SOURCE: My 2001 ford windstar lx van smells like coolant when i drive

Several things to check. Have the cooling system pressure checked. A quick and simple test. Puts system under pressure and helps to locate a leak. The coolant doesn't just go away, it's got to be leaking either externally or internally. Be sure that the radiator cap is checked too. It needs to maintain the proper pressure for the system
Sound like coolant is leaking on the exhaust system. This can result in the smell and you will not see a leak as it is evaporating when it hits the hot pipes.
Good Luck

SOURCE: 2004 Chevy Impala no heat from defrost or heater

No heat is often a symptom of low coolant, usually followed by overheat. There are other controls that regulate heater, but right now, re-fill the cooling system with engine running and heater on high, then check for leaks (coolant you lost went somewhere...you need to determine where) Low coolant will damage your engine. Take care of that first, then if heater still does not work, then do diagnosis on that. (if you loose the engine heat won't matter, will it!)

SOURCE: 2003 chevy impala impala shakes when brakes applied

If it only happens when braking, then it is definately you brake system. Most likely you rotors and pads need replacement. If you can do car work, then this is not a difficult job, but requires some wrenches. The parts can be purchased a lot cheaper on-line. A shop will get you for $300-$800. I bought all my parts for my 2001 VW passat for $200 shipped to my door. Good Luck.

2004 chevy impala overheating, loosing coolant, smell coolant sometimes


Intake Manifold gasket replacement fixed my very similar issue. New ones from GM are aluminum w/rubberized gasket - old ones plastic with a rubberized gasket - common failure in the 80-100k mile range. My mechanic did it for $620 included sealant,thermostat,valve cover gasket, gasket kit, coolant,pipe,pipe, manifold t and supercharger gasket.

2004 porsche cayenne turbo starts and then immediately shuts off


That's a lot of coolant to lose in that short amount of time- especially with no visible leaks. It sounds like you might be losing coolant to the cylinders which could be from a bad head gasket or a cracked block. Good luck, let us know what it was!

Leaking engine coolant. the coolant eventually all leaks out and car over heats.


Does the leak show up on the ground when you are parked with the engine running or stopped.
Determine where it's leaking from. Hose? near fire wall, near radiator. Water pump will leak when it's worn.
Can you smell it when you're inside the car? heater core.

Over heating. Replaced thernostat and radiator and serpetine belt. No leaks. Compression test good, cool air blows but not heater air. Dual electric fans blow. No antifreeze lost. Over heats while driving...


the 97 to 02 were famous for bad gaskets between the intake manifold and heads. this caused loss of coolant. pull oil fill cap off and see if is foamy on bottom, sniff for coolant smell in exhaust. suppose you would have noticed oil in old coolant as you drained it.

I have a 2004 Chevy Impala. I just recently noticed that I have heat while the car is moving but once I stop at a traffic signal the heat goes away and the water temp goes up on the gauge.


Check your coolant level. This will happen when air passes through your system; the engine will heat up rapidly, and the heater will go away. You do not want to run it that way, otherwise you'll be dealing with severe engine damage. If your coolant level is good by chance, you may have to look at replacing your water pump, thermostat, or both, but I'm confident that your are dealing with a coolant issue.

2006 Chevy Impala Heater only works when accelorater is depressed


Impalas are known for this issue, where the heating won't work properly.... usually caused by trapped air/bubbles in cooling system or slightly low coolant level. Park car so that the right front side is elevated and remove the coolant OVERFLOW bottle cap (NEVER the radiator cap) while engine is running.. This should allow the trapped air to escape. Also add a bit more coolant if needed.
