if it's a bad leak, look with a trouble light. start on the floor, then go straight up from there. try to trace it to the source. otherwise, mechanics use a pressure tester to pump up the system while engine is cool. not exactly a cheap tool and some work far better than others. ( i have one and it's a piece of crap compared to others I've used) don't forget to check the floor under your dash in case your heater core is leaking. if you never see any leaks but you keep having to add coolant, the coolant is going inside your engine, either getting burned with the fuel or it's in the oil. but boy i hope not. check the oil, doesn't look like a chocolate shake does it? as far as fixing, it depends on what's leaking.

Can you put black pepper in your radiator to stop antifreeze from leaking out its a 2000 pontiac grand am?

Adding pepper to the cooling system can work at times. It is in no way a sure fire way of stopping a leak, and is definitely not a long term fix or even a good idea.Adding pepper to the cooling system can work at times.

How much bars leak head gasket and cooling sealant should you pour in a 1992 Lexus es300?

NONE!! These type products are emergency repairs and will not permanently fix a blown head gasket or cooling system leak. In fact they can cause problems later on. Do not use these type products at all. Have the problem repaired correctly with a permanent fix.

2000 Pontiac bonivelle with dual zones ac and heat when put to ac on both sides blows cold on psnr side and hot on driver side any suggestions?

I had the same problem on my 2000 Bonneville, its low on refrigerant in the AC cooling system which means it has a leak somewhere. Have the pressure in the AC cooling system checked by a professional. They can inject a dye into the system and check it with a black light to find where the leak is and fix it.

You have to find the leak in order to know what to fix. I would suspect you have a leaking radiator, but that is a guess based on your description.


How to fix leak in coolant system?

A leak in a coolant system can usually be fixed by replacing a hose. If the leak is at the end of the hose, a new clamp might be necessary. If the radiator is leaking, the radiator might need to be replaced.
