Coolant leaks


Hi, Andre. That sounds like the water pump's seals have given out. If you can see the water pump, look on the bottom of it for coolant leaking. If that's where it's coming from, you'll have to replace the water pump. On your Lumina, the pump is either driven by the serpentine belt, or by the timing belt. You need to look at a repair manual for your car.

I have an 1992 chevy lumina antifreeze is leaking from the bottom of the firewall


You have a coolant leak, either in the heater core, or from the heater hose that feeds heated coolant to the core.

I have a 4-door 1992 Chevy Lumina Euro 3.1L V6... what does it mean when you're low coolant light is on and your temp light starts to cut .. and my car is start to stop when i come to a complete stop...


You need to repair the low coolant condition before any more diagnosis. If the coolant in the radiator is low that's what the light is telling you. You may have a coolant leak. fix that first then make sure the cooling system is full. Use coolant (50/50) not water.

After I added coolant to 91 chevy lumina the low coolant light will not go of I wonder why


When filling the coolant system you need to have the car running with radiator cap off and you can also burp the coolant hose while filling the system to remove any air. The system may be full for a while until thermostat opens and sucks the coolant out of radiator which is the perfect time to add more to top it off.

Disconnecting your negative battery cable for 10 minutes will reset the computer and shut off the light.

Coolant is dripping on top of fan belt and is now slowly leaking from the bottom of the radiator


Have cooling system pressure tested - replace item(s) that are leaking. Pressure test will identify where leaks are present.

Coolant leak top rear of engine near throttle body 1996 3.4 lumina vpv


Most of the time when I see coolant leaking at the rear/top of the 3400 engine, beneath the throttle plate area, it's usually coming from the intake gaskets. There is a coolant cross-over passage at the rear of both heads and as time passes the gasket will sometimes split along the sides of this passage and coolant will begin to leak out. It can be tough to see clearly whats going on in this area well enough to pinpoint the exact source of the leak so it may take a bit of time to find it. Often with an intake gasket leak the coolant will puddle on top of the block then drip down the rear side of the engine and drip off of the pan or transmission bell housing. Hope this helps you find your problem!

1992 mazda mx3 is overheating. checked thermostat seems to be working. Noticed that the heater started acting up a few days before it overheated......Heater works randomly, seems like you start the car...


Check your coolant. If the coolant is low, you won't get heat in the cabin. Make sure that the fan is turning on as well. Check coolant sensors also. Good luck!

1992 lumina smokes out of heater, consumes more gas


your heater core has probably sprung a leak.does the smoke smell kinda sweet?....check the floor in the front where the floor mats are for moisture or even puddles of antifreeze.(the replacement of a heater core can be very expensive as the entire dash usually needs to be removed to access the heater core)also look under the engine near the firewall for antifreeze drips.
