Nine times out of ten blown head gasket>very common problem fix immediately will make car overheat and lock up. Also cracked block/water jacket caused by inproper anti-freeze mixture in radiatore.

Asked in Dodge Ram
Why does your dodge ram 1500 uses a lot of antifreeze?
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.

What is the problem when the antifreeze leaks after replacing a hose?
How do you get antifreeze out of your oil?
By repairing he problem, which is more than likely a blown head gasket. Do not drive this car as severe engine damage will occur. My two cents: Note that other leaks can cause this problem. GM 3.1L and 3.4L SFI engines get this problem from a lower intake gasket. Chrysler OHC V6 Engines (chain timed) will do this if the water pump leaks.
The intake gasket have anything to do with the car overhearing?
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.
Asked in Chevrolet

Asked in Antifreeze and Engine Coolant
There are no busted hoses and no overheating but coolant leaks in 1997 jeep Cherokee sport what could it be?

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?
What could cause your 1999 Grand AM SE to run hot and loss coolant with no leaks?
Asked in Heating AC and Engine Cooling
Your car overheats and loses water it is not thermostat what could it be?
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
Asked in Serpentine Belts
Are antifreeze leaks common with broken serpentine drive belts?
Asked in Dodge
What could be the source of antifreeze leak under a 97 Dodge Caravan beneath the engine on the passenger side--the thermostat water pump and the lower radiator hose have been replaced still leaks?
Asked in VW Beetle Type 1, Water-Cooled VW
Where is your antifreeze going if its not leaking?
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 places. In ascending order of dread: You could have a leak you don't know about. Do you smell antifreeze inside the car? Heater cores do spring leaks occasionally. (Changing one is an awful job. Hope it's not that.) Heater hoses leak. Little pinholes you can't even see will cause leaks you can't find. You could have a bad head gasket. Or you could have a cracked block.
