I pour water in the radiator and it comes out at the back of my engine. My car has been sitting for about 2 weeks. I didnt have any problems with it before. Do you think its my water pump or a hose?

if you could put a picture up here for us to assess.....sounds like a freeze plug...need a few more biscuits for puppy, please~

if you could get your mitts on a pressure tester (or rent from autozone or NAPA) you could pressurize the system.....ONLY stop using water....it carries an ionic charge that gobbles down aluminum and causes the steel to rust....please as soon as we fix this we should use the proper 50/50 ethylene and glycol mix (they sell a pre-mix)~ hopefully was just a freezeplug....because someone used WATER on this engine....bad moo- joo...don't do this anymore~
