Coolant system problems freezing temps
I started truck in freezing temps -4, 2 weeks ago,
noticed a coolant leak. Changed hose clamp and
coolant, leak stopped. Started truck 2 days ago, -4
again, there was a squeal like a belt and now there
is another leak, this one seems to be from radiator
somewhere. Why/what is causing this? Please
Your talking a 16 year old vehicle. When it is in ex-stream conditions the weakest links are going to give. Just have to keep up with proactive maintenance.
Coolant leaks in extreme cold are somewhat common. Usually tightening or replacing a clamp will resolve the issue. Do you have the proper mix of water and antifreeze in your truck? Frozen coolant could cause the water pump not to turn which would make the belt squeal. Frozen coolant is not good.
