Hi there,I posted this before without putting in my full e-mail so this may be a repeat.Anyways my car is leaking antifreeze from the passenger side front.The resevoir was almost empty and the radiator was filled to top.It has been extremely cold where I live well below 0,and lots of snow.This may be a slow leak as with the snow and cold you tend not to eyeball whats going on underneath the car.This is an old car and had the radiator replaced 2 years ago when I bought it as well as the timing belt which the water pump was done at that time.Any advice cause I do tend to worry,car problems are above my expertise and just hoping its a simple dry rotted hose perhaps??? Thanks

that is because it is antifreeze. you have a failed gasket or cracked block and the antifreeze is getting into the combustion chambers and then puffed out the exhaust. this is very bad and needs a fix immediately.
Hi if you make sure all the windows are up you can shut the doors and lock them using the key this should then reset the alarm then if you open the door using the key this should then turn the alarm off.
let me know what happens ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
YOU WILL NEED A HAYNES REPAIR MANUAL.IT WILL SHOW AND TELL YOU HOW TO REMOVE RADIATOR.I DONT KNOW YOUR CLIMATE.IF YOU LIVE IN VERY COLD CLIMATE.YOU NEED MORE ANTIFREEZE IN COOLANT SYSTEM THAN WATER.WATER WILL FREEZE CAUSE PROBLEMS.
It might be a leak in the resevoir itself. There is a hose to allow the radiator to "****" new fluid into the radiator - check it first. It should be long enough to "freshen" the connection by cutting off a little bit and using the american style clamp.
I had the same problems with my Acura Legend. On the problem with the running hot and the idling up and down, your cooling system is low. Fill your cooling system start it up and look for leaks, steam, or etc. repair and refill and your problem should be cured if the cooling system is full. At this time i'm working on the other problem. Good Luck
