Leaking water from top of motor

Tale the truck to a shop and have the cooling system pressurized to see where the coolant is coming from is my advice. They do leak at the heater hose above the passenger side rear most cylinder, remember water is clear and coolant is green or yellow or reddish colored and feels slimy to the touch, water is of course clear..

I have a leak on left side front what could it be?

What kind of leak? Is it a clear liquid like water condinsation coming from the air conditioner?
Or is it grean or reddish like antifreeze? Is your water temp. lite coming on or gauge running hot?
Is it a dark thick liquid like oil or transmission fluid? Have you checked your oil level?
Tell us more about the leak, what does the fluid look like? Is it a lot like a puddle or little drips?
Need as much information as possible

2001 grand cherokee coolant contaminated with reddish oily substance. What could be the problem and how can I fix it?

You need to pull your oil dipstick and see if there is any indication of water/coolant on the dipstick. If there is, then it could be either a blown head gasket or a cracked block. If you see ANY indication of water on your dipstick, then I would suggest you go to your local auto parts store and buy a tester to check for combustable gases in the coolant, to verify it.

I try to move the flywheel to left end right. End don't move for pontiac fierro 1984 what is the problems

Sounds like the engine is siezed or is suffering from a liquid lock. Liquid lock occurs when one or more of the cylinders becomes filled with fluid. Air / fuel mixture can compress but liquid can not. Check the oil and coolant. If there is any water in the oil or oil in the water, then you most likely have a head problem. Could be simple as bad head gasket or could be cracked head. The only way to truly find out is disassemble the engine.

Reddish liquid leaking from under front right axle. coolant light on and off

Your vehicle uses GM Dex-Cool from the factory which is a coolant that is red in color. You more than likely have a leak so the system is low and therefore the coolant light is acting up.

There are several Technical Service Bulletins on this year Saturn for intake manifold gasket leaks for one, but it could be from a lot of places.

Washing the engine and letting it dry, then running it the next day and hunting around with a flashlight may help pinpoint the problem area. Check hose clamp areas of course.

For difficult leaks they make a Dex-Cool compatible UV Dye that can be seen with a UV light at a repair shop.

best wishes!

Water dripping right front underneath

Is what the liquid plain water or coolant (water mixed with antifreeze). touch and smell the liquid, no smell = water, antifreeze smell and oily feel = coolant.
If plain water, could be Air Condition condensation dripping from condensation drain which is normal. (this drain is usually located near the center of the vehicle).
If coolant, could be leak(s) from: radiator, radiator hose, heater hose, water pump, engine freeze plug. A coolant system pressure test should show what is leaking.

What engine coolant do i use for a 2000 for focus

It does not matter which coolant you use in this system, as long as you do not mix the two different types. If you are just adding coolant to the existing coolant, if it is green in color use regular antifreeze/coolant, reddish/pink use extended life coolant. If you are not sure, I recommend draining the system, flushing with water and then adding whichever type you choose.

1991 Lincoln Town car overheating

The year of the vehicle, rusty liquid, and overheating, says your radiator could use a replacement. If it was your water pump, you would have liquid coming out of the water pump itself.

Sounds like your Heater Matrix/Core is weeping, the brown stuff is possibly a leak sealer which someone before used to stop it.
You could try some more? remember to bleed the coolant as an air lock is possibly causing your overheating.
Park on level, when cold remove cap, start leave to idle when hot it should bubble over, top up with very warm water, wait it may do it again.
When happy pop in your leak sealer and hopefully your sorted.
Good luck! and please remember to rate my effort.
