You have to find where the water is going may be a broken hose or leaking water pump can also be a blown head gasket so it is very important to investigate it first. before spending money falsely.once you know then its easier to help you begin the repairs.

    Check the clutch on the Fan, if the clutch fan when grabbing the fan is easily movable in both directions when trying to spin the fan then its bad, the clutch fan should have some resistance to pushing the fan in either direction with not much strength of a spin put into spinning the fan at all. then check the t stat, next, replace the radiator.

In many cases, the intake develops a crack in the water passage and will leak. If it's been overheated enough, the heads may be cracked. There is really no easy fix for these.

When i put the heater on in the car while running it drains battery and after shutting the car off it won't start battery dead


This would be a fan issue in most cases because the heating is done by using the water system that gets hot from the motor and then is blown throughout the car to make it warm so the only electrical device getting used is the fan unless you are also using the AIR-CONDITIONER to heat the car which will drain a lot of power .

My heater is working and im loosing a lot of water but have no leaks


Check the thermostat. It keeps the cooling water in a small closed circuit till the engine is warm. Then it should open to send the water to the radiator and the heating system.

Ya I have a 2002 Nissan sentra,the car temp gauge goes to max heat ,,but its blowing cold air inside the car ,,,and im already in cold weather ,,got any ideas" could really use some help!!


yeah, low on coolant, or a blockage in the cooling system. I would do the thermostat first, should be simple and fairly inexpensive.

2000 Oldsmobile alero had water in the coolant and it froze over night now it over heats and shoots the coolant out the overflow . I don't think the water pump is out. What else could be wrong?


Very serious.... don't over heat too much or your car will break..... could be the thermostat is hooped... or the water pump.... make sure the car is completely thawed.... but i'd she over heats take her to the mach.... night cost a few bucks but no car costs a lot more

1999 isuzu amigo water in passenger and driver floorboard no antifreeze smell at all.


this sounds like a build up of condensation (water) possibly in your ac/heat ducting or possibly in the plastic casings under the dash that house some of the heating and cooling components. cold ac components close to warm or hot heating components will lead to water build up this is why there should be a drain tube for the plastic housing under the dash board that leads to the outside of the vehicle. this drain tube may be clogged or may be disconnected and not draining to the outside but instead its allowing the water to fall into the area under your dash board. FYI you can sometimes see these drain tubes drip water on cars that use their air conditioner a lot, it looks like the car is leaking water from the bottom but it's just the water draining away from cool air conditioner lines on a hot day and draining properly to the outside of the car and not on the floor inside.

My 99 alero v6 is over heating not leaking ight mite be hoses or thermostat . or head gasket but when it overb heats the smoke comes from the top of the engine


REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.IF CAR OVER HEATING WHILE IN MOTION.MORE LIKELY ITS THE THERMOSTAT,LOW COOLANT IN RADIATOR OR COOLANT SYSTEM,BAD WATER PUMP,WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE IS LEAKING, WATER PUMP NEEDS REPLACING.CHECK ENGINE OIL,IF OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE YOU HAVE LEAKING HEAD GASKET.IF CAR IN PARK AND OVER HEATS WHILE IN A LONG TRAFFIC LINE OR.BANK DRIVE THROUGH COOLANT FAN NOT TURNING ON, BECAUSE THE ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR FAULTY.CODE SCAN CAR FOR FAULTY COOLANT FAN RELAY OR FAULTY PCM. CHECK COOLANT FAN FUSE, AND HOT WIRE THE COOLANT FAN TO MAKE SURE ITS WORKING.IF COOLANT FAN DONT WORK WHEN HOT WIRED. COOLANT FAN NEEDS REPLACING. REPLACE BOTH RADIATOR HOSES, REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.BUY NEW COOLANT ADD 50/50 WATER AND COOLANT.IF ENGINE OIL HAS ANTIFREEZE IN IT.REPLACE ENGINE OIL AND OIL FILTER TO KEEP FROM LOCKING UP THE ENGINE.GET CAR FIX.DONT KEEP DRIVING IF IT KEEP OVER HEATING,ENGINE DAMAGE WILL OCCUR.I HOPE INFORMATION I GAVE YOU WILL FIX PROBLEM.PROBLEM COULD BE LEAKING RADIATOR HOSES BUT CHANGE THERMOSTAT THATS FIRST THING I WOULD CHANGE BECAUSE IF IT CLOSED, ENGINE WILL OVER HEAT AND CRACK CYLINDER HEAD OR CRACK PISTON, COOLANT NEED TO CIRCULATE THROUGH THE ENGINE TO TAKE AWAY THE HEAT FROM ENGINE.

It really does overheat a lot when in traffic.


You need to check youe water pump, thermostat and your radiator cap and if all of that is good it sounds like a blown headgasket.
