1998 Chevy Malibu 3.1 LV6 have replaced the Intake gasket last year This year yet again it is still leaking Coolant into the engine Is there anything that you can do to prevent this from happening?
The intake manifold are very bad about corroding a hole in them which means that you will have to replace it
If your heater core is LEAKING engine coolant so that your engine coolant level drops too low or the engine coolant is lost completely and causes your engine to overheat then your engine can be damaged beside the mess the leaking coolant makes inside your vehicle ( you might be able to just temporarily bypass the heater core so that no engine coolant is flowing through the heater core )
What is probable cause of transmission fluid contaminating engine coolant 2000 Taurus 3.0 ohv 12 valve?
I would have to guess that your radiator has a hole in it. Look andd see if your transmission lines go to a tank on the radiator. If this is the case then the radiator will have to be replaced. You transmission line is leaking oil into the coolant. Is there also coolant in the transmission? This is the only way that I can see this happening. Now if you were just having coolant in…
The thermostat might need to be replaced. or the coolant level mite be low. it is a sign that it is. and also the type of coolant used if not flushed and replaced tends to clog the heater core. try flushing it out. lastly you have a bad intake gasket and leaking coolant out. 4.3's are notorious for this.
I have had my water pump replaced on my 1999 Buick Century. Why would it be making a bubbling noise and leaking coolant?
coolant leaking from around the valve cover can mean two diffrent things. ether the intake gaskets need to be changed or the head has a crake in the water jacket and need to be replaced. this also would involve removal of the intake and the heads. make sure the coolant it leaking around the intake before you go that far it might simply be the quick disconect were on of the heater hoses gos in…
It can be one of 3 things. My first guess would be a leaking heater core considering the area where it is leaking. Are you sure this is water and not coolant. If it tastes sweet or is slick to the touch, it is coolant and you have a leaking heater core that must be replaced. Secondly it can be the windshield seal that is leaking. And 3rd it may be that the drain holes…
What is happening when the coolant reservoir is overpressurized and starts leaking from the cap Is this a thermostat problem or cooling fan switch problem?
How do you keep the air conditioner from leaking inside the front passenger floor board of a 1998 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo?
If it is just plain water, then you have either a leaking windshield or more than likely a stopped up A/C drain line. Look under the car passenger side and find the drain line and unclog it. If, on the other hand you have coolant leaking, then you have a leaking heater core, which must be replaced. Taste and smell the liquid. If it smells and taste sweet it is coolant and not just water.
Yes, coolant can leak from the engine. If it's hot outside and you're running the Air Conditioner (AC) and you back up and see a liquid on the ground, it's probably condensation from the AC unit. Or, it could be collant leaking from the engine. How old is the car? Do you consider radiator hoses to be part of the engine? Radiator hoses should be replaced every 3-5 years, especially if there are bulges, or…
You need to explain more on where exactly the coolant is leaking. There are several possible reasons why your coolant is leaking. If it's from your main hoses that lead to and from the engine or radiator, you need to check the condition the hoses are in. If they're in a decent condition, it's not that. If it's leaking around where the hoses are connecting, it's probably not tight enough, or there is possibly a…
The head gasket has failed and will need to be replaced. The head gasket seals the place where the engine block and the cylinder head meet, there are many oil and coolant passages in that area, so when the gasket blows out the coolant in the nearby passage vents into the cylinder closest to the failure point.
The head gasket sits between the head and the engine block if it is leaking out where you can see the coolant, yes you can smell the coolant if it is leaking into the engine no you cannot smell the coolant. You can check the oil to see if it has coolant in the oil if it does then the head gasket might be blown.
You should able to tell if it's leaking so I assume that you are not seeing any coolant where you park so it's a good chance you got a blown head gasket and the coolant is leaking in your cylinders and being burned off or leaking into your oil. Check your oil after running and if it is foamy it has coolant in it.
1995 Sunfire coolant is leaking from area located under steering column have already replaced thermostat and coolant in reservoir tank is full also noticed coolant smell in interior of car when heaton?
If you are getting coolant inside the car your Heater core is leaking but if only smelling coolent. The hose on the exterior maybe the issue and it maybe that the sound blanket in that area where the ends of the heater core pass thru the firewall is asborbing coolent hence the smell. This should give you a starting point hope it helps.
What if your 1992 Chevy silverado is leaking engine coolant from the top of the engine just below the distrubutor what is leaking?
There is a heater hose that goes to the left rear top side of the intake manifold and that fitting leaks engine coolant sometimes and it will run down the back of the intake around the distributor. If that fitting is not leaking then the intake manifold gasket is leaking coolant in the corners of it. REplace the intake gasket. That's all that can leak coolant on that year engine. If coolant is leaking out…
