I'm leaking water....need to know if there are hoses, perhaps heater hoses, behind the water reservoir. There is steam comihg from the left rear of the engine compartment and I am loosing power to the engine. At first I thought I had a bad head gasket. Hoewver, in viewing the side of the engine, there is no steam coming from the engine itself. That I can see, that is. The steam is coming from between the fender (on passenger side) and whatever is behind the water reservoir. I do know that there are a number of wires and fuses, etc., back there. So, I can only think that water is leaking from something and landing on sensitive wires and causing the vehicle to misfire. The vehicle is parked miles away from my home and I need to attend to it in the morning. Perhaps someone can tell me what type of tools I should take to the site where the vehicle is located. I want to find out where the steam is coming from. Any help at all would be grateful. Thanks....JJ Knight
The problem just started, the water pump was replaced about a month ago. Is there any way water can get into a cylinder other than having a defective head gasket? Please tell me yes.
