If after two hours in traffic your 1994 Pontiac Sunbird begins to smoke and green liquid comes out the bottom after you park is it safe to drive?

I agree!!!

NO Take it to a garage!!!

If the smoke is white or has a kind of sweet smell to it the it's a problem with your cooling system, (the green liquid is antifreeze). My 92 did the same. I simply parked my car openned the hood then started it (be extremely careful if antifreeze is spraying out or a hose busts you be burnned. I wated for my car to begin to overheat, I looked for where the smoke is coming from, if it is coming from your tail pipe then you probably blew a head gasket. If its coming from the engine compartment then the best step is to look for the leak, in my case my upper radiator hose split and then sprayed onto my exhaust manifold causeing the smoke. That would be a quick $15 fix for a new hose(autozone). If it tends to come out of the right side of the engine then it maybe your lower radiator hose again $15. If not then your water pump probably went out. The leak would be from the left side of the enine and would generally not smoke. A $50 do it yourself fixer or $250 mechanic fixer. Change your oil afterword, if it's a blown head gasket there may be traces of antifreeze (the green liquid) in your oil. If so you need to replace your oil, if it was just a hose, I would change my oil anyways since you probably over-heated your car, brakeing down your oil. - Tony G.

you might have a blown head gaskit frome overheating frome colling systim
