Looks like bypass hose or engine coolant plug just got leak! look at ur coolant reservoir, it might overflowing when ur engine heats up and its dripping towards the engine! Look and search all the hoses in the side of the engine and reservoir! If its the bypass hose, there will be a difficulty in removing and replacing it, but u could fix it! taah!

My 2001 Terracan highlander has coolant leaking under the engine.Can someone tell me where the leak is coming from and how to fix it? The car has a v6 3.5l engine.


Could be welsh plugs on side of engine are corroded.
Could be a smaller pipe like a heater hose pipe or an auxilary cooling pipe .Had one of these little extra pipes on a mitsubishi sigma under the inlet manifold that was leaking.
Did you use a coolant in the engine as water can corrode welsh plugs in engines as I found out on my car !.

Why is coolant leaking from underneath the center of my cadillac deville 1997? I've replaced everything that has to do with the coolant. There is no water nor fog on the passenger side floor


Well, if the coolant is leakimg from the HVAC drain, then you need a heater core, no matter what. You really have to jack it up and look, but I can give you a couple of pointers......

1. The water pump is leaking. That happens a lot. The coolant is leaking near the front of the car, near the center, but ever so slightly towards the drivers side. You need a special tool to replace it and I think gm has an updated cover and gasket.

2. The water pump housing is leaking. The gaskets that seal it to the block are made of plastic and deteriorate often. The coolant will be leaking at the center of the car, maybe up by the water pump, or back between the engine and transmission.

3. The heater hoses. I have only seen this 2 time, but the metal pipes corrode along the fire wall.

4. You could need a radiator. I have seen the side tanks leak a few times.....


Just A couple of places to look, but you have to get under and look....

What happens when your water pump goes out?


under pump there's a weep hole, located in center of pump below the shaft that the pulley is attached, if coolant is coming out of that hole, pump is bad. otherwise, gaskets between pump / engine are leaking.

Looks like a leak at the bottom of engine


It is likely the water pump is leaking and the coolant is running back under the engine. Put you finger under the bottom of the water pump near the front where the shaft comes out, if it comes back wet with coolant the pump is leaking.

Reoccuring Coolant Leak - Now major leak


The Jaguar XK8 has a coolant hose on the rear of the engine that is prone to leaking. The leak is typically on the right side, right above the catalytic converter. There is a quick disconnect fitting that has an o-ring in it. This O-ring fails with age, and the coolant leaks from the connector.

Check to see if the water is coming from the center of the front of the engine or if it is coming from one of the sides of the front of the engine. If it is from the side it is probably a busted hose and cheap and easy to fix. If it is coming from the center, locate the water pump and look at it from the underside there is a weep hole there and if it is leaking from that hole the water pump needs to be replaced.
