Does low coolant level and no pressure in the overflow tank mean coolant is leaking into the engine in a 98 olds intrigue?

maybe not. check engine oil for color and quantity. if oil is
white to grey, then there is coolant leaking into engine.no
pressure might be caused by bad radiator cap.this will also allow
coolant to escape

Asked in Auto Parts and Repairs, Dodge Ram
What could the problem be on a 97 dodge ram if antifreeze still leaks badly even after the thermostat has been replaced and the radiator and pump was pressurized by a professinal and found no leaks?
Where is it leaking? That pressure test sounds funny, why would you pressurize only the pump and radiator? If you are leaking coolant outside the engine, locate the source. If you are losing it from the radiator but cannot find a puddle suspect a head gasket problem. Check the Radiator cap first, if it is bad high pressure coolant will travel back to the overflow bottle.
Why would my radiator be losing coolant and look like it has oil in the coolant?
Heater core coolant overflow sable 1996?
Do you mean that your heater core is leaking coolant ? That would mean that the heater core is clogged. The heater core is like a mini-rad, if it is clogged it leaks. Answer No, there is not an overflow tube/outlet on the heater core. See "Related Questions" below for more about Taurus / Sable heating/cooling systems.
Why is coolant leaking from the bottom of the engine beneath the radiator?
Asked in Auto Parts and Repairs
What is wrong when the coolant keeps disappearing but not visibly leaking?
First, if you only look after it has disappeared, there is no coolant left to be leaking Second, coolant will often leak only under pressure, when it expands from being hot. This often happens when the car is moving, so cannot be observed, or escapes as steam. These leaks can be from small cracks in hoses, often under the clips; from pinholes in the radiator body; from under the pressure cap if the seal is badly worn. If some coolant is already missing, the remainder will heat up faster, setting up a viscious cylcle. In vehicles with an overflow bottle, overheated water goes to the bottle, to be sucked back later by the reduced pressure as the water cools again. In extreme overheating (boiling) the coolant can overflow the bottle, so less is available for sucking back later. Also if the hose to the bottle is cracked or loose, the reduced pressure will suck in air instead of water from the bottle. This leads to a situation where the radiator is quite low (so susceptible to fast overheating) while the overflow bottle contains water, so the user thinks there is enough water and never refills it. Coolant can also leak into the engine block, but this will not "keep" happening, as quite a small amount will cause the engine to stop functioning.
