How bad it is leaking? You certainly don't want to run a car with low transmission fluid as it will surely do internal damage. Most common leak areas are at the pan gasket or the transmission cooler lines that go to the radiator. Next most common areas are at the output shaft seals and around sensors or plugs on the transmission. If you replace any cooler lines with hose, make sure you use transmission hose. This will handle the pressure and the chemical resistance that other hoses will not stand up to. Also be sure to KNOW what transmission fluid is needed. One size does not fit all!

Antifreeze leak


The hoses could seem ok but have tiny cracks in them that you can't see if they were not replaced. With antifreeze the flange the hose goes on could be rusting from antifreeze and cutting the hose. Cut the end of the hose past the clamp mark if there is enough slack. and put back on. The clamp could either be too tight and cutting the hose on the metal flange or not tight enough. Squeeze the hose and if you see cracking in the hose replace it. Also, if you over fill it it could be a problem or you got a bad radiator. If it is a tiny leak in the radiator you can use radiator stop leak. http://picsbox.biz/key/radiator%20leak%20sealant. Check all the hoses and clamps and make sure the belt on the water pump is ok too. Good luck. They are a great car and worth the effort especially if you havea V6.

Hi Sharlene,so you smell antifreeze.Raise your hood and check your antifreeze over flow container,you should have a l and a h mark on it,high and low.If low,then it's leaking somewhere,look at the radiator cap and overflow hose for leak,look at over flow container for leak from hose going to it from radiator,look all over engine,look at top and bottom radiator hoses and clamps for leaks,if leaking there,tighten clamp with flat head screw driver,if no leak is found,get under vehicle and see if any antifreeze is visible,maybe water pump,look on ground for leak and follow,check floor board on driver side,heater core could be bad,check hoses going to heater core from engine firewall.

if your rubber hoses are cracked and leaking then replace the hoses with proper size and length.
if the hoses are leaking where they connect to the metal fittings from the heater core then try and tighten up the hose clamps -- they could just be loose.

Antifreeze overflow from tank


I would check for visible cracks and leaking at the overflow tank when the engine is cold, then when the engine is running and at operating temperature and not running and at operating temperature as well as during cool down. Also check the coolant overflow hose for leaks or obstructions inside the hose or if the hose is kinked. Check to make sure that the overflow tank cap is damage free and securely fastened.

How do u bleed the hoses from the radiator u can smell the antifreeze in the car need to know if it may be a hoses or something less


If you smell antifreeze inside the car then you probably have a bad heater core causing the coolant to leak inside you vehicle and giving you the antifreeze smell which will make you sick. If you windshield is all foggy and hard to clear and the right passenger floorboard is wet then your heater core is leaking.

You can drain the coolant out of your car by taking off the lower radiator hose. This will get most of the coolant out of your car. If you have a hose leaking under the hood you may smell coolant inside the car, but it shouldnt be too bad, if you have a leaking hose however it should be pretty obvious and your car may even be overheating.
