This is what is called the guide plug leak. Not a big deal. Go to the Delphi All Aero forums and find out the how to fix. Do a temp quick fix, (Lasted me over 50,000 miles) or do permanent fix. Not a big deal. To stop the drip take a screwdriver and rotate it to the right until it hits the stop. Then do the fix. Dont go to stealership where they will take your money.

There is a crankcase plug just above the water pump hose, it is either not installed right or the o-ring is bad. You have to pull the water pump hose off to see it, but the plug simply twists and comes out, or if it loose try twisting it the other way and the leak will stop.

I have a 07 silverado with 39000 miles and i get a burnt fluid smell out of the heat vent after i drive it for a while and come to a stop nothing is leaking on the ground and runs fine


You might not see leaks if the fluid is leaking on the engine where it gets burnt off before dropping to the ground. That happened to me. Check all of the fluid levels. Engine oil, transmission oil, power steering oil and the antifreeze. Check when warm not hot, not cold. Pay special attention to the level and check once each day until you detect which is leaking.

Water leakin behind the motor


could leak water pump that what you did.

Water leak fro left side of engine


You might have either a blown head gasket or a crack in your engine block on that side of the motor. If you dont have any leaks from hoses, fittings or the water pump itself then mostly likely it is the head gasket, another way to confirm and make sure is to do an oil change, if there is chunky build up or sludge like discolorations due to coolant or water leaking into your oil then its the head gasket, and you'll need to definitely have it replaced or look into purchasing another vehicle. If theres no problems with your oil then its a leak from somewhere else. Possibley a heater hose or coolant line.

Possibility of a cracked block. how can i be sure/


Vehicles: Any with the above symptoms

A cracked cylinder block will cause either:
(a) motor oil contamination of engine coolant
(b) coolant contamination of motor oil
(c) white exhaust smoke, due to coolant seeping into one or more cylinders.
(d) more than one of the above
(e) all of the above

Oil infiltrating into coolant is easy to see - drain some coolant out through the pepcock at the bottom of the radiator, and place it into a styrofoam coffee cup. Oil droplets floating on top of the green (or orange) coolant are easily seen. Or visualize oil by looking into the top of the radiator through the radiator cap.
Coolant infiltrating into and mixing with motor oil will permanently damage the engine (seizing it up through loss of lubrication), and must be prevented.
A leak from above the front suspension is, as physicians like to put it, "nonspecific", with the most likely cause a water pump seal or hose/hose connection.
A leak from near the fire wall will usually be a heater core hose, or hose connection.
A coolant leak on the same side of the engine as the water pump is a leaking water pump or water pump seal until proven otherwise.

To rule out everythng else, here's the 1999 Honda CR-V Troubleshooting Guide for Coolant Loss/Coolant Leaking:

Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect Water Pump - Worn, Cracked or Leaking Water Pump, or Water Pump gasket.
2 Inspect Head Gasket - Leaking Head Gasket.
3 Inspect Radiator - Leaking Radiator Hose(s).
4 Inspect Radiator Cap - Worn or Damaged Radiator Cap.
5 Inspect Radiator Hose - Ruptured, Cracked or Leaking Radiator Hose.
6 Inspect Freeze Plug - Leaking Freeze Plug(s).
7 Inspect Intake Manifold Gasket - Leaking, Worn, or Damaged Intake Manifold Gasket.
8 Inspect Water Outlet - Cracked, Leaking or Damaged Water Outlet.
9 Inspect Heater Control Valve - Leaking or Faulty Heater Control Valve.
10 Inspect Radiator Drain Pepcock - Loose, Damaged, or Faulty Radiator Drain Pepcock, or Pepcock O-ring.
11 Inspect Engine (DOMESTIC ONLY) - Cracked Cylinder Block Leaking Coolant into at least one Cylinder, causing white exhaust smoke.

After driving half a mile my 1998 vw polo open air started smoking from engine stopped car and noticed oil on parts that wasnt there previous have not noticed oil underneth before this insident also has...


Was the smoke white? if so it is probably your head gasket you can still save it if you want as long as the head isnt cracked as well then it probably just isn't worth fixing and from the sounds of it sorry to say but I cant be sure with out seeing it

Two thing's one when i turn on my heat i don't get heat. Two i am alway's putting water in it. I just bought it


Hi having no heat would suggest the thermostat is stuck closed and will need replacing, how ever the really bad news is that if you dont see any water leaking onto the floor or around the engine then this points towards head gasket failure, the thermostat failing would have caused the engine to over heat and this would have caused the head gasket to fail.

Have a good look for a leak as this is the cheapest solution, make sure you check all hoses and rad for signs of water leaking, if you find no signs then the only other way you could lose water is via the head gasket, if you cant see water leaking then it can only be going into the engine, either into the oil or being burned out through the exhaust.

check you oil level stick for signs of a white substance if you have this then the water is getting into the oil via head gasket if the oil looks fine then the chances are the water is being burned off in the cylinder.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

My car is leaking antifreeze and overheating


MOST OF THE TIME WHEN CAR IS LEAKING ANTIFREEZE.CHECK ALL RADIATOR HOSES AND AROUND THE RADIATOR ON THE SIDES AND FRONT AREA WHERE COOLANT FAN IS.BUT BE CAREFUL DONT PUT HAND NO WHERE AROUND COOLING FAN.BECAUSE IT COULD COME ON WHILE YOUR HAND IS NEAR YOU CAN GET INJURED.ALSO CHECK AROUND WATER PUMP GASKET AND WEEP HOLE FOR LEAKING.IF YOU FIND NO LEAKS THEN YOUR HEAD GASKET LEAKING.CHECK ENGINE OIL IF OIL LOOK LIKE MILK SHAKE YOU HAVE HEAD GASKET LEAK.

I need to change the water pump. also if the water pump is leaking will this stop the engine from starting


no, leaking water pump just means it is time to replace your pump. Not continue driving until you get around to it. replace it now. If it is not starting something esle is wrong. Unless you've over-heated the engine.
