2003 mits galant, water drianing heavily on the passenger side floor board

That sounds like water leaking from your over flow tank? Is it coming from the area behind the glove box on the passenger side? If so, open the hood and take a look at the over flow tank. Is there any fluid in it? Is the hose going to the over flow tank healthy and without holes? Has it come unclipped or unfastened from the over flow tank? Has the tank itself cracked? Is your car over heating? You could have problems with your heater core. Is the water that is leaking hot? If your car is not registering as hot or over heating, and water is being sent to the over flow tank (because it is over heating) which is leaking or the hose has failed ect - then I would also suggest checking your thermostat to figure out why it is not registering the vehicle as hot?

I replaced the water pump, thermostat, flush radiator, check heater core, but the antifreeze keeps coming back into the overflow tank and therfore over heat. what could the problem be.

Only two thing could cause this problem. The actual radiator cap needs to be replaced or the neck is not smooth. If the cap is lifting prematurely it allows water to flow into the expansion tank. The second problem would be a leaky head gasket. This could be determined if the expansion tank has a black reside inside the tank. Changing the water pump and heater core was an expensive route the didn't need to happen.

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus my blower is blowing fine the heat is coming out cold i have recently changed my theromastat and the heat is still blowing cold

The heater core (a mini radiator located under the dash) or its feeder hoses are clogged. They are not allowing water to circulate through the heater core. That is where the heat comes from.

Water is flowing changed the thermostat and the

are you sure you bleeded the air out correctly. These are a pain sometimes. Water pump blades are know to fall apart and this could also clog up the system almost anywhere

Car over heating, losing collant. is it the theromastat? and where is it located?

sounds like a water-pump ,or a busted hose,start your car and try and see where the leak is coming from.if its leaking from the rad it could be a bleeder nut its about 3 bucks or the rad itself,if it were the theromastat it would normally just overheat and shut down,im not sure where the thermomastat is on your caddy but it should be behind your fan and it is inside a part called a gooseneck a metal part with 2 or 3 bolts
