Can a leaking radiator hose cause your car to have trouble accelerating?
Not unless the leaky hose is causing your engine to overheat, or caused it to overheat and a blown head gasket or warped head was the result. If either of those things happened then coolant getting into the combustion chamber wont burn and will come out the back as white smoke.
You used water in your leaking radiator for 2 monthscan this damage the thermostat in a caravan 2002?
Really need to know the year and engine size. But you can check this, Does your engine have 2 lines just above the oil filter that run up the side of the engine and goes into the radiator on the drivers side ? If so then that is the engine oil cooler lines and the tubes in the radiator were the oil flows through to cool the oil are probley leaking into the radiator coolant…
What is causing the antifreeze to leaking your 1998 Chevy lumina when there are not any spots on the ground?
to add to this, a big YES,on the radiator cap .the radiator cap needs to be specific pressure rating. radiator caps do wear out. also the cheapest fix to start It is doubtful a radiator cap would cause a car to overheat. Common overheating causes are insufficient coolant, leaking coolant (into or out of your engine), faulty thermostat, blown cooling fan fuse, faulty fan temperature switch ( sender ), faulty fan, or a faulty fan…
I am filling the radiator reservoir daily but it is not leaking from radiator however i can see it dripping from rear of engine block what is the cause of this?
Could be one or more of several problems.- leaking radiator or hoses, leaking water pump, leaking thermostat gasket, leaking head or intake gasket, leaking or low over-flow reservoir, leaking heater core, radiator drain cock not tight enough, bad radiator cap. Drops or puddles of antifreeze under the vehicle or in the engine compartment or on the carpet under the dashboard (usually passenger side) can often indicate where to look for leaks. White smoke from exhaust…
2000 Pontiac sunfire the coolant is leaking It leaks from the passanger side and appears to look like it is coming a bit behind the rad where could it be coming from?
What would cause a 1993 Chrysler Concorde to stall after accelerating a couple of times and then not restart?
What is the cause of air conditioning blower switching to defrost instead of dash when accelerating up hill on a 1998 dodge b1500 van Already tested for vacuum leak none found?
First, where is it leaking. If you smell coolant inside the car, the windows mist up with a "slimy" film, or the front carpet/floorboards are wet, you likely have a bad heater core-the "mini-radiator" under the dash that provides heat and defrost. Does the car leave green puddles where it is parked? It could be leaking from the radiator, hoses, or water pump-you have to look for green (or orange, depending on the type of…
Lots of possibilities. Here's what I can think up in a few minutes. Is the liquid visibly leaking out or just disappearing? Does it come out in bunches or in drips that show up on your garage floor? The radiator could leak through a seam, or due to corrosion in the main core. The heater core could be leaking. Leaking hoses. This could be the main radiator hoses, or the two that go to the…
What could cause oil in your coolant resivoir but no coolant in oil in a new engine in 2001 ford lightning?
I presume you mean car water pump? If the water pump is faulty the car will over heat and the temperature gauge will go up. Make sure that there is enough coolant in the radiator, the radiator or the hose pipe is not leaking and the radiator cap is not faulty, as all of these faults can cause overheating. Once you have excluded these then you can blame the water pump.
I keep losing antifreeze no leaks to be found oil looks good and no sign of it leaking on the floor what next 2000 impala?
If it is not leaking externally then it is leaking internally. The intake manifold gaskets are known to leak coolant into the engine on that vehicle. Have a trusted mechanic diagnose the problem soon because coolant mixing with engine (even in small amounts) oil will cause big trouble down the road.
Apart from a defective electric cooling fan state four other faults that could cause the engine to overheat?
Radiator, radiator cap, radiator hoses, water pump, coolant reservior and heater core are the more obvious areas. If you notice coolant in your oil it can be caused by a blown head gasket or damaged coolant sleeve in the head of the enging. If you cannot see any coolant leaks outside of the vehicle, check the floor mats on the interior. If you find coolant there, it more than likely is a heater core.
