Leaking antifreeze in back of engine?
antifreeze does not enter the engine at any time. locate and follow your radiator hoses and follow then and check for cracks or punctures.
Your car shouldn't "burn" antifreeze. If it actually is "burning" antifreeze then chances are you have a blown/leaking head gasket or possibly a cracked engine block which allows antifreeze to enter the combustion chambers. If your antifreeze is just disappearing then it is probably leaking out from somewhere. Possible leak areas to check out would be the radiator hoses, heater hoses, radiator, water pump, and the heater core. Most of the time if the heater…
antifreeze smell inside car means that there is antifreeze leak somewhere. first check for wet spots under car when parked after running.if anti freeze is leaking from engine it will pool on the ground next check to see if heater core is leaking. that is usually the problem. if heater core is leaking, replace it
There are 2 freeze plugs in the back of the engine block were the flywheel is, They may be leaking. But I would look at the back top corners of the intake manifold real close and run your fingers around the corners and see if you get antifreeze on them. The intake Gaskets are none to leak on Chevy V8 and V6 engines, It is a common problem.
Just had intake gasket done on 350 and I believe block was not drained properly if antifreeze was left in engine how fast would it wreck engine?
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?
if you can smell antifreeze, you have an antifreeze leak somewhere. you need to clean engine then look for coolant . it will generally pool on ground under vehicle unless it is leaking onto engine and burning off. note that the coolant will run so you may have to trace back to the actual leak. check all coolant fittings, such as hoses and check area round water pump.
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?
Because there's a hole somewhere under the hood that's letting it out, and it's usually in a heater hose. If you can't find it any other way, there's a blacklight detection dye you can put in the antifreeze. You put it in the radiator, then shine a blacklight (the ones they have at hardware stores are fine for this) on your engine. The leaking antifreeze will glow under blacklight.
