Question about 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier
Car is fine outher then that had some places put it on preasure test no leaksfound but 4or5 hours later there is antifreeze on ground I was told it may be valve cover gascate what do you think
There should be no anti-freeze under the valve covers, just valves, rockers, springs, and oil. If you are getting any antifreeze leaks at the valve cover then you have a cracked head. Since the engine has been pressure tested and has passed, my guess would be that the coolant reservoir is overfilled. Drain it down to the correct level and see if it does it again. If you are getting a strong sweet antifreeze odor when the car is running, you may be in need of a heat core. My PT Cruiser would leak sporadically, and after running a pressure test, it turned out that the 16 pound radiator cap I had on the car was losing pressure at around 8 pounds. so it would only lose antifreeze when it was really hot and/or I was running the AC.
