If you have a block heater you could plug that in or move the vehicle inside a garage where the temperature is above the freezing mark
There maybe bubbles accumulating inside of the over flow container after the vehicle runs up to temperature. There could also be an increase in fluid measured by the oil dip stick. Antifreeze burns white if leaked into the cylinder of the vehicle.
If the antifreeze and distilled water mixture is too weak for the ambient temperature then ( yes , the solution could freeze ) Ford vehicles come from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilled water and the correct type of antifreeze for the vehicle Ford states not to exceed 60% antifreeze in the mix ( for colder climates etcetera )
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.
Passenger side floor? Could be leaking heater core
Some people say that the smell of hot antifreeze smells like mold. It could be possible you are smelling the antifreeze from the engine.
take it into a mechanic is the best way to save money, trying to find the leak yourself takes time. it could be a sealent problem or in most cases just a bad clamp or rubber hose. Coolant can certainly be lost through leaks in the cooling system hoses, but can also be lost through a blown head gasket which might cause the vehicle to idle or run rough, and will also result in water vapor or steam from the tailpipe. Coolant can also be lost through a faulty heater core, and this will cause the windows inside the vehicle to steam up constantly.
check the drain line on the a/c or does it have antifreeze smell to it then it could be the heater core
It could be a partially blocked heater core, a faulty heater valve that allows the coolant through the heater core or it could be a faulty water pump.
the motor is effected by the fusion eactor inside the CDI
Yes, antifreeze can leak from a water pump gasket.
Antifreeze is composed of mainly ethylene glycol or propylene glycol, both of which are combustible. So yes, antifreeze IS combustible. However, neither of these compounds is very easily ignited. But although it is HIGHLY unlikely that antifreeze could start a fire, antifreeze could be dangerous if it actually gets hot enough to burn (such as in an ongoing structure fire).
No, you cannot put Pepsi inside of your car's cooling system. This could seriously damage if not make your vehicle inoperable.
Antifreeze does 2 things. First it protects your engine when the outside temperature is below freezing and the vehicle is not running. If the coolant freezes it could crack your engine block requiring a new engine. Caution: 100% antifreeze will also freeze up if it gets too cold. For best results you have to mix antifreeze and water. Check the antifreeze container for correct mixture. Antifreeze also has other things in it that keeps the water pump in good shape, prevents corrosion of the the radiator and helps transfer heat out of the engine. You need it even in hot weather.
Yes definitely. The antifreeze cools the engine by carrying the heat out of the engine and through the radiator where the heat is dissipated. The antifreeze also passes through the heater core, a fan blows over the heater core and produces the heat for inside the car. While there are a number of reasons that the heater inside the car could stop working, no or low antifreeze is certainly one of the primary culprits. Furthermore, this is a very serious situation as not having enough antifreeze will cause the engine to overheat and seize up causing total engine failure which will be very costly to fix. The most important thing anti freeze does is to keep the liquid in the cooling system from freezing, if there is no anti freeze and the liquid freezes and turns to a solid it will expand and crack the engine block and heads or pop out the freeze plugs if you are lucky, always keep anti freeze in your cooling system, never straight water.
If antifreeze is filtering through your ac vents, other toxins could also be coming through. Don't take chances; see a mechanic.
Well, it could be several different problems, To begin with I would check your oil and oil pressure. Then I would make sure you have antifreeze in it that is properly diluted. 50% antifreeze 50% water. If you add all antifreeze this will cause premature corrosion and also overheating. Be sure to check all fluid levels and be sure that your vehicle is not leaking any fluids
if it rear air and heat it could be the line carring the antifreeze tho the back heater core.
It should be displayed on the sticker inside the drivers door jam or door itself depending on the year of the vehicle. Could also be located on the dealership web site.
Antifreeze could be running out often due to a leak. It is important to inspect the radiator for small cracks or smoke.
Could be oil mixing with antifreeze indicating a bad head gasket Are you losing motor oil?
out the tail pipe
check the antifreeze sensor as it could of been damage. or there could be some sort of air in betweenthe antifreeze hoese
if you have the heat on in any vehicle, and there is only cold air coming out of the vents (providing the engine coolant temp gauge shows that the engine is warm) then there is no antifreeze flowing through the heater core, this may be caused by a couple of things: first, there might be a leak in the heater core, but usually antifreeze will be leaking into the heater core housing and will be visible, or there might not be enough antifreeze in the vehicles's radiator, or the water pump might be damaged and not circulating coolant. hope this helps and good luck!
Nothing to stop you. But you couldn't do it out in the open, you would have to be inside a vehicle or your suit to prevent you from freezing things off.
