I would look around to see if it's a cooling line, a radiator, or something simple like that.

If you can't determine where it is leaking, take it to a radiator shop and have them pressurize the system to check for leaks.

They should be able to pinpoint the problem, quickly.

Dodge durango 2000 the antifrezze emptyes after we put it in


You're losing the antifreeze probably due to a leak. Look under it for a puddle. if no puddle, tighten all hose clamps and have the cap tested, if it's ok, you need to pressure test the cooling system to try to see the leak. If you still can't find it, it may be a head gasket or cracked head.

My 2003 jeep grand cherokee laredo has a problem with my coolant reservoir drains quickly and i also have condensation on inside of window. when i turn on the heater i see dust or steam come from...


Your water heater core is beginning to leak. Eventually, you will find an antifreeze puddle on the passenger side floor which can eventually lead to the rupture of the heater core and a large amount of antifreeze in gaseous form within the cars interior.

It is time for a new heater core. Should you want to go the cheapest route, you can purchase a bottle of copper plugging agent. Ask your local car part guru what he has to plug a leak in the heater core.

Be forewarned: should you go this cheap route, you risk clogging your heater core for good and you will no longer have heat until you replace the heater core.

Strong antifreeze smell when running the heater in 99 silverado, can't see a leak, strong smell, is heater core bad


Usually a smell of antifreeze in the cab when the heater is running is a sign the heater core is leaking. Just becasue you dont see a leak at this time doesn't mean there isn't one. It might small enough that the haet from the core is burning off the leaking antifreeze. I would suggest replacing the core before you get in one day and there is a puddle on your floorboard. Or if you go to a local parts store and rent a cooling system pressure tester, wait until the vehicle is cold, pressure the system to 12 lbs and then check for leaks. Hope this helps you out......

How do i know if heater core is leaking?


if you have a puddle of water on your floorboard and you dont know where its coming from that would most likely be your problem because the same thing happened to my cavalier and i had to replace it its in the plastic shroud behind the middle console towards the bottom and the 2 heater core hoses you can see if you pop your hood and look behind the motor around the area where your rack and pinion is they arent hard 2 miss theyre 2 small hoses right next to each other and theyre easier to get off from underneath the car

99 Sunfire Coolant keeps dumping


You need to find the source of the leak. it hasn't overheated yet because you keep catching it and re-filling. From your description, it sounds a lot like a bad water pump seal (part of pump) but without physically looking you can't be sure of that. when the pump seal begins to fail, internal pressure while running often will drive the seal tighter against the shaft stopping the leak. as pressure drops as the engine cools, the seal relaxes and permits seepage.
With time, that will change and it will leak all the time.

My 95 jeep cherokee is overheating and is leaking antifreeze


Hi Oscar

First: If you have pets, keep them away from the puddle. Antifreeze can kill them. Use sawdust, kitty litter, whatever to soak it up.

Did you see where it was leaking from?

If the shop you mentioned were the ones that replaced it, I'd give them a call, tell them what happened, that you want it TOWED back to their shop to have it done right. Any damage caused by the over heat will be their responsibility too.

Document everything, Dates, times , who talked to, Whether or not your new radiator looks new (or spray painted)

Something isn't right.

Antifreeze drip on drivers side inside cab of 2000 Audi A6 2.7T


leaking heater core or hose that feeds it. look for hoses that pass thru the firewall to passenger compartment. Most times the hose is clamped to a pipe at the firewall so you may just need a hose

How to replace coolant tank on Saturn SL2


The antifreeze tank is held on by I believe two bolts on the side. It's pretty easy to remove,

Just unbolt, remove hose and do the reverse with your new one.

As far as a replacement, I'd junkyard or ebay one. Lot cheaper, quicker, and easier than trying to get an aftermarket one and modifying to fit.
