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.
There might be a leak in the water pump, or in the radiator. Maybe even check the radiator hoses for cracks and leaks.
Oil/antifreeze mix is usually caused by head gasket leaks or valve cover gasket leaks.
Water pump out, ruptured tank on radiator, or head gasket blown probably in that order.
Some people say that the smell of hot antifreeze smells like mold. It could be possible you are smelling the antifreeze from the engine.
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.
Might just be a head gasket. If not the Blocks Cracked. Bad.
possibly the water pump or a bad hose
Could be the intake manifold gaskets are leaking.
if it rear air and heat it could be the line carring the antifreeze tho the back heater core.
try following the hoses from the anti freeze tank you should find your problem...
Bring to a shop and have system pressure tested to find where problem is originating
Check for vaccuum leaks this could be your problem.
Depends on where its leaking from. Could be a clamp hasn't been tightened enough. If its coming from elsewhere, it could be a leaking head gasket. Look for coolant in the oil or coming out the tail pipe.
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.
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.
smell of antifreeze and no visable leaks usually indicates that the heater core needs replacing
Look just below the water pump to see if any antifreeze is visible. Water pumps will sometimes leak and drip out antifreeze. Check the engine oil to see if antifreeze is mixed with the oil, indicating a blown head gasket.
if it leaks on left side of engine at hose,could be a bad water pump! on 3.1 engine. if pump is bad it will leak out of releif hole on bottom of pump!
Blown head gasket.
If by water you mean engine coolant, yes. Loss of coolant, antifreeze, is a major cause of overheating.
heater core has a pinhole leak! Only shows when under pressure .remove and replace not good to breath antifreeze vapers!
change your antifreeze fill cap.
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
Its probably your water pump, which pumps coolant through the engine block to cool it down.
Could be timing cover gasket or head gasket.
