I over heated,the serpentine belt snapped. Opened the hood to find steam rapidly coming out of both the antifreeze and out of the engine right by the head gasket. It wasn't smoke not blue or black jus


Perform a compression test on your cylinders. One unfortunate result of overheating is the blown head gasket. Without compression your motor will not run. Tester are not super expensive or some stores will lend tools.

Starter turns, won't start, overheated


You possibly have antifreeze in your engine where it dont belong, like the exhaust manifold if it was coming out of your exhaust. One reason it wont start is that either the head gasket went out and anitfreeze is leaking in that way or the manifold gasket is out and its getting in the combustion chambers to the pistons.

1994 Honda Accord DX radiator is blowing out antifreeze and car won't start.


Pull the plugs out and then crank the engine over if water comes out of the plug holes you have a busted head gasket which would give you compression in the coolant system thusblowing out antifreeze as well as overheating.

The car was leaking antifreeze and started smoking in 40 degree weather. I filled it and it stopped leaking, but the engine is still overheating. If its the water pump, how can I replace it on a 1992 chevy...


Is the antifreeze leaking out of a small hole on the water pump housing just behind the pulley?
You need to know exactly where the leak is coming from. If the pump is not leaking then there is another location.
Generally pumps either work or leak. They do not slow down and overheat the engine.
Where did the smoke come from? Under the hood or out the exhaust pipe? If you blew a head gasket and the exhaust was blowing steam that would cause overheating. The original leak under the engine would cause overheating that then will cause other problems like blown head gaskets.
Did you use stop leak or some quick fix? what did you do to stop the original leak?

I am a single woman that was definitely taken advantage of and sold a Saab 900 SE that was a lemon and every month something has fallen off of it or stopped working. Unfortunately I did not have the money...


Hi Carolyn

It sounds bad I have to be honest, you most likely blew the head gasket when the rad leaked, did the car overheat at all? did the smoke have a sweet smell to it or was it think smoke like oil etc please clarify

Regards

I heard a pop noise & saw smoke then seen that the car was over heating. so i pulled over stopped turned the car off , looked underneath & antifreeze was just poring out.


Sounds like you blew a radiator hose or a cooling system component. Find out where the water is coming from and repair it. You dont need to use antifreeze to find out where the leak is but once you get the system to hold water, you do need to put antifreeze back in. Also check the cooling fan to be sure it is working properly and the car is not over heating.

90 ford ranger heater trouble


Heater core or one of the hoses are leaking. Low on antifreeze now so no heat.
