    thanks but thier is no smoke coming out and the engine oil is normal.

    I've never heard of antifreeze getting into the transmission, ever. Check your oil dipstick, and look for coolant, or a mucky substance on it. Check the floor on the passenger side of you vehicle for wetness. We'll go from there.

It's possible for the antifreeze to be leaking into the cylinders. If this happens, it'll usually smoke a little out the exaust. Hope this helps!

Why does my car lose antifreeze


did you replace the radiator cap. most people forget about this very important part, but with out a pressure test its almost impossible to find the laek unless you can see it. make sure yo run the vehicle & get it up to temp so the coolant will circulate!!!

"radiator is possibly losing antifreeze saw liquid


The only thing I would add at this point to what brad Brown posted is it may be a yellow in color liquid. Prestone is yellow. Unless you have a cracked radiator because it was damaged from going over a curb or going in a ditch the leak is most likely a bad radiator cap or a result of over heating. Let us know what you find and I am sure one of us will get this solved for you. I can not stress enough how important it is for you to avoid using Radiator Stop leak Products. They will clog your engine cooling channels and damage your motor.

I am having a problem with antifreeze smell and leak. I can't see where the leak is coming from but I do see spots on the ground. It does not over heat but it does have a sent of pancake syrup once heated....


LEAK COULD BE COMING FROM RADIATOR.WHEN YOU FIRST START VECHICLE UP IN MORNING LET ENGINE IDLE TO GET UNTIL THERMOSTAT OPEN AND COOLANT PRESSURE BUILD UP. TURN ENGINE.OFF. RAISE HOOD YOU WILL SEE LEAK. THE COOLANT PRESSURE WILL PUSH OUT ANTIFREEZE.LOOK FOR LEAKS AROUND TOP RADIATOR HOSE AND LOWER RADIATOR HOSE.LOOK ON SIDES RADIATOR AND LOOK BELOW RADIATOR AREA WHERE COOLANTS FANS LOCATED RADIATOR CORES WILL LEAK AND LOOK AROUND WATER PUMP + BYPASS HOSE + CHECK HEATER HOSES TO HEATER CORE THAT GOES THROUGH BACK LOWER FIRE WALL.

I am not sure if it the water pump, but we are losing water and there does not seem to be any leak in the coolant reservoir.


A water pump would not likely cause loss of water,mainly overheating problems.First fill the radiator full and the overflow full,you can use water to do this,it is not necessary to waste antifreeze.You do not need a 100% mix of antifreeze.During winter where it gets below freezing,you really only need about 70% antifreeze to prevent freeze.Maybe a little more if you are 1 or 2 states from Canada.If you open the hood and let the car run,watch the tubes and the radiator and the hoses,follow anything hooked up to the radiator.If you end up getting a big leak or puddle,dilute it down with tons of water.Birds for some reason like the taste of antifreeze however it kills them.Good luck!

Any coolant loss is significant in any car. Having replaced all those components leaves only the gasket or head as possible suspects.The gasket can fail in an area that does not allow oil to mix with the coolant and the same applies to possible cracks in the heads or warping. Have the system pressure tested to see if it has leaks.

95 escort heater core


Have you assured yourself it's the heater coil. Possible, but it can also be a small hole in one of the hoses or even in the radiator, the heat can travel up to the window causing steam and also give that odd antifreeze smell. Can you see any leaks or is it losing a lot of antifreeze?

1995 ES 300 - antifreeze is draining from reserve. took to a mechanic who did diagnostic. said everything was fine. said no antifreeze in radiator so he topped off. 2 weeks later, the car is running hot...


Is the reserve tank cracked or have a deteriorated hose going to the radiator? Remove the tank to find out. A bad seal on the radiator cap can also lose fluid. A coolant leak anywhere can deplete the coolant level in the radiator and reserve tank. Check your owners manual for antifreeze type and mix ratio with water.

Radiator water loss


heat temperature evaporates water, therefore the water level will decrease on a more than daily basis as the vehicle is used. This is just one of the reasons for water loss (or usage). The radiotor drain plug migh be loose or worn. the plug is a white plastic like bolt on the base side of the radiator. Some hoses may be loose, worn or broken. the radiator itself may have a leak somewhere within the accordions. pour in some radiator stop leak.
also try coolant instead of water; coolant has a less evaporative density than water.
