2002 Trailblazer fan throwing coolant

Asked by Jul 20, 2015 at 08:38 PM about the Chevrolet TrailBlazer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Alright so I just changed out my rad bc mechanic said it needed to be done. Got
everything filled up, turned on the car and there was coolant under the car. Popped the
hood only to see the 15 dollar coolant being thrown about my engine by the fan. Does this
mean my water pump is out? It wasn't doing this two weeks ago, car hasnt been driven
since we found out we needed a new rad.

Could be water pump are could have small hole in hose causing it to spray on the fan

Exactly, the cooling system operates under pressure. If there's even a small leak in a hose it can spray everywhere. Just like if you put your finger over the kitchen faucet. HTH. -Jim

The best thing to do is have a cooling system pressure test done on vehicle then you can see exactly where the leak is coming from.

I think I found the hole. But now I can't get my rad cap off to check my levels. It just spins. Any ideas?

You have to push down while unscrewing the cap just like the medicine bottle of today.
