I have the same problem. I was told by a mechanic it is most likely a freeze plug, but it is so tight back there I can't see anything. I have been driving it for 6 months just adding antifreeze. But its getting worst. Has anyone got this fixed? Is it fixable without pulling the engine?

Freeze plugs. More likely that hoses are leaking or thermostat housing is leaking. Freeze Plugs generally NEVER leaks unless engine block has had frozen coolant in it. Hence, Freeze Plugs.

Why is your coolant leaking?

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 clog in your coolant line. Also get your radiator checked. If it's leaking into the passenger compartment, it's most likely the heater core.

94 Buick century leaking water change pump and thermo but still leaking?

Leaking or loosing coolant? If it is leaking then where is the leak? If it is just loosing coolant with no apparent leak, then you more than likely have a blown head gasket or cracked head. If there is coolant in the oil, or white sweet smelling smoke coming from the exhaust you definitely have an internal problem. Serious engine damage will occur if you continue to drive this vehicle.


Why does my318jeep use oil no leaks no exhaust smoke?

If you aren't seeing oil leaking in the driveway then it almost has to be burning it due to worn valves or pistons. There most likely is exhaust smoke but you just can't see it yet. One other thing to check is your engine coolant. A leaking main seal will allow engine oil into the coolant side of the engine which will turn your coolant a milky white frothy looking liquid.

What is the most likely cause of coolant leaking from the rear of the engine in a 2000 blazer?

You need to climb up and lean over the engine and run your fingers around the back 2 corners of the intake manifold and see if you get antifreeze on them. They are none for the intake gaskets to leak engine coolant. It is a common problem with the vortec engines. There are also 2 freeze plugs in the back of the engine where the fly-wheel is bolted to the engine that could be leaking engine coolant. There is also a heater core hose that goes into the rear left corner of the intake that could be leaking. The hose fits into a quick disconnect fitting that screews into the intake. It is common for the fitting to leak too,

How can you tell if the cylinder wall is leaking water?

I doubt the cylinder wall would be leaking coolant. More likely the head gasket is bad or the head is cracked. When the engine is warmed up and running, a white sweet smelling smoke will come out of the exhaust. The white smoke is a tell-tale sign of an internal coolant leak.

THis is radiator Fluid. Also known as coolant. Either you have a radiotor leak, your water pump is leaking, or one of you coolant hoses is broken (more than likely its a hose)


Why would there be coolant leaking into the oil in a 1995 Gran am?

I'm assuming your grand am has a 3400 v6 which are known for intake and head gaskets leaking. so its possible that one of those gaskets are leaking so bad that coolant is leaking from intake/heads down onto your valvetrain and then down into your oil pan. more than likely its your intake gaskets leaking.


Your kx 125 keeps getting water in the oil its had a rebuild water new pump ect?

pressure test your coolant system, if it wont hold pressure you most likely have cracked some part of the engine internally, hence leaking coolant into the oil

If your 1998 Jeep Cherokee is leaking coolant, it might be a seal but it is more likely that it is a hose. This might also be a radiator leak, a loose hose clamp, or the freeze plugs in the radiator.


Why is antifreeze leaking from e g r valve for 99 maxima?

My 98 Ford Taurus is not over heating but there is oil in the radiator overflow. However there is no water in the oil. What is the problem?

There are two possibilities, one it is most likely the automatic transmission cooler( in the radiator) is leaking transmission fluid. The other, engine is oil entering the cooling system through a leaking headgasket, cracked cylinderhead or engine block.Keep in mind that the engine oil pressure( normally) is allways higher than that of the coolant system , when engine is running.It is rare but possible that engine oil @ say 40 p.s.i. is entering the coolant system, but when the engine is shut off the coolant system pressure is not high enough to leak into the engine oil .It is not uncommon for(in radiator) transmission coolers to leak oil into the coolant system.


You have white smoke coming from your exhaust and engine on a 1989 Mercury Topaz?

That means that rad. coolant is leaking into the combustion part of the engine, and burning, thus white smoke. Most likely the head gasket has to be replaced, and have the head checked for cracks also.
