Yes most likely it is. Theres a small hole on most water pumps when they start failing antifreeze will begin to leak out this hole. when the pump is moving faster the fluid doesn't have a chance to leak.

2002 chevy cavalier 2.2 engine steady stream of coolant from the front of the engine while the engine is off. As I pour it in the fluid streams out. Hoses are fine. I replaced the water pump, and i


has the thermostat been changed lately? did the fluid leakage start about that time? check the thermostat housing and the heater hoses. i would also check that the correct gasket was used on the water pump. it is not unheard of to get the wrong gasket with the water pump. they may look right but a small difference can make all the difference. is it the correct water pump? are all the bolts on the water pump tightened properly?

2003 pontiac grand am bleeding the cooling system


Look on your exhaust manifold. What you are looking for is a little bleed screw. Mine is painted blue. Yours maybe a different color. When you find it start your engine and let it idle for 3-5 minutes. Make sure your heat is turned on full. With the enging running turn bleed screw counterclockwise till water starts shooting out. Let the water continue to shoot out until you get a steady stream. Once you get that steady stream then tighten. Your system is now bled.

Car heater blows hot air while driving, but not while idling at a light or in park.


Sounds like you still have air in the system. What engine do you have? There should be a bleeder valve on a housing on the engine where the upper hose attaches.

Fill the reservoir with coolant and open the bleeder valve. Start the engine and let idle. Close the bleeder when a steady stream of coolant comes out. Continue to let the engine idle while periodically opening the bleeder valve to check for air. Keep the coolant level full while the engine is running. Once the fans come on the air should be bled out and the radiator cap can be reinstalled. Snapping the throttle a couple of times will also help push air out of the cooling system.

After adding water to radiator, and idle till it warm up , it's spit the water back out, oil is clean chevy 97 lunima 3.1


hi.

water expands as it warms up, so spitting a little back out is normal.
what you must check for is a steady stream of bubbles coming out of the filler when the car is ticking over. a steady stream of small bubbles would suggest a blown head gasket.
if there are no bubbles in the cooling system, make sure the coolant is up the the maximum mark on the reservoir. then run the car for a day or two, keeping a check on the coolant levels. as long as the level does not go below the minimum marks, then you should be ok.

just to make sure... almost all cars need to run on a mix of water and antifreeze/summer coolant.
amount of antifreeze can vary, but 25% antifreeze will cover most situations..

hope this helps

There is a water leak on the passenger side just in front of the firewall. It is a steady stream when I fill the radiator even when the engine is off. No water in the passenger compartment.


The heater core may be leaking or a coolant line near the firewall. The fact that the inside isn't wet doesn't mean it is not a heater core problem, as the plastic catch pan may redirect fluid to the firewall 'weep' hole.

Coolant leak at the front of the engine


The water pump is located along the left side of the engine underneath the plastic covers. You coolant leak is most likely a radiator hose.

Leaking antifreeze and it's not a pipe or the water pump


May require vehicle on hoist or at least on ramps, and a flashlight/troublelight to see exactly where its coming from. Could be just a frost plug, but until you can pinpoint the spot, don't drive it, or run it for that matter & cost yourself more money.
