Bad water leak probably heater coil


Sometimes, not the heater coil...this leak usually smells inside the cabin...can you see anti-freeze build up anywhere? These motors are more prone to a water pump leak (needs replaced, inexpensive and not to difficult) or the intake manifold gasket...more costly about $400. for a mechanic to do...you should see some anti-freeze build up around the intake bolts...this assumes that there is no water in your oil...which is far more costly as this indicates an internal cylinder head leak...Could be just a hose leak...a bad radiator cap...or thermostat housing leak, (maybe a cracked housing? Help me help you...do you see any anti-freeze build up anywhere? Hope this helps.

There oil in my anti freeze reservior, what could it be?


General Motors had a problem with their lower intake gasket leaking oil into the coolant. If put off too long, it will turn into a blown head gasket and will likely need engine replacement. Take your vehicle to a professional to see if it's worth fixing the intake gasket or if it's gone too far already. It's recommended to replace your heater core, radiator, and flush the block.

If there are no coolant leaks then check your engine oil to be sure it is not over full or foamy because if there is coolant getting into the oil it will cause irreversible damage to the engine. If the engine has ever over heated the head gasket/s could also be leaking and will need replaced.

Anti-freeze leaking from either the freeze plug or intake gasket. I need possible solutions. Tone Mac


Without knowing what year or engine size is, I/m just guessing??????? But the 3.1L engines are FAMOUS for intake maniflod gaskets leaking. Look where the intake bolts to the heads. A freeze plug is in the block. Freeze plugs dont leak unless you have been running pure water or weak/cheap anti-freeze. They will rust out from behind and its BIG BUCKS to replace them all.

Antifreeze leaking from the back of the motor


Probably a intake manifold gasket leak. If you can see in the back part of the engine or know that the anti-freeze is leaking down the back on the transmission then on the ground then that is probably where it is coming from. The other place to check is the heater core which would be on the passenger side and see if where the hose come through the firewall that they are not leaking and running down and dripping on the ground. If your leak is on the intake manifold you will have get anther gasket and change the gasket which means removing about everything on top of the engine.

Leaking anti freeze from back of engine cannot see where the leak is it is not the heater hoses or the waterpump


It is possible that it may be the intake manifold leaking. If it is a 3.8 or 3.1 liter V-6 I would check the intake manifold gasket. These have a plastic gasket with silicone on each end that tend to crack and start leaking. you can normally see the leak behind the exhaust crossover pipe on the back side of the engine.

Leaking anti-freeze from back of motor onto exhaust-where would leak be most likely?


Rear crossover ports on the intake manifold, and/or freeze plugs at the rear of the engine. Also see if there is a hot water control valve for the heater in that area.

Leaking anti-freeze from my intake gasket


The corners of the intake manifold have coolant pasages. The lower intake manifold gasket will need to be replaced. There is an updated manifold gasket, manifold bolts, and torque specification. Call the chevrolet dealership and see if they will extend the warrant on this repair. It is a very common problem with this engine. Thanks Steve
