    car started smelling like antifreeze, started smoking real bad while driving cut off in the middle of driving. tried to restart, got it going, made it home and opened the hood and smoke was shooting out of the middle of the engine so much that i had filled the whole neighborhood. i let sit for a couple of days went back out and refilled it with coolant and it started right back up, people are telling me that it is either the intake or head gaskets.

There is a small heater hose on the pass side rear from the firewall(heater core) to the intake manifold. the plastic manifolds have a tendency to split where the hose fitting goes into the intake. If that is where it is leaking the manifold needs replacement.

Leaking coolant after radiator replacement


If you are talking about the reservoir that hose is the overflow hose.
Its possible the shop did not release all of the air pockets from the system and some coolant came out with the air bubbles.
The tank should be about half full hot and cold.

I have a 2004 Tahoe and noticed that when operating the heater function this morning, the air was cold. When I drove it for a bit, it started to get warm again. Also, noticed the temp. going over normal...


head gasket leak will act that way when an if it gets bad will smoke white exhaust.will also leak antifreeze into oil so watch oil an frequent oil changes might extend time but will ultimately need new headgasket to avoid damage to engine...think about repairing before damage 2engine.

The removal of the heater hose under the intake


Do a little research on the hose first. Some are preformed and they resist kinking better than a straight universal hose that may be harder to bend into place.

If you do this repair with the engine cold it will save you some antifreeze. There will still be leakage but less than on a warm engine. After you have the new part, cut off the old hose and it will be easier to remove the hose clamps.

Hopefully the original spring clamp will be on the hose ends. Do not use the screw type clamp as they always have uneven pressure. Slip off the hose clamp by squeezing the tabs and once removed slit the old hose to keep from being rough on the metal parts that you must remove the hose from.

Sometimes a little water to lube the new hose will help the new hose slip over the metal fixtures.

Hope this helps.
