How bad is it when antifreeze leaks into a engine?
Might just be a head gasket. If not the Blocks Cracked. Bad.
Why your car is leaking antifreeze from the driver side it look that is leaking under the hose that runs from the radiator to the engine but it is not the hose would your engine be crack?
Check to see if it is mixing with engine oil Run engine to normal operating temperature and remove oil dipstick, let a drop fall on hot part of engine - oil will smoke coolant will "sizzle" If so could be a sign of a bad head gasket It's not going anywhere in a Type 1 Beetle because we never used antifreeze in aircooled engines. In a New Beetle, it could be going one of three…
Could be a few things. Does it leak antifreeze? if so, fix the part that leaks. If not, you could have coolant mixing with oil inside the engine, which burns it. check your spark plugs. If they are white, you are probably burning antifreeze - fix immediately. your exhaust will smell "sweet" as well if you are burning antifreeze.
Added antifreeze to surge tank on 2000 Alero now antifreeze leaks from back of engine only sometimes?
There are no busted hoses and no overheating but coolant leaks in 1997 jeep Cherokee sport what could it be?
ya, especially if you are leaking antifreeze internally or externally. if intake manifold gasket leaks usually have vacuum problem result in "rough engine idle" look for external antifreeze leak at manifold gasket first. then check oil for "milky color" - if antifreeze runs low due to leak = Yes - engine overheat. Dont drive it - you can do a lot more damage if you do.
What causes an antifreeze leak towards the bottom of the engine block on a 1991 Honda Civic hatchback?
need find out where you are losing antifreeze = look for leaks at radiator hoses etc first, then intake manifold top side of engine along sides of engine as well. Be careful if engine is hot .then lastly check you engine oil in case there is an internal antifreeze leak due to faulty intake manifold or head gasket. if not found have a pressure test done on the cooling system
Why does your 1990 blazer keep overheating you replaced the radiator thermostat and water pump and you have no leaks except from over flow when its hot and no antifreeze in the oil?
What could be wrong if steam comes from vents odor within car foggers and heat doesn't work and antifreeze leaks underneath the car when engine is running?
If it is loosing coolant then you have a leak. Could be the reservoir itself is leaking. Cold also be a leaking water pump, or a blown head gasket. Have this looked at immediately as a blown head gasket will cause serious engine damage. You need to find this leak. Answer if this helps, when antifreeze/coolant leaks in to the engine 99% of the time the vehicle will blow white smoke out the tail pipe.also…
