Default My chevy blazer 1997 leaking coolant?

My radiator is full, not leaking from water pump, or radiator. Has been leaking coolant from right side a bit in from wheel. Only have to add to overflow. Never gets hot, but when reserve gets too low heater stops getting hot. Having to fill reserve once maybe twice a wk. Is it my reserve tank leaking?

Sounds like a heater core or a leaking hose.

should be easy to see if the tank is leaking ,, could also just be the hose that is connected to the tank.

but when you heater stops working like that , it means your water IN YOUR ENGINE is low . not just the res tank . that will not make you heat stop working .

when you heater stops working you have very little water in your eng and it prob over heating but gauge is not telling you because there is no water for it to read.

you need to repair this before you ruin your eng , and mean now !!!

you need to find the leak and repair it or pay someone to find and repair it. you are going to ruin your eng.

it is SIMPLE !!!! just look and see where it is leaking ! i have had 3 blazers myself and have a 98 jimmy now.

if you find out it is the heater core , it is expensive 120 $ and a pain to replace another 200 $.

if you can do without a heater and defrost .. you can just bypass the heater core for $5 and five minuets, doing it yourself , very easy.

also ,, you need to start refilling the water by removing the radiator cap and not just filling the res tank.

that does NOT fill you radiator and eng with water .
