I have a 2001 Chevy Silverado my windows fog up after 30 mins of driving and the low coolant light comes on but I have changed the the water pump and heater core and thermostat please help

Windows fogging up is usually an indication of leaking coolant inside of the truck cab. Its possible you might not have tightened the connections properly for the hoses going into the heater core. (Low coolant light coming on is no surprise, since after some time of leaking coolant near or at the heater core, the level will drop to a point where its low and cause the failure light to come on.). See if you can make a visual inspection of the area near the heater core, you might have to remove some interior panels.

My 1996 chevy silverado started leaking water what does that mean

Find the leak. Fill it, drive it, let it sit. The leak will be close to where it comes from. Radiator will be at the front of the truck, under the radiator. Water pump will be at the front of the engine, could be left or right depending on what it flows off of. Heater hoses will leak at the back. You just have to get under the truck and follow the water lines to the source. Or at least close to it. Fix it or you may have to replace the engine because of overheating..

I have a heater core leak on my 2000 chevy silverado V6, is there an easy fix?

You can bypass the heater core, you just wont have heat anymore. On the firewall of the truck, behind the engine, you will see 2 rubber heater hoses that go into the firewall. They attach to the heater core. Disconnect them and get a plastic connector, and connect the 2 hoses together with clamps to hold them down. This will stop coolant from going into the heater core, and no more leak.

I have a mitsubishi mirage,a water has appear at

If you can see the leak and it is the hose it is an easy fix. If the leak can't be traced to the hose it is your heater core, which would need to go to a mechanic. If this has helped you, please leave me good feedback.

Heater Core Leaking 2001 GMC Sierra 5.3. I have a strong antifreeze smell in the cab and this morning the heater fogged up the windows. I have read that replacing the heater core also involves evacuating...

you could quick fix! but you will have no heat, 1st under the hood, look at the back of motor, follow all you're radiator hoses, take two hoses off the heater core stick a pipe that is big enough then clamp the pipe down. to both sides of hoses to the pipe you will eventually have to replace heater core!!

Water in oil

Hello, it seems that you have intake gaskets leaking. I'll bet you have the vortec 350. This is a common problem with the vortec, Gm uses plastic intake gaskets and they blow out over time usually to the externally but yours is internally.It is a pretty easy fix for the average mechanic to do. Thank you

Air leak in cab

Air leaks are usually difficult to find by yourself... Have someone drive along with you and feel the incoming air, back to it's source. Depending on what & where the leak is, generally it can be fixed with either duct tape or "dum-dum" (a kind of non-hardening compound that can be obtained at any body shop which is also used on water leaks and body noises.)
Good luck
