Having problems with your 1999 Oldsmobile Alero ?

Water / coolant leaking from behind engine block.

\015 I visually tried to view where the leak was.. slid under the vehicle and tried to look up from beneath. all I could see was trickling liquid running along the block down to the ground.. couldnt see any hoses leaking or punctures or spraying water.. Not sure if item was a water pump close to me or not but it appeared if it was it was above that part.. is there a soft plug or something like that above that could have started a leak? \012\012The motor has starting running warm to the 3/4 mark of hot..on gauge. Have had the red icon showing low fluid in radiator or container light up.. then go off.. have filled up the reservor and kept the cap loose as not to push the coolant out fast.. is this bad for this system.. However last night I started the car up .. plenty of water in reservoir drove couple blocks.. car warmed up but no heat ..then heat..then light came on then no heat then heat.. then a funny noise.. like a pencil tapping an inside plastic container for a couple taps.. got home a few blocks away.. checked the engine.. checked fluid added some while engine running.. then turned off motor.. any ideas about this leaking situation.?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 21-06-2021

Answers :

Lets hope you can find & fix the leak

I think the noises are just air,that will go away
once you fix & fill the system

Leave the cap on- so it can draw back coolant
at night -when engine cools
