Hello, If the plastic tank is leaking, I don't think you will have much luck patching it. You might try some stop leak but I don' think that will work, plus when using stop leak you take a chance stopping up the system. Go to auto zone or Advance Auto and price a new radiator.

I am leaking antifreeze under my blazer onto the ground but not inside the vehicle. My blazer does not overheat, my heat will work sometimes while driving but as soon as I stop or slow down it blows cold....


you need to figure out where the coolant is leaking from. Some common areas are

the water pump in which case you would be able to remove the splash shield from under the front of the vehicle and using a flash light be able to see coolant coming out of the weep hole of the water pump.

The intake gaskets. Look in the corner of the intake valley where the head and lower intake meet right under the a/c compressor. If you see coolant its leaking and needs to be replaced.

The radiator, you'll be looking for wet spots on the side tanks of the radiator. Loose upper and lower radiator hoses could also cause this.

If you can't find anything visually you'll need to bring it in and have it pressure tested.

Have a red light warning on the saturn 2000 SL with a wave on the bottom and a another wave upside down on the top..what does this indicate.. Mechanic first said coolant problem and added the antifreeze...


There is a sensor in the coolant overflow tank and when the antifreeze gets below that line the warning light comes on. When the coolant level is falling below that line it means the coolant is going somewhere and not staying in the system. Leaking radiator, water pump, hoses, heater core, bad gasket all come to mind. Generally you will see a green or orange stain on the ground where the car is most often parked, that will lead you to where the leak is. But it may only leak after it is warmed up and running so you would have to examine under the hood to find a stain there.

Indicator light- looks like an upside down arrow pointing into a box of liquid- on my saturn sl 2000. Goes on after i go over about 10 miles an hour. i lost my manual long ago! What is this indicating?


the light means that your coolant level is low. after the car has sat for long enough to cool down remove the radiator cap and ad 50/50 mixture antifreeze till full. start car and ad more as required. check for visible leaks.

2003 saturn ion adding antifreeze every 2 weeks cannot find leak


There should be a radiator cap as it controls what goes into the overfill tank. You might consider replacing it. If there are no leaks in the radiator or hoses, there are only 3 places the coolant can go (water pump leak, blown gasket, or out throught the radiator cap). Hope its the cap because that's the cheapest. Good luck!

Replaced water pump, alternator, radiator, crank sensor and no coolant leaks and car has antifreeze, but why is low coolant dashboard indicator light keep flashing on 97 saturn sl2


Inside the coolant reserve tank there is a sensor for coolant level.


Over time,this sensor can get stick.


Inspect the coolant reserve tank for crack or leak.

Locate the coolant level switch/sensor and soak it in clean warm water.

Make sure it's free to move up and down the float path.

Top off the coolant tank with coolant only.

1994 Saturn SL1: Profuse Coolant Leak


This is very likely a water pump. It is on the right side and often water is thrown around by the belt. A pump is about $35 and labor should be no more than $60. You would also have the cost of the antifreeze ($15 to $20) and possibly a serpentine belt if required.

If you are mechanically inclined, this is not that difficult of a job. After doing 2 I got the job down to 45 minutes. You must remove the pulley first then the water pump bolts.

OIL IN ANTIFREEZE


Everyone automatically assumes that oil and water mixing means a blown head gasket or cracked engine block. Of course common sense is usually not that common. Oil in coolant is a different problem than coolant in oil. The former is a low pressure leak, and could indicate only an intake manifold gasket. It could also be an early or small head gasket leak. Coolant in oil is usually a cracked block or torn head gasket, and has concomitant symptoms of white exhaust smoke and milky oil on dipstick. If you replace the head gasket and the problem persists, an intake gasket could have fixed the problem.
