Whoa, you have got a problem! This is an indication that the head gasket is leaking on this cylinder. This vehicle needs to go into the shop immediately!
If you overfill the reservoir and radiator with antifreeze, it will generally expand as it gets hot and spill out of the reservoir. When it does that, it will usually spill onto the hot engine and create "smoke".
The most effective way to clean up an antifreeze spill is to use kitty litter. You pour the kitty litter over the entire spill and let it set for several minutes. After it has set, use your shoe or a gloved hand to grind the kitty litter into the spill in circular motions.
Cat litter as it absorbs
You have a leak in the system . Get it checked and repaired before it damages the engine.
then you should have your radiator flushed because you have rust in it. FYI: antifreeze can strip the paint off of your it you spill it. Also, you may need to replace your radiator if the antifreeze is leaking, it may be through a rusted/corroded portion of the radiator.
Yes, if it is glycol base the vapors can cause headaches and nausea,and if strong enough can cause brain damage
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 )
It wont do any ham, if you are a clean ind tidy freak just wash is of wit a bit of water.
yes, but only partially. otherwise coolant will spill all over the ground. its toxic to pets and bad for the environment.
Blown head gasket. More common on a catera is a cracked oil cooler, head gasket problems are very rare on them.
Spill is a verb (to spill) and a noun (a spill).
Not sure, but since antifreeze is a liquid, you would probably have better luck using an absorbant solid. I worked a gas station once and we used kitty litter for gas spills.
Take normal safety precautions and be careful not to spill it on the ground. Cats and dogs seem to like it's taste, but it's VERY poisonous to them.
Do not spill any fuel. Ensure all electrics are turned off to avoid a spark.
Check all the coolant hoses and pipes, especially where they connect (top and bottom of the radiator, connections to the engine and water pump). If there is no antifreeze in the oil registered on a dipstick, are you sure the antifreeze isn't just trickling down the side of the engine?? If it is doing this it will gather at the seal of the oil pan and travel to the lowest point, where it will then spill over, looking very much like it is leaking from the oil pan when in fact the leak is elsewhere.
Through a key, yes. But if you see a spark, do not pull out the pump, because gasoline will spill, and ignite. So be careful.
the last oil spill was the oil spill in the Gulf Of Mexico
Removing a plastic cover on the pillar beside the passenger's seat (beneath the seatbelt exit point) reveals the radiator cap. Ensure the engine is cold before removing. Take care when filling, because water can spill into the cab.
No it will not. YEAH, BUT IT DID ON MY 1998 DODGE RAM 15 PASSENGER VAN... EVEN WITH MY VAN PARKED ON A 20 DEGREE SLOPE...
The The Deepwater Horizon oil spill, also referred to as the BP oil spill or the Gulf of Mexico oil spill is the worst Oil spill known in the history.
Spill the beans, perhaps?
Oil spill=Oil Oil=$ Therefore Oil spill=$
That's what it's meant for. But then again it depends on what type of radiator you are talking about. It's meant for automobile radiators. Just make sure you don't spill it or allow anyone/anything to drink it. It can kill you.
Don't spill the beans.
Spill valve is a overflow valve.
