Coolant leak 95 Isuzu Rodeo

65

Asked by May 04, 2014 at 03:44 PM about the 1995 Isuzu Rodeo 4 Dr S 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

as soon as I pour water in the radiator, water begins pouring out of
the bottom front of the engine. It seems to run right off the front rim
of the oil pan, the truck don't even have to be running. I was thinking
water pump but it seems dry under there. Is there a freeze plug up
front or a hose I can't see or something?

You forgot the engine style, V6 or 4 cylinder.

The water pump is driven by the timing belt on the V6 engine so it is hidden from view by the timing covers, and from your description of where the coolant is coming from I suspect the water pump is the leak, so you might as well replace the timing belt and pulleys while your there. Check with your local parts store, they do make a kit that contains everything you need to do the job right. Don't scrimp, replace everything in the complete kit or you will be back in there with more expensive problems later.

That bad of a leak it won't work, it most likely just run out and not do a thing, but it will if given half a chance plug a good radiator and heater core.
