My 1994 dodge dakota v8 magnum appears to be leaking what I think is tranny fluid around the front of the engine. Does anyone know what my cause this?


The tranny fluid could be leaking from a line or cooler if coming from the front of the engine. The fluid is usually cooled by the radiator if an automatic transmission and is cooled in the radiator tanks. It may also have an external cooler attached to the front of the radiator area that can also leak

Leaking radiator... on drivers side, facing the engine, in the bottom corner, there is a place that appears to have had a hose...it also appears to be where the fluid is coming out at... difficult to see...


It's not the drain plug, is it? I don't think there would be a coolant hose there. Sometimes a drain plug will have a short hose to direct the drain downward.
There may also be two lines to the radiator from the transaxle-they are cooling lines to a separate reservoir inside the radiator, to cool the transmission fluid. Examine the fluid and see if it is coolant or transmission fluid. Your radiator may have to come off to stop the leak if it is not a drain plug that just needs a new o-ring seal or needs tightening.

That appears to be trans fluid mixed with the coolant. There is a trans fluid cooler built into the radiator and it appears to be leaking meaning you need a new radiator. Use some dishwashing soap to flush the system after the repair.

Chevrolet Blazer overheating, misfiring, and temp gauge jumping around


Look at the area where you park. Is there any fluid under the car that is not oily but rather is slick and has a sweet smell - yes, you wil have to stick your finger in it to see. If you find this type of fluid, you have a leak from somewhere in the engine compartment. Judge by the amount of fluid whether this is a major and potential calamity. (Lots of antifreeze could mean a bad hose or a bad water pump.)

Once you've checked for leaks, check the plastic reservoir that holds the radiator coolant overflow - is there anything in it? If you found alot of fluid on the ground, odds are that the reservoir will be low. If it is much below the fill line, add some water and coolant (50/50 mix) until it is back to the fill line.and check it for awhile to see if it needs more after you have driven for a bit (keep the coolant with you in the car just in case.) When the engine is cold, and as you are checking the reservoir, remove the radiator cap by pushing down on it a bit and turning it in the direction shown on the cap itself. Look into the radiator with a flashlight to see where the fluid level is. If it is more than 2 inches from the top, add a bit of coolant/water but not up to the top. Replace the cap firmly and add coolant/water to the reservoir cold level mark.
If that all looks fine, you may have a bad water pump, a plugged radiator, a week cooling fan or a bad thermostat.

Good luck.

2000 F150 4.2L OIL APPEARS TO BE IN RADIATORS RUNNING HOT


are you sure that this is oil, it sounds more like transmission fluid, i would get the radiator checked out, it sounds like the radaitor is defective allowing the transmission fluid to seep into the coolant area of the radiator.

Is the water tank the windshield washer fluid or the radiator overflow tank??

If it is the washer fluid tank, fill it with "below 32F" type fluid. If it is the radiator over flow tank, it would appear to me that the radiator fluid is too watered down or weak and is not freeze resistant. The radiator fluid should be 50/50 mix of Prestone or other make of radiator fluid and water. This is to save your engine and radiator from bursting. Ice takes up move volume that water (this is why Ice floats on water). Inside of a pipe, radiator or engine block, this can be devisating. You could crack your radiator or engine block. Hopefully who ever serviced your car last used the correct fluid. You might want to get this checked before more damage happens to your car.

Hope this helps.

My 2002 Jeep Liberty 3.7 liter is leaking coolant from what appears to be the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.I have to replace about 2 quarts of fluid after a short drive.And no one has drained...


The Drain Plug aka Radiator Drain **** has an o-ring on it that does wear-out over time, causing a leak. You can remove and replace these relatively ease. They only turn 1/4th to 1/3rd Counterclockwise to Open and Clockwise to Close. Work on only when the engine is cool. Leave the cap on the radiator to create a suction, decreasing the amount of radiator fluid you will lose. OR drain the Radiator Fluid into a clean container and save for reuse.
Have the new Radiator Drain **** ready for immediately insertion after removing the other leaking Radiator Drain ****. To Remove:
Twist the Radiator Drain **** counterclockwise and pull, continuing to twist counterclockwise removing it.
Immediately install the new Radiator Drain **** by first pushing in and then twisting clockwise to close.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

1996 Acura 3.2TL Overheating Problem...


From your description of symtoms it sounds like you have a bad water pump. If the coolant is not circulating properly you will have a heating problem. Sometimes even a new thermostat can stick and cause the engine to overheat. I have seen them fail in as little as a week after they were installed.
