behind fan,bolted to front of engine block
It is located behind the fan and mounted to the engine block with 4 bolts.
On the engine block on the top front just behind the water pump on a machined surface the code will be stamped.
There is 2 of them in the back of the engine. You will have to pull the engine are remove the transmission and fly-wheel to get to them. It is what ever is the easiest for you.
There is coolant in the engine block when the engine is not running. The engine block, heater, hoses and radiator remain full when engine is not running.
If the cork gaskets are not damaged then the engine block may be cracked. Check to see that the cork gaskets are indeed in place and not damaged.
Lack of water in you engine block. Lack of oil in your engine block. Can cause piston siege.
It should not
it is on the front of the engine block behind the fan. looking at the car from the front it is to the left of the water pump. there will be a three bolt adapter going from the engine block to the radiator. by removing the three bolts you will find the thermostat there.
Passenger side bolted right to the center of the engine block behind the serpentine belt.
As in the engine? Don't attempt to start it. Water expands when it freezes. If the water in your engine block has frozen there is a good possibility that damage has been done to the block.
On the front of the engine in the middle of the engine block.
Yes. You can freeze the water, making it expand, or you can add cold water to a hot engine, shocking the block. You prevent freezing with antifreeze. You prevent shock by never adding water to a hot engine. If there is enough water in the engine to have the water pump provide circulation, you can add water SLOWLY, but you should really only add water to a hot engine when there is very little to add.
Water loss out the bottom of the engine on a Fiat Punto is an indication of a leaking radiator, radiator hose, or engine block. Most repairs are relatively easy, but the block is a severe issue.
The water pump is bolted to the front of the engine behind the engine cooling fan
Kind of. There are water jackets inside the engine block and usually the heads of a liquid-cooled engine Water (or coolant) will either flow from the block to the head to the radiator, or from the radiator through the head to the block (a reverse flow design). The latter is better because it cools the heads first and helps prevent detonation. It also reduces thermal shock to the engine block.
Assuming this is a 4.3 engine, remove the block coolant drain plugs. There is one on each side of the block. The passenger side is towards the front of the block and the drivers side is towards the back.
most likely an intake gasket
crack the engine block and oil mixes with water or antifreeze.
Lack of anti-freeze in sub-freezing temperatures. The water in the block freezes and expands.
Yes, coolant is in the block, heater, hoses and radiator all the time.
Antifreeze helps by not allowing the coolant to freeze and possibly crack the water passages of the block.
