I have a 2000 nissan xtterra that is leaking anti freeze by the rad but i cant find any holes. what could it be


There is a small bypass hose that goes from the thermostat housing into the top of the water pump. You have to disassemble quite a few things to even get a look at it. It is a common problem and needs to be fixed as soon as possible. It is located directly above your timing belt and the antifreeze will cause your belt to degrade and fail, then you will be replacing bent valves.

I have a 2005 Suzuki Aerio that keeps on overheating change the thermostat change the radiator but a hose is building pressure causing it to burst


bad hoses.!! heck they are 10 years old, none last for ever.
a hose that fails is a bad hose. but some old hoses can be
pushed of the edge, sure, but hose is bad never the less.
is the rad cap new,? (do that first) use correct cap, pressure rating
never over 14psi.
my guess is you have venting? (name all overheating facts, SIGNS)
arethere signs oif steam and oil and carbon in the rad side tank or at filler hole (cold checked only)
if yes, that can be bad head gasket or far worse.
get the rad pressure checked (hand pump) leak down test.
then check the rad for exhaust gasses. blue/green tester.

does it only overheat parked.? when?
if it stays cool moving that means the fan is dead, parked.
the natural pressure is 12-14psi regulated by the cap.

you need to do tests first. not change parts.
are you going to replace all parts only to find a warped head.?
i cant hear engine run, nor do rational analysis.
nor see it mess up, or when and how bad. not me. im blind.
asking net bunny's (blind) how to fix this is over the top.
why not get the car serviced by a pro that has all those tools.
(at least 3 tools)
compression tester.
rad leak down finds leaks and if block head cracked or head gasket blown.
green/blue rad cap tester. (exhaust leaks)
a pryo IR heat gun to measure for hot points. (checks cores easy)

The top hose was leaking on my 1999 plymouth breeze. i flushed the system, changed the thermostat, and top hose, and replaced the anti-freeze. after starting and driving the vehicle, it ran hot. what did...


Start from cold engine and remove cap and refill rad with heater turned on. Keep topping it up and make sure rad fan comes on once or twice to be sure it has circulated good and all air is out of system.

Leaking anti freeze below engines radiator why?


there is a possibility that it is a radiator hose, or it could be a bad radiator i would take it to a shop and have them do a pressure test on the cooling system and see what they say !
if you have any mechanical skills you can try to warm the jeep up and then when it is hot look around the radiator and see if you see were its leaking from !

i hope this helps

Leaking anti freeze in the right under the hood near right front tire


it could be the water pump if the front of the engine is on that side. or heater hoses. with the engine cold, fill the system full. use straight water so you won't waste anti freeze. run the car until it gets hot. the system will pressurize. inspect the suspected area. the leak should be apparent. if the leak appears to be running from the engine block, it's most likely the pump.

Hate to tell you but it sounds like you have a blown upper or lower intake manifold gasket. This is a very common problem with these cars. I have had mine replaced twice in 150.000 miles. It has been recalled a couple of times 4 or 5 years ago. Its not a cheap fix it ran me about $800 to have them both replaced. If this is found to be the problem when your having it fixed have the garage working on it flush out the complete cooling system of the Dex-col type anti-freeze so it can be filled with regular anti-freeze when there done. Dex-col anti-freeze is the biggest reason these gaskets fail. It eats through and breaks down the gasket over time. But its best to have a garage flush out the system due to the fact the two types of anti-freeze cant be mixed at all or it will turn to a gummy substance and clog up and ruin water pumps , radiators, and heater cores but flushing the system good will keep from any small amount of Dex col being left in the system. In my opinion the regular anti freeze keeps the engine cooler and is twice as cheap not to mention that its gasket friendly
