I fill the bottle up with antifreeze but it soon is gone in 2 days and the engine smokes.why is that?
Your Chevy blazer was overheating and you put antifreeze in your car 3 days ago and it is all gone Where could the antifreeze be leaking to Its not on the ground?
Asked in Toyota Camry
2001 Toyota Camry your daughter has been driving the car for 2 days without antifreeze what damage can occur?
If no liquid in the cooling system, then the heads are probably warped and the engine is ruined. If running straight water and no antifreeze, then permanent damage unlikely unless the temps have been cold enough to freeze the water in the engine (popping the freeze plugs), or the engine has gotten hot enough to boil off the water in the cooling system. 50/50 mix of distilled water and antifreeze is necessary to prevent freezing, boil-over, and cooling system corrosion.
Asked in Thermostats, Chrysler Sebring
What all has to be taken off if 2001 Chrysler Sebring convertible 2.7 engine to replace the thermostat?
The Thermostat is not located in the conventional position at top off engine, but rather is at the bottom right side of engine "copilots side". Follow lower radiator hose to where it attachs to engine. Probable don't need a new gasket as it is reusably. You will loose all the antifreeze in the radiater unless you collect it. Install thermostat, refill with NEW antifreeze from top radiator hose into radiator and in cooling tank. Bring engine up to operatiing temperature and wait till fan comes on so that you know its hot. Make sure tank is full, add as needed. Then open air bleed screw at top of engine where upper radiator attaches to. Keep open until all air is out of system. DON"T BURN YOURSELF. Use a short hose attached to bleed screw and a small bottle to catch antifreeze. Hose should be at bottom of bottle with some antifeeze in it. You will see air bubbling out. Once all air is out and there is a steady stream, close bleed screw. After a few days of driving, bleed air out again.

What are the substances found in engine coolant?
Engine coolant is a chemical compound. It consists mainly of water, but water freezes too easily so an antifreeze is added. This helps prevent the coolant from freezing on winter days and it also raises the boiling point which is helpful. An antifreeze contains mainly ethylene, but also has some methanol and propylene. The water and antifreeze make up around 90% of the coolant. The rest of it is chemicals to prevent rust and corrosion (redox reactions) occurring. In other words... Coolant contains: Water - 60% Antifreeze - 30% Others - 10% hope this helps
My 97 Chevy blazer is overheating and leaks antifreeze when the engine is off. I added fluid 3 days ago and it helped for only a day. Where is the problem?

Asked in Tractors and Farm Equipment
What makes antifreeze turn redsome antifreeze is green and some is clear. what is the ingredient that causes it to turn red in color also can you add that ingredient to other antifreezes?
The color of the antifreeze is made that way and no dye is available. There is no reason to color it afterwards. The reason for the different colors these days is because they have made it with different properties to match specific engine manufactuerers needs. Newer engines now take pink or red for example due to blocks and cyl heads being made from different metals and they are also trying to prevent engine failures due to the way earlier coolants had on engine parts. Mixing colors isn't a good idea but that's still up for debate by many people.Go with what the owners manual states.
Asked in Hiking and Backpacking
If you go hiking and a couple days later find a squished bottle?
Why would there be oil in your radiator?
Odds are you have blown a head gasket and the antifreeze and oil flow share the same gasket. As the gasket wears, the antifreeze mixes into the oil and vice versa! I suggest replacing your current antifreeze and do a full flush. Test it for a few days and test if you have oil again. A tell tell sign of a blown head gasket is black smoke (burning oil) or white smoke (burning antifreeze ) coming out the exhaust.

How do you ween a 17 month old off a bottle?
you simply take it away. They will cry for a few days and want the bottle, but you have to be strong and just live out the crying. My daughter was off the bottle at age 1. She cried for it for maybe 2 days, then it was over. It was hard on me, but.. She is only 20 months old now and she drinks with a straw. So don't be discouraged.. you can do it!
Asked in Cars & Vehicles
How do you plug your car in for winter?
Purchase a heater from an auto store. Install it in the hose line that goes to the Engine Block. Instructions included. The Fluid will be warm and circulate through the Engine Block . They also have block heaters that plug into the engine. A good tune up, Good Battery, Good Antifreeze will also work. If you live Way North, there is a solar panel that you plug into your cig lighter that will keep your battery charged if you do not start your car for a few days.
