1 coolant boiling away due to overheating . 2 external or internal leakage ( leaking head gasket )( cracked head or cylinder bor ) ( loose cylinder heah bolts ) 3 faulty radiator cap. and if youre sure its a water pump thing grab the pump and try to shake it if you can the pump is bad and coolant would also be leaking out the weep hole at the front which is designed to leak when the pump goes bad
It is possible that the gasket could leak between cylinders. The overheating and coolant loss would happen if the gasket was failing around the coolant passages.
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.
The Intake gasket is leaking, NOT THE HEAD GASKET. Replace the intake gasket
Probably a blown head gasket/warped head, cracked head or cracked block.
Could be a number of reasons: low coolant, defective radiator, leaky hoses, blown head gasket...
Drain about 1 gallon of coolant from the radiator Remove thermostat housing Clean both surfaces Replace gasket Re-install housing Re-fill coolant slowly to prevent an airlock Start engine and look for leaks Run engine to normal operating temperature with heater on Re-check coolant level
Low Coolant. Poor coolant circulation. Intake gasket. Head gasket.
Oil in the coolant tank indicates a head gasket leak.
The coolant will normally leak into the oil or into the cylinder
Leaks can be wherever two surfaces meet as coolant passes by.Water pumpHose connectionsHeater coreCracked radiator capBlown head gasket
check your coolant levels & if car overheating, might well be the cylinder head gasket is away.
one of the reasons why an automobile shutts off after overheating is that the head gasket may blown, hence letting the coolant in the chambers.
One of many reasons, blown head gasket. Coolent getting into crankcase(oilpan).
A head gasket will usually fail when the engine overheats due to lack of coolant or extreme driving conditions. The easy way to check your head gasket for leaks ect. is to check the condition of your coolant and oil via the dipsticks, if your head gasket has failed your coolant and/or oil will be a creamy white colour.
fist of all.. no. if your coolant hose is leaking then you will probably run out of coolant and blow a head gasket and you don't want that.second of all i have a question for you:is your coolant hose leaking or are you just losing coolant all the time? if your hose isn't leaking, then is possible you have a blown head gasket or a cracked block or a blown head gasket, and either of those two will cause ur spark plug too look nasty when u take it out, but there are also many different reasons why your spark plug could corrode.
You need a head gasket.
gasket wears out in time. leaking coolant is the result of a bad gasket not the cause of it.
The most common cause of a blown head gasket is an over heating engine. Low coolant or coolant not circulating through the engine causes the engine to heat up and the gasket to fail.
Could be a multitude of reasons: Low coolant, defective radiator, leaky hoses, blown head gasket...
Could be one of three reasons - 1) low coolant, 2) defective cooling system, 3) blown head gasket
You can tell if you're head gasket has been compromise by looking into the coolant reservoir, with the engine running. When the head gasket is compromised there will be air bubbles in the coolant reservoir.
There are several reasons a 2002 Jeep Liberty could overheat. Some possible reasons are low in coolant, a bad thermostat, or the head gasket went bad.
sounds like u slipped on the gasket or u have another leak. r u loosing coolant still? coolant usually only smells when driping on hot exhaust.
Sounds like a blown head gasket
