You give no information on what kind of bike you own for me to mentally visulize it. However if you are speaking of what appears to be an open ended drain hose hanging down from the motor, follow the hose and if it goes into the engine near the waterpump this is what is commonly referred toas a "tattle tale" hose and is indicating by the leak that you waterpump seal is bad and will require waterpump rebuild or replacement

SOURCE: 2003 crf 450 leaking coolant from hole from the bottom of the case under the water pump. What does this indicate?

It means your water pump seal is seeping at this point. Eminent failureportended. Replace water pump. Seals on pumps usually fail because of bearing wear, so this is a precursor to pump shaft failure. Good luck

SOURCE: Coolant leaking from radiator cap while running. No other leaks.

Hi I am Vortash I hope this is just a faulty cap or seal but it could be signs of something more sinister check your oil for contamination ( emulsification oil in water turns white at temprature ) it could mean you have a head gasket problem starting or indeed happening as preassure is building and blowing the coolant out .. hope for your sake I am totally wrong and it is just a faulty cap .. regards vortash

SOURCE: coolant leaking

sounds like a gasket is leaking check your engine oil and make shure no coolant in there ,will float on top of oil and fog sight glass if fitted. do not use bike if so. it may be a long shot but look at the rad cap if also on the left. it may be leaking on the go when hot under pressure , change for piece of mind, money is never wasted on safety features .finally check other side of engine as leak may be running from one side to the other.

How do I know if I need a new water pump?


there is little weep hole under your water pump and coolant will leak out of it once it needs to be replaced. Your water pump will sometimes make an awful high pitched squeal without leaking which in that case would also require replacing. I'd also suggest checking heater hoses because they can also leak.

Leaking coolant


Is the coolant clean that leaks out? Have you put a newspaper under the car to try and isolate the leaks location by the drip stains? Likely spots are the engine water pump and hose connection points at have worked loose. If the leak seems to come from the rear of the engine it may be a leaking heater core, in that case you should have a kind of sweet smell (the smell of vaporized coolant) in the cabin when the heater is on.

IF YOU GOT TOO MUCH WATER IN COOLANT SYSTEM AND DONT HAVE 50 / 50 MIXTURE OF ANTIFREEZE AND WATER. WATER WILL EVAPORATE BOIL AWAY.CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS LOOK AT TOP AND BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSES LEAKS, CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS AROUND BOTH RADIATOR CONTAINER AND RADIATOR CORES LEAKING. CHECK WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE. IF LEAKING WATER NEED REPLACING, CHECK ENGINE CRANKCASE ANTIFREEZE WILL LEAK IN CRANK CASE OR LEAK IN THE INTAKE GASKET COOLANT WILL BURN WITH FUEL.MANY THINGS WILL CAUSE COOLANT LOST.

Dodge Durango water hose leak


Not sure what hose you are talking about, but if it is a small hose that goes to the over flow tank you need to replace it. No matter which hose it is in this case it needs to be replaced, and any coolant (anti-freeze) needs to be replenished. You will keep loosing coolant until it is fixed. The coolant system is under pressure and will push out any coolant that is left in the system. This is like oil the engine needs to function properly.

Your auto is definitely loosing coolant and will overheat. Check your thermostat, hoses, belts, radiator cap and water pump. If you do not fix the leak or coolant circulation problem you can destroy your engine. The smell inside can be being picked up from the outside vent or it could be your heater core inside the ventillation area leaking (which could be your coolant leak).. If that is the case you will need to replace the heater core.
