Antifreeze doesn't evaporate so there has to be a leak in the cooling system
Have a pressure test done and have a compression test done to check for head and gasket.

P0440 = evaporative emissions system leak...check gas cap , hoses

P0151 = evaporative emissions systems sensors (O2 sensor, usually the O2 sensor between engine and catalytic converter on Cylinder Bank 2 (the side of the engine with the even-numbered cyclinders, usually left side from under hood if engine is mounted axially, rear of engine if it is mounted transversely)

Can i add antifreeze myself


when you top up the radiator you should only use antifreeze as it keeps the mixture right,use a universal type antifreeze,so you dont have any mix problems.

Rough idle, check engine light FLASHES,smell of engine coolant, yet no leak is visible


Go to an Autozone or Oreillys for a free engine scan. This will help you find the problem.

You could have an intake gasket or head gasket leaking into a cylinder. The scanner will show if a cylinder is misfiring and which cylinder it is. You can also get a loaner tool such as a Radiator pressure tester which can pressurize the system without the engine running. In some cases, antifreeze can evaporate or run off while the car is in motion.

Once you repair the part use some household detergent and hot water and clean the area you repaired. The smell from antifreeze will linger for months if you do not remove it. Also after you repair the problem, use the pressure tester again to insure the repair is holding.

Keep loosing coolet no leaksfound


You only have a few options here:

Coolant either leaks out, evaporates, or is exhausted through the engine. Check your oil & see if you notice any coolant mixed in, indicating internal seal issues. Also, you can have a small amount of coolant drawn into the engine cylinder & exhausted as steam or vapor and never notice. If only a small amount and no noticeable engine problems, evaporation. Engine miss sometimes & refilling anti-freeze often is an internal leak, generally the Head Gasket. Very rarely, a transmission (automatic only) has been found with antifreeze in it due to a leak in the radiator/transmission cooling system. Good Luck.

I would like to know what do I need to check first on a 2003 PT Cruiser if it is running hot Could it be the pressure cap? I have already had a pressure check, and it was ok.


You may want to service the cooling system if it has never been done before. The thermostat may have gone bad and needs to be replaced if it has never been replaced since the PT is 6 years old. After changing the thermostat flush out the old antifreeze and replace with new antifreeze with a mixture of 50/50 antifreeze/water. straight water will boil and steam out and straight antifreeze will over heat since it does not have the same heat transfer as water that's why your mix them 50/50. Old antifreeze will have a higher antifreeze concentration since the water will evaporate. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted. Be glad to help.

Location of the evaporative cannister solenoid? 2003 saturn vue


Depends if the engine is 3.0 or a 2.2?
3.0 purge is on the top, back side of the intake. Black, cylinder. Looks the same on a 2.2, but is located next to the air filter.
