Why wont my car start and leak water on passenger side under the hood.

Asked by Aug 25, 2015 at 11:19 PM about the 2003 Hyundai Elantra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I did not drive my car last so honestly unsure of how it quick.  I was told that
parking the car water starting gushing out.  Then I was told it was still cranking
but  the person did not drive to my house.  Went back in about two or three
days and the car did not crank and have not crank and my battery is no good
now.  My mama let me use her battery out her truck and it still wont' start.  It act
as if it want to but it wont.  My mama and me feel like something is not allowing
it to power up.  plus it also leaking water on the passenger side under the hood
whenever I put water in the car.  I kind want to say it something to do with the
radiation cause I just replace the radiation because the old one was rusty and
crack and old.  Please tell me whatever it is It can be fix.

It sounds like a radiator hose came loose .. but if the car was driven with low coolant and overheated then you could have serious problems. The no-start condition is a clue that something malfunctioned and when you add that information to the water leak it points to overheating. You could be lucky and find something simple like a bad ignition module ( it gives the spark to the engine spark-plugs Cheap and easy to find at a salvage yard) ... You have to identify where the water is leaking from before doing anything else. God Bless and Good Luck

Hello I was coming to say the water leaking from the water pump but it still won't crank you saying you could be more helpful if you knew were the water was coming from
