Asked in Antifreeze and Engine Coolant
Why would anti freeze leak from exhaust pipe?
A blown head gasket could allow coolant to enter the combustion chamber from the water jacket. The coolant probably is running out the exhaust on first start-up. More often, you will notice the coolant being pumped out of the overflow as the exhaust gas pressurizes the coolant. You should look for this symptom when the engine warms up. Coolant in the exhaust on start-up and then the coolant overpressure overflow from the expansion tank or radiator happening together is almost sure indication of...

Where do you put antifreeze in a 1998Toyota Corolla CE?
Coolant should be added to the coolant overflow reservoir, that sits very close to the radiator itself. The reservoir is generally a translucent bottle that has a rubber hose running to a fitting below the radiator cap. If performing a drain and refill - you can add the coolant directly to the radiator itself. make sure that the reservoir is filled, as the system will automatically draw more coolant as needed - as air bubbles are worked out of the cooling system....
Asked in Radiators
Why does the water i put into the overflow not move to the radiator?
Coolant only moves from the overflow tank/container to the radiator when the engine is cooling. It flows the other way (into the tank) as the engine heats up and coolant expands. If coolant isn't moving into the radiator when the engine is cooling down there could be a couple of reasons. 1. The engine really never got warm enough to begin pushing coolant to the tank and the radiator is already full. 2. The radiator cap is faulty and should be changed. 3....
