SOURCE: car overheated alot of water leaking out the

First find exactly where the water comes from.
broken hose or hole in radiator - if no leaks here then :-
broken / loose drive belt to water pump - sign is no heat to internal heater
thermostat stuck - heats up and overheats quickly. water from exits rad cap area
also check radiator cap - should be sprung to contain water under pressure, usually these are very reliable

check oil filler cap [inside of] - should be oily and grey/black If it has a covering of what looks like soft brown aireated jelly then possibly hear gasket or other internal engine leak between water & oil ways. The excess pressure from engine will force water out of rad cap area . A compression test with variable readings for between cylinders will confirm this. Hope its not this. It's expensive

99% cracked radiator would be my guess.

SOURCE: 2002 Chevy impala overheating.

If your radiator is clean inside and you water flows and circulates with the radiator cap then it is OK. The leak is probably coming from the intake area or the head gasket. You could try some BARS leak that you can get at your auto parts store and see if it seal the leak. You pour it into the radiator when it is cool. You may have to drain some coolant. There is a drain plug on the bottom of the radiator that twist in the wrong direction to open it. If it does not open don't force it. Try the other way. It should come undone. Wait until it is cool.

My 1994 Buick PA overheats and it seems that the anti-freeze in the reservoir tank never moves--it is still the same brand new fluid thats been in there for a year.


replace the hose and fill the radiator.
There is a bleeder screw where the hose connects to the engine.
there is probably a fluid loss somewhere causing the overheating.
check for wet spots near hoses and if they are really old replace them.
on the right side there are two heater hoses that can cause overheating by leaking. they can be metal and you have to pick them up to see if fluid got under them.
worst case would be a head gasket or damaged head.

Jeep was overheating, Now leaking transmision fluid and won't start


I don't see how leaking transmission fluid would be connected to the engine overheating, unless the radiator blew up.
You'll need to figure out why it won't start to proceed.
Check for spark and fuel pressure, and of course compression.
Is the check engine light on ?

2002 Chevy impala overheating. Replaced radiator, water pump (thermostat is working properly). Not sure if radiator was bleed out correctly. Car is still overheating and fluid leaking out the bottom...


Engine size? if it has a leak, that is first priority. There may be bleeder screws at the thermostat housing, and the water by pass pipe. just open them slightly until coolant comes out.

I'm leaking coolant from area of the water pump. It is not overheating when running even when at idol. When I replace the fluid it starts leaking from the bottom as I'm refilling the radiator but not...


No decent tech will guess where the leak is. You need to actually get under there and look. When you find the leak source, that is the part you need to replace. As for overheating, it eventually will get worse and loose enough coolant to overheat. don't wait for that to happen!!

Car overheating & transmission is slipping


Sounds like a bad radiator. The radiator doesn't just cool the coolant. It also cools the tranny fluid. So if it just started overheating and slipping at the same time then the radiator has probably leaked out enough coolant to make it overheat and enough tranny fluid to make it slip. Check for leaks or wet spots where you park. And obviously check both fluid levels.

first rectify the leakages! then ensure that the thermo sensor is in good condition! if it is then change your engine control unit after checking that the fan are working!

Radiator vs. transmission


same issue. tranny fluid is cooled via intercooler that runs along bottom of radiator. this developed a crack and because tranny fluid is under more pressure, started dumping tranny fluid into radiator. A couple guys recommended replacing rad, then servicing tranny just in case any coolant leaked backwards.
