Belt slipped off leaked antifreeze can i replace the belt and still be able to drive it


if there was a coolant leak then the squeak is more than likely the water pump hence the leak, a belt coming off would'nt cause a coolant leak on its own ,i'd get the water pump checked

Put antifreeze in and it leaks drivers side under car behind water pump are there water hoses there


On the water pump there is a weep hole when the pump fails they tend to leak out of the weep holes. Its also possible the water pump seal failed too. On this car the timing belt drives the water pump. If you drive on it and the pump locks up. You will be replacing the motor or the whole top end of the engine due to bent valves. Its time to replace the water pump and timing belt. Then you will be good to go again. So do not drive it for the sake of saving your engine. I'd tow it in to the shop or replace the belt and pump yourself.

How do you take the water pump on a 2001 chevy impala off.


The first thing you do is disconnect one of the battery cables, remove the over flow canister , make sure you leave the hose on, there will be enough room to lay it out of the way, you will need a 10 mil socket or wrench. you will have to remove the serpentine belt before you began., you will need a half inch drive ratchet tool to take off the belt tension, it is located right around the idler pulley ( note loosen the four bolts from the water pump pulley before you remove the the serpentine belt, then remove the bolts on the water pump, you will have to use a ten mil socket for this) also be careful not to lose the bolts, sometimes they will fall down on the ground if your lucky & sometime it drop some where on the frame. ( hard to find.). Once you get the pump off, make sure you a putty knife to scrape off the old gasket on the engine and make sure you glue the gasket to the water pump and let the glue set up before you install the new pump.Make sure you drain the antifreeze first. when you a finished pour antifreeze in radiator be careful not to overflow.Next start the car and let it idle, when the right temp.is obtained pour some more antifreeze in until the radiator is full, replace the cap and check for leaks, if no leaks then drive the car for about 15 min., then recheck for leaks.

I have a leak of antifreeze under the car and am thinking it might be the water pump leaking. Where is the water pump located on a 2001 chevy cavalier Z24?


whichever side of the motor you see the drive belts on.

Ford puts theirs on the passenger side but I see gm stuff on the drivers side too.

pop the hood and look for the drive belts. It is either drivin by one of these belts OR off the timing belt under the timing belt cover.

WATER PUMP REPLACE DIAGRAM


  1. Step 1 Drain the antifreeze from cooling system. Remove belt from water pump. Examine and see if you have to remove anything else to get out the water pump. If so make a diagram of everything you are removing so you can put it back together.
  2. Step 2 Remove the hoses from the water pump. Find all bolts holding the water pump in . Loosen each one a little bit. After all are lose you can then remove them. Remove water pump. Put new gasket on and install new water pump. Hook up hoses to water pump. Look at your diagram and replace everything you had to remove earlier. Put the belt back on.
  3. Step 3 Shut the drain on system and refill cooling system. Make sure you use the antifreeze that is designed for system. Run engine for a couple of minutes. Check for leaks and check coolant level. Add if necessary. If there is no leaks you are ready to go.

Antfreeze leak not allowing belt to get traction where might the antifreeze be coming from and how can fix it


check all the hoses. next, check the water pump, should be behind the fan. If the bearings have gone bad in the water pump, it can sometimes leak coolant everywhere.

Leaks small amount of coolant, but I don't see


Check the engine oil, see if the level is going up and what the condition is. you can take the oil cap off and inspect under it. if there is a milky fluid then the antifreeze is leaking in to your engine crank case which is bad for the engine bearing. The other thing to also check is the transmission fluid. make sure that its till bright red and not over filled to make sure it's not leaking in to your transmission through the transmission cooler which is apart of the radiator too. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to help.
