Hi I have a 96 toyota camry the car overheated . I tried putting 50/50 antifreeze in and it just poured right back out somewhere by firewall area . I had seen someone talk about a joint inlet ??? I tried...

Looks like the dark well of mysterious things behind my engine, too. A joint inlet would probably be for a heater hose line, probably the inlet line to the heater core, as the outlet from the heater core back to the engine would enter near the engine front near the water pump. Conventionally speaking, that is.

It's all conjecture until you get a good look at it. Judging from the picture, I would be underneath the engine looking up. That means blocks under the side frame or jack stands, don't trust any jack. A flashlight and a small mirror in hand, look for where coolant could pour out. Look for that hose inlet, and check the "freeze plugs"-one may have popped out- these are round castings in the engine block, open to the water jacket around the block where coolant circulates. Good luck, now that you are under the car and dirty, now I don't have to do it.

I have a 92 grand marquis. Its been sitting for a while due to bad transmission. I had a crown vic tranny put in with a little over 60,000 mules on it. Anyway i discovered no antifreeze in the reservoir so...

More than likely the intake manifold. It has a crossover tube for coolant in the front of the engine, rite behind alternator. Very common to crank there and water would come out front andrear of eengine area because it flows into empty valley in center of motor and leaks to the rear onto tranny housing and onto exhaust. Causing steam, white smoke. but this is just a guess, could also have a blown or leaking head gasket, hose pretty much anything can have deteriorated in that time.I suggest no running it, until a mechanic can come look at it with a coolant pressure tester.

Added antifreeze and my 2002 dodge caravan is still overheating....the antifreeze did not move from the reservoir....what could be causing this??!! Help!

When it is cool, take the cap off the radiator. See if you can see antifreeze. If you cannot, pour it directly into the radiator.

I have an 1999 chrysler 300m an it has an overheating problem. There is also water all over the driver side floor (front n back) it is soaked. It takes about 25mins b4 it starts smoking. Can som1 plz help...

Typically if your leaking coolant inside the car, it indicates your heater core is split and leaking. Replacing the heater core is quite the job. It requires removal of the dash board and heater box. i replaced one in a 97 Cirrus at work last week and it was a 6 hour job. If your not mechanically inclined i would definitley recomend phoneing around for quotes to local auto repair shops and getting it done profesionally.

I wouldsuspect heater hose or a hose of some type. Parts store has a telescopic mirror that could be helpful in lacating where to find the leak.cheaper than pouring anti freeze on the ground

My 98 honda civic is overheating. The antifreeze resovoir is full, but when I open the radiator cap, there is none in there. I poured antifreeze in the radiator only to start overheating again within...

if your loosing coolant and its not dripping on the floor then the only option is you have a blown head gasket. This can be tested using what is called a chemical block test or a smog machine can sniff your coolant for fuel that isbeing pushed past the bad head gasket. This is a $2000 dollar job if the gasket is bad.

Overheated yesterday put antifreeze in bc it was almost empty did fine now its overheated again

Well Shelly the antifreeze is exiting the cooling system through a leak somewhere. Pouring more antifreeze in is not going to fix the leak. Often the leak is external to the engine and you can see a big puddle form on the ground where the car sits, common examples are burst hoses, leaking radiator, and a leaking heater core can create a wet mess on the passenger side floor. Other leaks such as bad gaskets and cracks in the head and block can cause the antifreeze to leak into the cylinders and lubrication system. First you must find out where the antifreeze is being lost, then figure out if the repair is worth it.

'94 Mazda MX-6 leaking antifreeze from passanger side engine

Don't drive while it is over heating, cast aluminum doesn't like heat and will warp. Should take it to a repair shop if your not sure what is wrong with your vehicle. Your problem sound like the water pump is shot you may have all ready caused major damage if you have drove your vehicle for a while.

Anti freeze all over the place

it could be antifreeze that was on the frame after changing the radiator the best way to tell is run car through a car that has the bottom wash or in a self wash and on... rinse... spray the area around radiator ...then check again later for antifreeze on ground
