Question about 1986 Buick Century
I have a 1996 mustang 3.8 v6 and i was changed out my coolant today. I drove with no problem for about half an hour then parked it for 3 hours then cam back to my car. I was told to add more fluid once the car was ran and then parked for more then a hour. I added more coolant to the radiator and started driving. It was driving fine until i was goin up a hill in 2nd gear at about 3.5 RPM and was about to shift until my car started extremely smoking and turned off by itself. I pulled over to the side and opened the hood and there was coolant all over the place in my engine.I left the hood open for about a hour then the car was still smoking. I got the car towed to my house and i started it and there was smoke coming form the pullies where the belt is. Does anyone know where the smoke is actually coming from? Its definately not a radiator hose but i am in desperate need to get this car back on the road. Thanks for your help!!
If you drained all the water out the system needs to be blead always mesure the coolant/water so you can put the same amount in again there will be a bleeding screw on one of the hoses loosten and let all the air out. hope this helps
