Have had this problem now for awhile, had several repairs done, even replaced radiator, cap and thermostat. But problem resists. All Hess seem to be fine. Just read that if you have coolant liquid leak once car is stopped and cold, that you probably have a bad water pump. Will a bad water pump cause this overheated antifreeze to overflow from this neck tube? Must add more before starting car and fill to level everyday, otherwise will run out of coolant.
Even had all engine gaskets replaced, and engine blocked realigned. Tooled. Don't know exact phraseology. All transmission gaskets changed. And many parts have been replaced as car is 12 years old and is showing its age.
Please help me with this problem, haven't found any solutions in your previous questions/answers section.
So the problem is overflow of antifreeze from neck-tube that you place radiator cap on. It holds antifreeze levels. Once car heats up, the steam comes out and transforms back to liquid running down the tube's neck. Tell me what could be causing this, mechanic is at wits end! Don't want to continue wasting money on repairs and parts I don't need.
Please be precise when answering, as I am a woman and don't know all the auto repair lingo.
Thank you again.
