    I have this same problem with a Low Coolant light on and it appears to be coming from the black "overflow" hose towards the back of the coolant container. I've added coolant several times to and a little above the Fill Line. Would this also indicate a water pump problem?

When you say pouring out by a pulley,which pulley. The water pump on your car will have a "tattle tail hole" which will seep fluid when the pump is worn and the seal is weak you could try to grab the waterpump pulley with your hands (With the belt off) and check for play in the pump shaft itself.good luck

If antifreeze is "pouring" out by the pulley where there are two black hoses attached, that is the water pump and must be replaced. MM85

I acciedently put oil in radiator?


That should not harm the system as long as you flush the system out when its hot. Failure to remove the oil will swell the rubber hoses and the will fail.

Why would my jaguar XJ6 pully start squeeking, sounds like bearings?


what is happening is the belt is not getting full contact with the pulley, you might just have some antifreeze residue from repair and by slowly poring 1/2 a gallon of water on the belt will wash off this residue BUT first look under the car for leaks ! AC off let car run for 10 minutes on driveway mark the tires position with a coin back car up and look for a wet spot, the coin will give you a better idea where the leak may be.. no leak YAAAA .. next step .
pulley groves may have trash in the groves this can be cleaned with a bar of lava soap WARNING this procedure is done with the engine running and is dangerous ! take the bar of vava and touch it to the inside of the belt, this pumice in the soap works well for cleaning the pulley groves. also a ice pick or a small screwdriver can be used in the groves of the pulleys to clean black residue in the bottom of the groves.. remember i I was able to help you thank me

Leaking antifreeze from the fan pully. is the fan pully the water pump


Hi,
The water pump will be directly behind the fan pulley. The fan pulley mounts onto the water pump shaft. So no the fan pulley is not the water pump.

I heard a pop noise & saw smoke then seen that the car was over heating. so i pulled over stopped turned the car off , looked underneath & antifreeze was just poring out.


Sounds like you blew a radiator hose or a cooling system component. Find out where the water is coming from and repair it. You dont need to use antifreeze to find out where the leak is but once you get the system to hold water, you do need to put antifreeze back in. Also check the cooling fan to be sure it is working properly and the car is not over heating.

Leaking engine coolant from bottom of engine front passenger side


Probably a water pump seal unfortunately. Pressurize the system, with the engine off, use a mirror to look under the water pump pulley to see if any fluid is dripping from the water pump seal weep hole.
If it is, change the water pump.
Good luck, let me know.
