When coolant coming out of 1999 alero from overflow and leaking water pump replaced water pump but still comes out of overflow could it be thermostat?
Could be thermostat not opening causing a back pressure
You have antifreeze leaking only when car is running It is dripping down underneath the passenger side next to trasmission It is pure coolant You changed thermostat?
Where could the coolant be leaking from underneath the car on a 19999 bonnevile when ive changed the thermostat?
When the check gages light comes on the temp meter is in the hot zone and the overflow tank is leaking out anti-freeze is that an indication of low coolant in the radiator of my '97 grand Cherokee?
The thermostat might need to be replaced. or the coolant level mite be low. it is a sign that it is. and also the type of coolant used if not flushed and replaced tends to clog the heater core. try flushing it out. lastly you have a bad intake gasket and leaking coolant out. 4.3's are notorious for this.
What is happening when the coolant reservoir is overpressurized and starts leaking from the cap Is this a thermostat problem or cooling fan switch problem?
What could the problem be on a 97 dodge ram if antifreeze still leaks badly even after the thermostat has been replaced and the radiator and pump was pressurized by a professinal and found no leaks?
Where is it leaking? That pressure test sounds funny, why would you pressurize only the pump and radiator? If you are leaking coolant outside the engine, locate the source. If you are losing it from the radiator but cannot find a puddle suspect a head gasket problem. Check the Radiator cap first, if it is bad high pressure coolant will travel back to the overflow bottle.
If your 93 Chevy is still overheating after you have replaced the thermostat what should you check next?
Does low coolant level and no pressure in the overflow tank mean coolant is leaking into the engine in a 98 olds intrigue?
I replaced my thermostat in my vehicle and now it is leaking engine coolant how do i reseal the connection?
What do i do if my 95 cadillac sedan deville is leaking coolant and the heater is only blowing cold air and the thermostat has already been changed and still no heat?
The thermostat is most likely stuck in the closed position and needs to be replaced. The closed thermostat does not allow the coolant to circulate through the radiator, thus overheating the engine. The reason for water being pushed through the thermostat housing is because the water pump is spinning and there is no place for the coolant to go, therefore, it is leaking out through the housing gasket which is probably already blown (need to…
1995 s-10 blazer you replaced the radiator and the heater hose was leaking so you replaced it and it is still overheating?
no, check the coolant reservoir 1st, if its full then after car is at operating temp. look underneath and see if any coolant or water is on the ground below the water pump if so the weep hole is probably leaking on the water pump check the componet if all check out it maybe the thermostat fairly enxpensive to replace so i would replace the thermostat and check the temp again but if the water…
I would start with checking all the hose clamps and hoses to make sure they are properly tightened and not damaged. Also check that the thermostat housing is not leaking along with the water pump. Especially if any of these were replaced when the radiator was replaced. Also check to see if drain cock is closed. Also make sure the overflow hose is correctly routed to the overflow tank. You might just have to run…
I've had this happen to me before. I had the water pump replaced after it had been leaking a little and my car overheated. We thought it might have been leaking again but turns out the mechanics had forgot to tighten something. I would have them look at it once more to make sure nothing is loose and leaking your coolant.
1995 Sunfire coolant is leaking from area located under steering column have already replaced thermostat and coolant in reservoir tank is full also noticed coolant smell in interior of car when heaton?
If you are getting coolant inside the car your Heater core is leaking but if only smelling coolent. The hose on the exterior maybe the issue and it maybe that the sound blanket in that area where the ends of the heater core pass thru the firewall is asborbing coolent hence the smell. This should give you a starting point hope it helps.
1989 Dodge shadow that the heater doesn't heat up and the heater core is not leaking what else could it be?
The thermostat is a mechanical device that restricts the flow of coolant in order to allow the engine to reach it's operating temp more quickly. It then opens and allows coolant to flow but will hold the temp at whatever is the set limit of the thermostat, usually around 190 degrees. The gasket is what prevents it from leaking.
