I assume you're having a coolant problem with your vehicle. If you are not finding any indications of leaking coolant and you have replaced the radiator cap and filled the radiator with antifreeze ... Pull the oil dip stick and look at the color and consistency of the oil. Is it a whitish milky color? If so, your engine has a blown head gasket and that's were the coolant is going. Also, check the air intake holes on the manifold. If you see any signs of leaks, the gaskets need replacing.

Hope this helped to further aid you in troubleshooting the problem.

How can i ell if my water pump is failing

over heating has many causes.
what are the signs, just the gauge going high. ?
steam shooting out rad cap. (is the cap even good>?)
side recovery tank, blasting? with hot water and steam.
oil in the RAD neck , (cold engine) RAD=Radiator assembly.
antifreeze "AF" in the engine oil>? (dip stick looks like milkchocolate?
leaks to the ground, from what?? (find it)
does the RAD fan come on , overheated, It must. does it?
is the RAD core clean? outside, ? not packed with bugs and leaves.
the #1 failure part is the thermostat. put in a new one. and cap.
they are cheap . and easy to change out both cap and STAT.
are you running 50% AF? , using the Prestone $2 tool for the test?
AF raises the boiling point of water, to 260?F
the cap holding pressure and the AF both raise it that high.
if car does not over heat, moviing, only, nows that time to say so..
get in car, cold , drive did it overheat with no stop signals?
(moving gives free air flow to the RAD, proving it works)
Use the radiator leak down tool. to see of loop is beached.
Use the Exhaust gas detector tool at RAD cap to see if the head gasket is blown.

how do you know the pump is. bad.
1: it leaks
2: the impeller is dust.
3:ITS pulley wobbles like mad.

my answer, the pump is after all other test pass.
including a RAD core, thermogram
i can check each rad tube 1 by 1, in fact i threat my RAD
as 10 or more tiny radiators (it is)
see 50 mile test here, RAD cores
They get 34f degree tube drops.. each tube must drop or its clogged.
all for a $15 tool and no burned fingers.
measure each tube about 2inch from top of tank and bottom
and both tanks. (this test is very revealing)

Water leak coolant

id put it on the shelf. but i do know desperation, been there done that.

in the rad neck hole.

the can tells you what to do, did you not read the can side????????

1;dead cold engine.

2: open rad cap

3: put in bars leaks. (nasty stuff to put in any engine. id not)

put back cap and pray.

it can work for short time. if stranded,, but it will fail again.

it can not replace what is bad. never. ever.

its a bandaid.

ps, some engines have no rad, cap, but have a tank with a RAD

cap on this TANK, (4.0L jeeps had this)

im a jeep guy and japanese jeep.(suz)

so where is that leak

on the ground

or in the engine oil pan, motor oil look like milk chocolate?

remove dip stick see end? see oil there? and not clear amber?

Van keeps shutting off on its own and overheating

you mean the engine, overheats then the engines stalls.?
that latter symptom is normal for overheating.

(some exceptions, ) my Corvette drops cylinders, 1 by 1 to stop
this.(but is still bad , if this happens)

does it overheat only stopped, only moving or both? (KEY question)

fix the over heat, cause. there are may ways to overheat.
from simple to comlex. and no web bunny on earth can guess it.
ill list the simple:
1: low on coolant, no not the side tank, the actual rad is low,
check only on dead cold engine,below 125F (AZ temp)
2: bad RAD cap. not holding pressure.
3: wrong coolant mix or mixing 1 color coolant with another (bad)
4: water pump belt bad , or slipping or missing.
5: rad tubes clogged
6: fan dead,
7: RAD outside ofcore, blocked with filth.
8: blown head gasket,(or far worse)
9: bad water pump.
10: leaks anywhere, (this really is first)

one site that lists them all , every one,... is

Replace small hose and clamp, that hose come's from your transmission, goes through another tank in the radiator, to keep the transmission fluid cool, hope this was very helpful.

Have a 2001 dakota sport 6 cyl. and have coolant dripping from bottom of water pump.found loose bolt on bottom and tightened it.drove around at first no leak,then heater blowin cold air,then shut off...

Gasket probably will not seal now, and if your going to have to remove water pump to replace it, you might as well put a new pump on as well. The reason for heater cutting in and out, is probably just due to low coolant, and air got into system. When cool, remove rad cap,start engine, and turn heater on while letting it get up to operating temperature, and top up rad as needed, until you see increased flow in rad indicating thermostat has opened and coolant is circulating. Watch for that a couple of times, then put rad cap back on, and top up return bottle to proper level as well. That should get your heat back.

I have a rad fluid leak that is spraying onto the alternator and belts . the rad itself is not leaking and the hoses appear fine could this be the water pump ?

It is possible that there is a leak from either the water pump housing or pulley seal. You can also have a leak from a bad radiator cap

I have had car put under pressure to check for

You could just be burning it up. Do you have accesive white smoky exhaust?
Have you filled radiator completely. Fill completely once while vehicle is running, burp upper radiator hose while adding. Then wait 10 minutes and the coolant level should drop in radiator as it will flow into engine block. This is where you want to fill the system again, and put the cap on.

95 Dakota overheats

the black chunks could possibly be from someone putting a stop leak solution into the radiator first drain the coolant system fill up with clean water put in some Prestone 10 minute flush and then drain and put in a flush tee in the heater hose not the one going to the water pump but the one going to the engine block open up the drain hose and run water through until clear and refill with new antifreeze and make sure car runs until all air bubbles are out and then replace the cap
