Antifreeze leaking


If it is at the water pump there can be several reasons for that . all old gasket has to be removed as ant left will not allow the new gasket to seal. Always good gasket sealant on both sides of the gasket before fitting. If the bolts are different lengths then ensure that the right bolt goes in the right hole . If the bolt goes into the water jacket then the bolt threads will have to be dipped in thread sealant before installing

My o4 kia spectra is overheat


Hi Ali,usually the first thing to check is the thermostat,could not be opening all the way,causing it not to circulate fast enough to keep engine cool,here's a guide on how to replace.Here's the part.Here's the gasket.And let's not forget the sealant,don't want it to leak.Here's some antifreeze.If your antifreeze is a different color than this kind,don't mix,ask for your color type if different,must use extended life antifreeze cause of the aluminum water pump,could melt and become deformed.

My car started overheating. I was almost out of antifreeze, but my reserve tank still had antifreeze. Put a sealant in the radiator believing there was a leak, as well as the 50/50 mix, but it still ran...


Not likely water pump unless pump is leaking. You need to figure out where the antifreeze leaked out. Can you see anything leaking with radiator full and engine running? I have some tips at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5929960-s_thermostat if you want to troubleshoot. Let me know if you have questions.

Leaking water from radiator and overheating


The overheating problem is due to the leak. Radiators are suppose to hold pressure and it is Pressure that changes the Boiling point of the water.
Without the Pressure the water will vaporize at a lower temperature and you will not get good cooling. You could also have a clogged system. Also test the Radiator cap.

There are several ways to try to fix this. Radiator Sealant, Rebuild your Radiator, or buy a new Radiator.

The sure solution is buy a new Radiator. Rebuilding one is a little cheaper sometimes, but you may pay someone to put your old parts on a new core. At best, the bad spot can be braised and the rest of the Radiator is good. Buy a new one and do it yourself. You are not paying someone and getting back used parts this way.

Sealant- If you do this you should clean the system first. They make a Coolant system cleaner. Then get a really good brand of Sealant. Not a K-mart item but something over $15 and sold only at NAPA or ask the Dealer. But you will have invested about $25 in cleaner and Sealant with just the Hope of success.

Since antifreeze is over $8 a gallon you need to think about the best way to keep it in the truck.

Having to put approx 2 gallons of Antifreeze in


Get a tin of a good quality Radiator Sealant or a couple of packets of Ce-lit and apply them to the problem

Once you have stopped the leak go back to the stadard mix of Anti Freeze to Water

If the water tends to keep going down then there has to be a leak somewhere. Try also looking at the hose coming from the overflow tank and see if the hose might be kinked. You might also be blowing antifreeze out the tailpipe. Take a look and if there is bluish white smoke then you have confirmed that theory,

02 malibu has a rusted screw on top of the engine block and some antifreeze is leaking out. Is there a sealant of some type that can seal the leak?


There's a number of different sealants that might do the trick. Unfortunately, it will be near impossible to get a good seal to the rusted/dirty surface. Can you remove the bolt? If so, it would be much better to remove it, clean the threading inside the block and install a new bolt (using sealant on the threads).
