OVERHEATING

2003 Buick Rendezvous

Heater problem
2003 Buick Rendezvous 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 93000 miles

Hello, I have a 2003 Buick Rendevous. Over the past month of winter I have noticed the heater was not blowing hot air. Then a couple of days ago it started to overheat. We had to refill the radiator and the overflow which were almost empty. There is water leaking under the car near the tire on the drivers side. As well as into the floorboard on the drivers side. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The easiest way to determine the source of the leak would be to fill cooling system and put a pressure tester on it. Pressure testing the cooling system pushes air into the system and can show you where the leak is at without having to run the vehicle. I would sugguest not driving the vehicle with a coolant leak, because overheating can lead to more costly repairs.
