00 Ford Escort leaking coolant

I have a 2000 Ford Escort and I noticed there was coolant leaking out of the bottom passenger side area. I took it into a repair place and the guy said it is a hose that runs from the radiator to the engine (rusted out). I had my boyfriend look into it and he was told that there are two hoses an upper and a lower hose. He purchased both and when he went to fix it he figured out that it wasn't coming from the hoses we had bought. I didn't think that this would have anything to do with the alternator but I thought it was weird that I just had my alternator replace last week and exactly a week later this happens. Any suggestions? Thank you.

2000 Impala leaks coolant out hose in firewall


It sounds like you're looking at the heater core water lines. These connect to the heater core supply and return inlet and outlet pipes to bring hot coolant into the cabin for heat and windshield deicing.

The heater core is a mini radiator and operates on the exact same principles as the radiator does. The heater core is located behind the dash board on the passenger side. Look for a wet spot of antifreeze on the passenger side floor area - close to the firewall for an indication of a leaky heater core. If it is leaking, it will likely need to be replaced. This can be a pricey repair.

Good luck!

The car is overheating when coming to stop, if I put the car in neutral while I am in the stopped mode the temperature will drop somewhat. The fans are working okay. Which is the pulley to release...


The pulley that releases tension is on the passenger side and has a 1/2" square breaker bar hole to put a 1/2" breaker bar (2 feet long) into that you can get from Sears or an auto parts store that sells tools.

I would check the fluid level in the overflow tank to make sure there is enough coolant in the system.

Then, I would consider having it flushed and filled with new coolant.

I would check for slow leaks out of the water pump area on the passenger's side. There is an oil and coolant cover gasket on the side of the engine that sometimes leaks in the vicinity of the water pump.

We have a 1998 Ford Taurus that had this problem, and it took a few hundred dollars to fix the leak.

Where do i put in th recharge coolent for the


There are 2 service valves on this modl of escort, one located on the right hand side of the radiator as you face the engine and one located next to the accumulator by the firewall on the passengers side. The high pressuresde is the one to the right of the radiator, and the suction side is close to the accumulator on the passengers side. Put freon in the passenger side next to the accumulator. The high pressure side is strictly for checking the head pressure, do not try to put freon in that side. Look for around 40 psi on the low side .. There are more technical ways to do this but this will get you into the right area. If you don't have a guage, add freon until the fan clutch quits cycling at fast idle.

Air Conditioner leaking into passenger side of 1999 Ford Escort. Need to locate drain line to clean it out...Found leaves and debris in barrel fan... how to keep keep leaves out... THANKS!


The water leaking is caused by the evaporator drain being stopped up. Look under the car in the area of the firewall on the passenger side and try to find the end of a rubber hose the water is supposed to drain from. Clear it out with air pressure.

The leaves will usually work their way in from the fresh air intake below the wipers. Keep it cleared off to prevent them from getting to the fan.
