Antifreeze Leak - '99 Chrysler 300M


what you do is go to a radiator specialist shop and have a coolant pressure test done
most probably a cracked top plastic tank
as for the leak at the back , it could be a rusty welsh plug but the pressure test will also show that

Sugary burning smell while driving


That smell is most likely antifreeze. If the smell gets noticeably stronger when you turn on the AC/Heater, it is possible that your "heater coil" has started leaking. You will need the services of a professional if that is the case. Those are very hard to change.

Another possibility is your thermostat is not opening, causing your engine to overheat - steaming some of the coolant (antifreeze)/water mixture out of the system.

And thirdly, it is possible that someone spilled antifreeze on the radiator etc when adding fresh antifreeze - and you smell it after the engine warms up. If your car is not over-heating and you are not having to ad antifreeze/water to the radiator, then just keep driving. The problem will most likely go away.

I hope this is helpful to you. If yes, please take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

My 2000 ford contour is leaking antifreeze/coolant. i noticed that i would have to buy a gallon about 2-3 times a week. then this morning i saw the anitfreeze/coolant on the ground. when i dropped my kids...


Conway residents say someone is poisoning their pets."Some antifreeze tastes really good to a pet and they may drink it willingly, so if they have access to it there may be no limit to what they take in. I hope you don't live there. You may just have a leaking hose or a leaking thermostat housing (4 cyl). Get someone to check and get it fixed soon as you may ruin the engine. Fixing the leak will be cheaper then buying another engine.

Py 1997 plynouth voyager is leaking antifreeze could it be freeze plugs and where are they


They are called CORE plugs as when they are made they take out all the sand out of the holes and fit in plugs.But if your leaking water out and cannot find it then yes its a core plug... as all summer you use coolant min 20%,Winter coming on 20% Antifreeze. and soon as winter is finished you should flush out the engine and radiator as Antifreeze causes the block to go rusty as its cast iron and the core plugs must be BRASS not steel because antifreeze eats away the plugs
But the plugs are fitted 1Rear of engine behind the flywheel 3 either side of engine block and some times 3 or 4 in the heads under the rocker gear..
Let me know how you get on .. Ron

First are you adding antifreeze? The head gasket and the egr plate gasket have been know to leak antifreeze. #4 cylinder the head gasket like to leak and cause a rough engine running when cold till the antifreeze clears out. I don't believe it is the cat causing rhe problem. If it was, it would do it all the time. Don Suzuki tech
