Question about 2005 Yamaha Royal Star Tour Deluxe

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Royal Star which has just started to leak anti-free

It only leaks after I have shut it off and come back an hour later. The anti freeze puddles at the base of the front cyl. head on the right hand side towards the front. It does not seem to leak while I'm riding, at least I do not smell it or see signs of it.

Will a broken water pump cause anti freeze to mix with oil and drip

Yes, your water pump attaches to the front of the engine block. If a leak opens up between the two, coolant goes into the crankcase along with oil. That means water and oil are being circulated through the bearings and cylinders of your engine. Don't drive it in this condition.

I have a 99 ford taurus, that was leaking anti-freeze. The problem was a freeze plug. The mechanic was able to replace it with a expandable core plug. But now a few months later it is leaking again. Can...

Once the plug is changed it should last for years, however if you over torque the expandable ones they can fail in a short time. Try having it replaced again and it should last a long time.

Leaking anti-freeze from the left side above the clutch bleeder nut

Make sure the radiator header is full. Start the engine cold, pull off #1 and #2 spark plug caps and watch where the coolant leak starts from ( if possible). Each cylinder has a plug which seals the water jacket from behind the spark plugs. These plugs are sealed by O rings and this is probably where the leak is coming from.

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.
