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...

What color coolant Ford e350?

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 is wrong with my car won't hold water?

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.

Where do you add antifreeze in the engine I don't want to pour it in the wrong place I bought an antifreeze that is already mixed.?

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.

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.

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.
