Leaking coolent by oil pan
\015 When car is not running coolent is dripping97 cutlass supreme leaking coolant from underneath the passenger side front tire, temp gage moves constantly from half way point to HOT>>>new thermostat, new water pump, Please Help.\015
The coolant is circulated in the engine and then to the radiator to cool it before entering the same cycle again. On the passenger side the passenger side the coolant is pumped into the engine by a small pump which too is located on that side. Are you absolutely sure that there is no leak while running? A symptom which can help is to check/measure the level of the coolant in the radiator before taking the car out. Run for min 10 miles, again check the level after the engine cools a bit, say 5 min. I am confident that a small difference will detected. Now there are 2 hose pipes, one from the radiator bottom to the pump and one from pump to engine. In newer models the pump is inside the engine & therefore not visible, hence only 1 hose pipe. The leak has to be in this place, most likely the Hose pipe which might have cracked or damaged somehow or because of normal wear & Tear of the vehicle. Change both hose pipes, one at the bottom and one on the top part of the radiator. As a thumb rule never replace just one but both. If it still leaks then get the Radiator thoroughly checked after removing it from the car and test under mild water pressure. If there are any leak in the Radiator tubing, repair by soft welding(gas welding). The are the only rwo possible place from where the coolant is leaking
