Coolant leaking from 1994 Sonoma. Is not near the water pump or radiator, but more towards the back of the block. What might it be?


It could be a heater hose, an intake manifold gasket, or a rusted through freeze plug. You must "look" to see where the leak is originating from.

1998 cadillac deville: I have replaced the water pump, thermostat and all gaskets. It looks like water is leaking between water pump housing and block. Any sugestions or advise on repairing?


If your sure the seal on the water pump is good, I would suggest go to the auto parts store and buying a new water pump gasket. Sorry to tell you this, but take the pump off again. When you have removed the pump, scrape and clean both the engine block at the pump housing, and the pump back to shiny metal( this happened to me a couple of years ago, rushed the job, and gasket was not properly seated).Now that both are clean, put a thin coat of gasket sealant on the pump, and put the gasket on. Apply some sealant to the block housing.Put two bolts(across from each other) in the pump housing before installing(to keep the gasket lined up) and reinstall the pump. Give it a couple of hours for the sealant to set up, then give it a try. don't forget to top the fluids. I think you just pinched the gasket( happens all the time), and is giving the fluid a gap to leak. try this, and let me know

Leaking coolant from a small hole located in the block right under the thermostat housing coolant inlet. we removed housing and gasket replaced gasket and installed, leaks from small hole?


water pump failure, water pump on these run off the timing chain and the timing chain runs in oil, so they could not just put a weep hole on the pump because it would go strait to the oil pan, instead they redirected the coolant from the leaking pump to just below the thermostat housing. And good luck, it's at least a 6 hour job on these. Brandon-MO

Losing my antifreeze


the frost plug wont pop unless youve frozen the truck with only water in the block, if you did and the plug went you'd know.. the rad would have blown and leak extremely. and the block plugs would do more than just trickle under pressure. and for some reason if it didnt pop but it froze then your block will be cracked. or you over heated it badly and warped the heads and now the gasket is leaking.(need more than just the gasket, also need freshly machined heads) I'm thinking you have warped heads, as your truck shouldnt have any pure unmixxed water in it unless it brokedown on you and you had to add it at which point you know you did it and should surmise that thats whear the problem stems from. Good luck Rott.

A leak under the water pump? Just put new water pump in and did not fix the problem.


When you replace the water pump you have to loosen the bolts that also go though the timing chain cover. This have to be removed and the gasket behind it replaced as well as two water pump gaskets. Check all your clamps (best to use new ones) first, but you may be having gasket problems between the pump, pump backing plate, timing chain cover and engine block.

I have a 1993 chrysler lebaron that leaks antifreeze out of both sides of the motor onto the ground. I just had the tube that comes out of the water pump replaced since it had some corrosion along with the...


go to the auto parts store and get the good stop leak.....get the one in the round tube (silver). Your already 450 dollars into it. If it is just small leaks, this will or should stop it. This stop leak also lubes your water pump, and is good stuff.....

A bad leek on the back of my block


Usually they leak from the oring at the back of the water pump but the water runs in the middle of the V of the block and goes at the back. If you've got the manifolf off you should be able to locate the middle pipe and see if it's corroded or leaking. Could be as well the frost plugs at the back of the heads??
I think you should be not too far away from seeing the leak if you've already got your manifold out. Good luck.
