Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue that has a small coolant leak. It appears to be leaking somewhere under the motor on the drivers side of the vehicle. I ran it up yesterday and the fans seem to cycle fine and the car isn't overheating and no sign of a leak. The next morning there are signs of fresh coolant under the motor. Have looked around the engine but can't seem to indentify the source of the leak. Possible frost plug failure maybe?

Could be intake gaskets, Use a rad. cap/rad. pressure tester, dont pressurize system higher than the rad cap is rated for(psi). You might find the leak that way.

Water leak from back side of motor


Freeze plugs in each head as well as in the block will leak over time. Don't just replace one...replace them all or you will keep having leaks as each freeze plug rusts through enough to leak.

Why does my car overheat for a month straight but coolant in it then doesntfor 2 months thjen does again


you have a coolant leak somewhere ! check the intake manifold gaskets for leaking, the water pump maybe leaking out of relief hole on bottom of pump. make sure the coolant recovery tank is not leaking. look very carefully and you will find it.

2001 Oldsmobile Alero Temperature goes high - alarm sounds - steaming from under hood. Losing coolant. Have already replaced the Temp Sending unit, the Thermostat, and the Water Pump.


I would have someone pressure test the cooling system to determined if there is an external or internal leak somewhere as it sound like you have one or the other. An internal leak, such as a head gasket, won't show up as a dripping coolant but will cause coolant to be forced out of the coolant reserve tank in a kind of bubbly burp as the engine warms up while an external leak usually can be spotted by following the trail of leaking coolant back to it's source. I would suggest having it checked out as soon as possible as serious engine damage can result from even a fairly short time spent overheating.

I have a coolant leak.2001 alero 4cy 2.4


If you had the engine replaced and have the same leak, it may be be somewhere else. You can rent a tool from most parts stores that pressurizes the cooling system. If you get that tool, top off the coolant and follow instructions to pressurize that system, you may be able to see where it's leaking. While it's under pressure, take a flashlight or shop light and look in all the main areas. (hose connections, radiator, water pump, ect)
