Lower radiator hose inlet tube leaks


the tube runs under the intake if it is a 3.0 liter. so the first step is to remove the intake. you may also have to remove the timing belt and water pump since the tube attaches to the rear of the water pump.

I have a 97 passport and my engine coolant keeps leaking out of a small hole right above the flywheel on the back of the engine block. Is this hole supposed to be there and if so where would the leak...


I Have a 94 Rodeo,3.2l v6 I had the same problem...Yes it is a drain hole..You might have a coolant pipe running under your lower intake if so it's the "O" ring on that pipe..It runs from the upper radiator hose to rear of block...50 cent part. If you are doing it yourself check the other heater hose metal pipe O ring also. towards the front under the thermostat housing. I just fixed mine.I had antifreeze coming out the inspection plates on the trans took off the upper plenium and lower intake and the rubber O ring was shot.Clean out flange use a wire V shaped wheel. make sure the Ring fits Snug on the coolant pipe,dry fit in the flange.( Got assorted sizes at NAPA) put a good coat of Black RTV silicon on O ring,And some in the hole itself press pipe in hole and install the bolts.Allow to set for 3hrs. Again this is on a 94 Isuzu Rodeo 3.2 L V6 5spd. Hope that helps you

My 1998 Chevy Silverado has coolant leaking from the radiator at the small metal fitting at the top drivers side of the rad. Is the a seal that can be replaced or does the entire rad need to be replaced?


There's not usually a seal for these, the metal is commonly molded into the plastic sides of the radiator.. Remove the radiator tube and inspect the plastic around the fitting for cracks. If you find cracks in the plastic, then you know your answer. If it's leaking from around the radiator hose you could try replacing the clamp with a hose clamp that you can tighten with a screw driver.

My guess is the plastic is cracked there, and the radiator needs replaced, but you should inspect it first of course.

Good luck

GMC Yukon has a leak (expelling steam) from the connection to the radiator on left side. Lower connection. Metal hose into a screw fitting. Leaking out the side of the connection. Can this be fixed...


Steam? are you talking about the oil cooler lines? thats the only metal lines I can think of on the left side of the radiator, but those would leak oil. if so there is a o-ring in the fitting that can be replaced. I'm just guessing thats what you are talikng about.

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.

Leaking water from metal tube going down front of motor . what is this metal tube for


Thee tube that you are referring to is the tube that connects the radiator via a radiator hose. Assuming that the radiator hose that you have is the black one that feels like thick cloth. You might have a loose connection on the hose and the metal tube.
