You'll need to pressure test your cooling system, you would need a pressure test that autozone can rent out with a deposit, pressure test system and you'll find the leak.Goodluck.

Where is the water coolant sensor located please?

The sensor is in the bottom of the coolant tank on the passenger side of the car. My low coolant light stayed on so I cut the wires and twisted them together. You cant buy just the sensor. You have to buy the whole tank. I dont have any coolant leaks so I just by passed the sensor.

I have a 2001 VW Beetle. I started the car and the engine light was blinking and coolant container was empty, added coolant and the next evening the light came on again. I noticed a leak on the front...

look for a leak from the drain hole under the pump housing, if no leak not a water pump
take the car to a radiator specialist shop and have a coolant pressure test done to determine where the leak is
if it has plastic tanks for the radiator , they split with time and leak under pressure and a pressure test will reveal exactly where the leak is unlike a guess

Leaking fluid under dash in car on passenger side also has load thumping noise when steering car into turns on the right side

You dont mention the year, make or model of your vehicle but generally a fluid leak on the passenger side interior is a coolant leak possibly from a defective heater core.Does it have a sort of sweet smell like antifreeze ? Also check under the hood to see if your engine coolant is low.

How do I find a coolant leak in my 2001 Dodge Intrepid 3.2L? It does not appear to be the hoses, but I notice the passenger side of the radiator is wet. Noticed puddle of coolant under passenger side of...

HI, The easiest way to find a cooling system leak to preform a pressure test. This test requires the use of some special equipment so I will just give you some common areas of these engines that leak. 1. check the upper radiator hose at the radiator. the plastic tank cracks sometimes. 2. check around the thermostat housing. 3. The worse for last there is a coolant passage tube that runs under the intake manifold almost impossible to see without taking things apart. but when it leaks the coolant seems to show up n the floor on the passenger side back by the firewall. I hope these help and you can locate the problem. Be careful when looking for these problems when the engine is hot you can get burnt. Good luck

Where is the low coolent sencer is there any way to test or clean

I have an 2002 Impala, which should be the same (What year is yours?). The coolant sensor is on the passenger side radiator tank, about 10 inches down from the radiator cap. on the engine side of the radiator.
I don't know how to test, but make sure your radiator is full, not just the plastic bottle.
I used to have the coolant light go on pretty regular. Under warranty, I think the dealer put in some fancy stop-leak. It hasn't been on since.

Fuel leaking from flexi pipe beside passenger rear

The only thing i can think of is, its a vent tube of some sort, but i can't understand why it comes out from under fuel tank, unless it runs from top of tank around under tank and back up and it looks like its commimg from bottom of tank.

Where is th low valve on the 2001 aurora 3.5

The anti freeze goes into the radiator, if the fluid level is really really low, otherwise it goes into the coolant expansion tank which is a black plastic tank on the passenger side of the vehicle, and will say engine coolant on it. You just pop the cap and fill to the line. Leave some room for the liquid to expand when it gets hot.
