Question about 1989 Chevrolet C2500

1 Answer

My 89 Chevy C2500 starts leaking coolant after 10 miles or so of driving. I can't see an obvious leak but the bottom fan housing has a bunch of coolant in it. I replaced the water pump about 2 years ago. Should I start looking for a new radiator?

Look at the intake manifold gasket. This problem appears to be common on 1990s series Chevrolet small truck engines. It is a time consuming job to replace the intake manifold gasket.

Thermostat housing cooling radiator


probably either the intake manifold gasket, or a head gasket has failed allowing cylinder compression to escape into the cooling system and boiling the coolant. also look for milky oil(water in the crankcase), or for oil in the coolant system(rainbow sheen on top of coolant in the radiator, or overflow reservoir).

My infiniti q45 is over heating and wont hold coolint


Sounds like the thermostat is stuck closed...( did it overheat quickly?)..Where the top or upper radiator hose connects to the engine is where the thermostat is (usually) located.. it may have its own housing also.. but - coolant flows through this from the top...so you can trace the flow and find it.. make sure you get a new gasket and clean all the mating/gasket surfaces

Is this the only place it leaks. These cars are notorious for head gasket & intake gasket leaks. Have the coolant system pressure tested for any other leaks. You also may have cracked the thermostat housing when the thermostat was not seated properly. Check the flow rate through the rad. The rad may be blocking up or the water pump impellor may be loose in the water pump. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Losing water


Probably is a leak in the head gasket between the water jacket and the cylinder or possibly a cracked head. Either way, it's not cheap even if you are fixing it yourself. Rick
