Antifreeze and Engine Coolant
Porsche
Snow White

Why would a 1980 Porsche 925 recently spray a lot of antifreeze all over the engine?

Over time, the rubber in the radiator hoses becomes brittle causing it to crack very easily. As the hot radiator coolant surges through the hoses under pressure, it makes it very easy for the hoses to break. (most of the time in the hardest places to find) The solution to finding the hole would be to take a garden hose, and put it in the radiator top, run it so the radiator won't run out of fluid and try to assess where the water/coolant mixture is seeping from. Either have a garage fix it, or purchase a new hose and replace.

sounds like a hole in your radiator or hoses.

No. It can result in damage to the engine if you loose all of your coolant. I have damaged an Alternator by coolant spraying on it. There is some risk if you try to work on the radiator or remove the cap when the engine is HOT. The fluid can spray on you can cause burns. Antifreeze is not harmful to you if you spill it on you. ( cats and dogs are attracted to antifreeze and could possibly kill them if they drink it )

Yes, it is perfectly safe to use hair spray on newly died hair! The chemicals in the hair spray will not effect your recently dyed hair.

A radiator cap can not only be hot, but it is holding in pressure. When the cap comes off under pressure, hot antifreeze will spray out, possibly causing injury.

No- regular spray paint will melt it Acrylic spray paint will work on it, though. I used some on styrofoam recently and it worked great. (:

Your heater core behind the glove box has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

cold. If you open the radiator when the car is hot, it can spray all over the place.

Just buy a can of spray on degreaser or something like Spray Power. Wipe off as much of the oil as possible, then spray it on the underside of the hood and then rinse if off.

First check the vacuum hoses visually then with the engine running, spray carb cleaner at the suspected areas. When you spray a cracked area the engine rpms will increase.

You flush it first off with fresh water using the flush points wash off all salt with fresh water in jet and boat, then flush engines with antifreeze you will need to make an adapter for this off a bottle, then run engines until antifreeze comes out do not Rev as there is no pressure! Then stall engine by putting fogging oil into carbs, turn fuel off disconnect batteries, spray engines with wd40 job done

If you spray body spray on under your arm pits your arm pits will smell like body spray for a period of time. If you recently had a shaving accident and there is a small cut on your arm pits the body spray may sting a little because some body sprays have irritating ingredients.

Try calling your local gun shops. You might want to consider purchasing pepper spray online... Just go to your search engine and type "pepper spray".

Technically you can! It is not advisable as Anti-Freeze will cause damage to the bodywork of your car and when you spray the washers it will of course end up on the bodywork somewhere.

with carborator - cover and spray down with soapy water Or newer cars - just spray down with soapy water

Need to check these things with a spray bottle of water. Spray these parts one at a time while the engine is running and see if the engine changes are flutters. Distributor Cap, Plug wires. Coil. and spray were the wires hook to the spark plugs. What ever you are spraying when the engine changes, then that part needs replaced.

They point the aerosol spray in whatever direction they want to go and spray. In space, a aerosol can is like a rocket engine on earth.

Start with doing a visual looking for disconnected vacuum lines and listen for a suction noise. With the engine running you can use a spray bottle with water and spray around the upper area of the engine, if and when you hit a vacuum leak you will hear the engine rpm's change.

Start the engine and spray WD40 on all vacuum connections. When you hear the engine RPMs increase you have found a leak.

The fuel filter on your 2001 Nissan Altima is located: Under hood, driver side or engine compartment, rear engine area, passenger side of master cylinder, mounted in fuel line. Do not attempt to change this filter while the engine is hot. Fuel will spray when you disconnect the fuel line so be prepared for the spray. Cove the filter with a rag to stop the spray.
