If it continues loosing coolant eventually it will start running hot. Without knowing the Make/Model/Year of the vehicle, I'll take a wild guess and say the leak is at the coolant recovery tank or the hose going from the radiator [just below the radiator cap] over to the coolant recovery tank. Untill you find the problem *check* your coolant--running an engine hot can be VERY expensive! Also, check the coolant ****ONLY*** when the engine is COLD [like it hasn't been driven all night]. NEVER check coolant when the engine is hot! Good luck with it and be carefull. Remember, better SAFE than sorry...
Volkswagen or any other vehicle shouldn't use any antifreeze. If any car is using antifreeze something is wrong.
the heater core may be plugged up
Lack of antifreeze or wrong mix of antifreeze and water.
heater core has a pinhole leak! Only shows when under pressure .remove and replace not good to breath antifreeze vapers!
I think what you are seeing is your muffler leaking condensation from a weep hole. This normal and will stop after your vehicle has reached full operating temperature.
If it heated up on you, chances are that you warped the cylinder head and now have a blown gasket. You don't give very much information, here.
it doesn't matter on the color I have to disagree with the above answer. The color does matter. Antifreeze is a very important fluid in your vehicle. Put the wrong type antifreeze in the system and you can create problems. You do not list the year so it is impossible for me to tell you the correct anti-freeze for your Ford. Just use exactly what your owner's manual says and you cannot go wrong.
What happened to this vehicle?
If your car will not hold water you should first check your radiator for holes and leaks. This should be done with the engine turned off. If you do not find any leaks coming from the radiator and the water stays inside, turn on your vehicle and let it idle. If you notice water leaking from the vehicle while it is running, then your water pump is bad and will need to be replaced.
Don't forget 50/50 solution too What kind of vehicle? What size engine? You don't add antifreeze to the engine, anyway. There should be an overflow jug on post '85 vehicles and on pre '85 vehicles you add the antifreeze to the radiator only. Please check your owner's manual or ask your car dealer for further information.
The headgasket has failed.
Your heater core has failed.
It will overheat and cause damage
It sounds a bit like a water pump that went out all of a sudden. Losing the belt would kill the power steering, so maybe the pump bearing failed and the belt burned or jumped off.
"Wrong" implies that there is a standard. It is rare that a condominium community would define a "right" detergent for use in its facility. Classically, detergent does not cause plumbing leaks.
You probably used the wrong type of antifreeze. You should use the type for aluminum heads.
A Chevy Cavalier can use standard, all-purpose antifreeze, so it's unlikely that the wrong kind was put in. However, if it is not diluted properly and the antifreeze is mixed with more than 50 percent water, the engine can overheat under some circumstances.
It's normal. But no... it is not wrong at all.
Head gasket could be bad
If you use the Honda brand, you will not go wrong.
Because your tires are vital to your safety.Apart from regular air leaks,a number of things can go wrong with tires and you should look at them frequently for bulges or warps.
The VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) is probably bad. Also check the fuses.
Wrong mixture make sure you have pre diluted/mixed coolant/antifreeze.
