking onto the ground or going through the engine and out the exhaust? As for no heat, Check to be sure you have enough antifreeze. Pure water can cause the engine to not warm up and result in no heat. Air in the system can also cause these problems and must be bled out through the air bleed screw on top of the engine. On most of these cars it is towards the passenger side front on a metal pipe. It's a funny looking fitting with a flat head screw on top and a hole on the side. With the system full and the car running, slowly open the screw until bubbles come out and continue to bleed until you get no more air out. Let the car run to reach normal running temp and try bleeding again and again until you can't get any air out (they're funny that way). If you can not locate coolant leaking onto the ground it's due to a blown head gasket or a cracked head.12_24_2012_5_56_58_pm.png

My Mitsubishi eclipse overheats in heat mode and the fans shut off that cool the engine. What do I do?


Defrost is turning the fans on so there is probably an issue with the fan controls on the car.

I have an 1990 olds cutlas, i'm loosing water from somewhere, the water pump was just replaced the low coolant light will not go off. and i'm still leaking water from somwhere. not sure if it is the block...


Do you see coolant on the ground or is the coolant just disappearing? If you see coolant dripping onto the ground it is an easy find. Open the hood and look in the general area of the leak. follow it up to the starting point. Us a mirror and flash light to look into areas you can not see. Always start at the lowest part and move up until you do not see wet. Use water as coolant will get expensive till fixed. If your coolant is disappearing check your engine oil / dipstick see if the oil is gaining the coolant. If so, stop / do not drive it no where no how, have it towed to a repair shop. If it is running out the tail pipe, is ok to drive but needs repair quickly.

My Nissan Pulsar is using lots of Coolant and temperature gets very high. I have not noticed any leaking coolant


If you are loosing coolant with no leaks, it is either getting into your oil or going out the tailpipe. This would indicate either a blown head gasket or a cracked head, possibly both. You can check for water in your oil...the oil will take on a milky look. If it is coming out the tailpipe you may have a drip where it terminates. Also you can hold your hand a few inches from the end of the tailpipe and moisture will form on your hand. Good Luck. Wish I had better news.

1999 trans am loosing anti freeze no signs of leak


Not good. If you are loosing a measurable amount, with no apparent leak, 2 things could be happening. #1, you are loosing anti-freeze into your crankcase. To check for this, pull out dipstick. If you have coolant in your oil, the oil on the end of the stick will have a milky white tinit to it...like coffee with cream, except thicker. The other possible way to loose coolant is thru the exhaust. You can check this by seeing if you have moisture dripping from the tailpipe, or by holding your hand at the exhaust termination. If moisture forms on your hand, then you are loosing coolant thru the exhaust. These 2 conditions are caused by either a blown head gasket, or a cracked head.

My 2001 jeep liberty needs water added often, like


OK, you know that you are loosing coolant somewhere. What you need to do (I can't from here) is carefully look at everything that water passes through till you find evidence of seepage. Check the ground where you park (but remember that coolant will run down and across, dripping somewhere other than exactly where the leak is) Check the chassis after sitting a few hours, under the pump pulley and head/block parting lines..rug on passenger side and heater control valve on hoses going into firewall.but definitely EVERWHERE.
