you should check a few basic things. do you have spark while cranking. do you have fuel pressure and injector pulse. and do you have good compression. (timing components and lifters all normal)

Fixing your coolant leak quickly will ensure your vehicle has the proper coolant level to stay cool and safe. Coolant leaks can come from a variety of places in your vehicle and where the leak is will dictate the best solution.

Possible Coolant Leak Locations:

-Hoses
- Thermostat
- Heater core
- Radiator
- Head gasket

There are at least 4 hoses associated with the cooling system in your vehicle, but possibly many more. There will be a hose that carries coolant from the bottom of the radiator into the water pump and another hose that carries coolant from the top of the engine back to the radiator.
