Car leaking and running hot
My car started leaking all the coolant fluids
looks like from behind the altenator i have a
1996 chevy blazer and my temperature
gauge never reaches hot but the truck
smokes from the same area the guy that did
last work tried to fix y heater without
replaeig the whole heater cord please help i
That sounds like the water pump.
There is a heater hose at the intake behind the alternator. It has a quick disconnect that is screws into the manifold. These have a tendency for failure. Also the intakes manifold gaskets tend to leak coolant with age and high mileage.
That's what my pastor said thank you i guess just bad luck and timing but is that expensive mark
Yes the car has really high miles so it could either be the water pump or the heater hoses or gaskets???? Im sorry i dont no anything about cars and i dont want someone to take advantage of me my kids and i are going through alot so i dont wanna get took
And i think he did buy a hose and some clamps when he did the heater
If it is just the heater hose connector it is not expensive.
Even if it is a water pump you should be have it done under $250.00. if someone one does the labor as a gift, it should be under a Hundred.
Ok do you think the car could make it from carrollton tx to dallas tx
How fast does it leak out before it starts getting hot??? Miles and timewise.
It barely leaks while the car is started my temp gauge never goes completely in the red it goes to the half and a little bit passed half i can drive for mayb ten mins so it prob wont make it we have no clothes the guy i was with put us out and now this idk anything about cars as far as major things go
Oh super high miles it was a highway car
On a temp gauge half way between cold and hot is normal. And even a little past is okay. its only when it swings all the way over to the "H" is it overheating. If you have to travel take 2 gallons of premixed antifreeze 50/50 mix. So if it leaks out you can add more to the radiator but only add when the engine is cooled down.
take it to a mechanic, they can find the leak in no time. Without being there we can only guess what it is. But there are alot of things that can leak coolant in that area.
