No coolant, temperature rising a fact!! Are you certain you are loosing anti freeze? Simple fact, if you are loosing coolant you will experience overheating. You will have blown head gaskets or a complete engine failure. You must be catching it before it gets this far. The cause could be from a leaky hose connection, faulty cracked coolant hose, leaking heater core, leaking head or water gaskets, leaking water pump, hole in radiator. I may be over looking other causes, but I would check for leaks before it is too late. I have a mustang 5.0 that looses anti freeze very slowly. I can tell when it is getting low, before the warning light comes on, by the cooling fan coming on more frequently than normal. The leak is so slight I can not find it. If you are not sure you are loosing anti freeze and the temperature is rising, you may have a faulty temp. control on your cooling fan not letting it come on soon enough or at all. You do not need the cooling fan while moving or operating in cool climates.
leaking intake gasket. gm is notorious for them
A small radiator leak can cause antifreeze to leak on your 1998 Chevy Lumina when there are not any spots on the ground. A pinhole in a hose can also cause this.
No. All antifreeze types are not priced on quality but brand name. This should not have any bearing on your radiator leaking.
no you need to replace temperature sinding unit
yes, leaking coolant is what happens before the pump totally dies, then you have overheating and possible engine damage soon after the leaking.
Antifreeze fumes can be toxic. Breathing them can cause health problems. If your vehicle is leaking coolant, especially from the heater core use care and repair the leak as soon as possible.
Heater core has failed.
No, but the water pump is usually located near this and that is probably what is leaking. .
If it is motor oil in the anti freeze, then it is either a cracked head, cracked engine block, or a head gasket blown. If it is transmission fluid in your antifreeze, then the radiator is leaking from the transmission cooler ----- although usually that would cause antifreeze to be in your transmission fluid.
If by water you mean engine coolant, yes. Loss of coolant, antifreeze, is a major cause of overheating.
Intake manifold gaskets are leaking, intake manifold is warped.
Yes, because your vehicle will overheat.
Rising air can indicate high pressure but it does not have to be the only cause. Rising air can be caused by temperature increases as well.
Most likely cause is the intake manifold gasket-antifreeze will usually leak down the back of the engine and drip off of the starter or somewhere in that area.
check antifreeze level
There are numerous possibilities. You really need to have the cooling system pressurized to determine what is leaking.
antifreeze leaking into the engine base. a cracked clyd. head or blown head gasket is probable cause
a cooling of the air temperature
check where it's leaking. You could have blown a hose which is most likely unless sumeone took out the drain plug. Just look for where it is leaking and that will give you your answer
Temperature can definitely affect your health and cause ailments and diseases. The rising temperatures can cause dehydration and virus, while cold temperatures can cause symptoms of seasonal affected disorder.
no Most of the time white smoke is caused by antifreeze burning in the cylinder. Leaking injector s can cause white to blueish smoke.And that's alot more common then antifreeze getting into your CTD. Also antifreeze will almost always lock you up , due to the higher compression of the CTD. Gas engines have a much lower compression . They will sound horriable but burn it. CTD will crack. Check leaking injector, or turbo oil.
it can cause currents like hot water rising cooling and sinking back down the process continues
If you drive through a water puddle, water can get on the belts-antifreeze leaking, oil leaking, maybe a bad alternator /idler bearing, and sometimes a glazed/worn out belt.
No. The two things are completely unrelated.
No it is not. It could be a problem with the radiator, a radiator hose or a water pump. In any situation, it could cause the motor to overheat and damage it severely.
