SOURCE: 1999 kia sephia leaking antifreeze

I have a 97 Sephia with what sounds like the same configuration. The tube is for the heater and there is an "O" ring on the metal tube that goes bad over time. You can replace the gasket by removing the metal tube from the engine, or the water neck and replace the o ring.

SOURCE: pontiac gp 02 overheating

thermostat should be replace on over heated engine, the spring loses tension, probaly not problem, most like head gasket if over heated severly, if you have a air pocket & wornt purge thats one sign,press test on cold engine let sit at start up run slightly rough may see & smell coolant at tail pipe, could also pull plugs may have one wet all crude checks, there is also chemical you put in coolant & use a a stripe for combustion I think napa or snap on sells, alsoyou could do tear down & inspection wish you luck not sure what engine or car you have grand am or grand prix my guess a GP with poss 3.4 more likely then 3800 engine

SOURCE: im losing anti freeze i looked under the car and

If the engine is the same as the 2002 Impala 3.8L engine, the problem is most likely cracked connectors where the coolant enters the engine block. There are two L-shaped plastic connectors that connect the coolant lines through the metal block attached to the tensioner arm to the engine block. Common problem and parts are available from the dealer for under $20, but takes several hours of disassembling and specific torque specs. Just replaced mine over the summer.

SOURCE: ANTIFREEZE leaking down off oil pan. I do not see

If your hoses are intact, it still may be the water pump. When the seals fail, there is a small diameter hole at the bottom of the pump which will start to seep so it just answers to gravity and the oil pan is the lowest part.

Changed engine gaskets and upper intake manifold after antifreeze mixed with the oil and plastic manifold was no good. now I fill te radiator after repair and water goes right to the crankcase and oil pan.


Some where you have lost integrity of the cooling system allowing it to enter the crankcase. If the coolant goes directly into the oil, the problem should be obvious. If you send the year, make and model I may be able to help you locate it. If it overheated, the cylinder head may have cracked.

Water or antifreeze leaking from a different area other than the radiator. replaced the radiator and thermostat.


The easiest thing to do is get it pressure tested. That will show the leak right away. If not make sure that you check the area of the water pump, when they go bad, the bushing starts to wear and there is a WEEP hole that drips.

2000 3.4 v6. i replaced head and manifold gaskets water pump,thermostat.about a month after it would overheat,i would fill it with water ,it would be fine ,now months later it overheats all the time,fans...


It sounds like you have a clogged radiator. You need to flush it out . If it won't unclog you will need to replace it. Sometimes if you ever use stop leak in your radiator, you need to flush that out if you ever replace anti freeze or add more stop leak. Remove radiator cap and start car and let it warm up to operating temp. Fill radiator where you can see the fluid with cap off. While looking at antifreeze gently give the engine a little gas and see if the antifreeze circulates by going down. If it doen't then it is either water pump, thermostat or a plugged up radiator. Good luck.

1999 mercury grand marquis occasionally overheats, leaks around radiator cap, makes gurgling noise on passenger side. Have replaced heater core, water pump, thermostat, hoses,& radiator cap.


Check the antifreeze for oil, pull your dipstick out, see if antifreeze is in oil or smells sweet or over full, sounds like you may of a bad head gasket. You can also check this by having a compression test done on the cylinders.

My truck is not warming up as fast when the heater is on and it takes a while for my temp. gauge to move


Time to replace the Thermostat and Radiator Cap, if the cooling system has not been serviced, you may want to replace the coolant with a 50/50 mix water/antifreeze. Make sure it's 50/50, to much antifreeze will gel up and to much water will freeze or boil over. If your not sure how to mix the antifreeze, you can buy the pre mixed.

Replacing fluids 0n 1996 300zx


radiator antifreeze: open drain **** on radiator and drain refill with water re plug and leave radiator cap off. start vehicle. watch when coolant drops or rises drastically as that is the thermostat opening. at that time re open drain **** and fill radiator with hose water at the same time. when water coming out is completely clear again turn vehicle off and drain radiator again. fill with antifreeze and water mix. 50/50

oil: jack up car, find oil plug, directly behind steering rack on oil pan. undo plug and drain oil into container. while oil is draining remove oil filter. wait for oil to drain completely then re-install drain plug and new oil filter(filled with oil) undo oil cap and pour in oil 4.5 quarts on n/a and 5 for turbo. tighten cap and your done.

brake system: dont attempt, use an experienced mechanic as the lines need to be bled in numerous places including inside the car from the abs module mounted behind the passenger seat.
easy brake system: individually bleed brakes while adding fluid until clear fluid comes out. (not efficient)

a/c: do not attempt unless you have an evac pump for ac systems.

clutch: same as easy brake except using the bleed valves at the slave cylinder and on passenger side fender well.

washer fluid: add fluid and squirt a little to make sure there is no air in the line

Saturn sc1, oil leaking into antifreeze


We just went through the same thing on our 1997 SC1, replaced the head gasket and the oil in the coolant issue persisted.

Pulled a cylinder head out of a 1995 wagon and put it in, the problem has cleared up after a LOT of flushing with powered automatic dishwasher machine detergent and water. We also replaced the upper and lower radiator hoses, thermostat and water pump once the flushings were complete.
