Hi I am Vortash the first thing you should check is the fluid level ( water ) in the radiator bottle .. and the oil to see if there is any water in it if you have a heat problem the head gasket can leak allowing water to mix with the oil .. this causes the oil to turn creamy white and reduces it's protection to the engine .
The best thing for you to do is have the vehicle checked over now as if the head cooks you could be looking at a couple of thousand dollars for repair in this country The UK it would cost about a thousand pounds to have a head skimmed and the gaskets replaced due to overheating and at todays currency exchange thats a lot of dollars ..Have a compression test done on the cylinders this will tell you if you have a gasket problem , The readings per cylinder should be between 130 to 150 per cylinder any lower and you have a problem .. regards Vortash

Why is car pouring out anti-freeze from behind the passenger side front tire; running hot after about 15 mins of driving at speeds over 40 mph. I removed the thermostat & refilled with anti-freeze

when it is pouring out. why didn't you open the hood to see where it was coming from. if its coming out of the overflow that would be easy to see.

Can i top radiator up with water on pt cruiser 2001

If you live in a warm weather climate that does not get below freezing temps than temporarily topping off with water until a repair is made is fine. Anti-freeze has other properties besides keeping the coolant from freezing. It also helps keep the engine cool by more efficiently transferring heat out of the engine. It also has anti-corrosion additives that keep metal parts from corroding.

So although it may seem that anti-freeze has only one purpose it actually has several.

The coolant is leaking from my cadillac escalade 2002 do u know why

It could be your water pump gasket or thermastate gasket. Have you had any one of them parts replaced recently? They could have put the gaskets on slightly off center causeing it to leak. Find where the leak is coming from. Sometimes the gaskets if old do leak. And if you drive make sure you to watch the temperture gage. Shut off if it gets to hot or you could do damage to your motor. Good luck!
Also if its a slow leak you can put water in it if you not going to get it replaced right away. But make sure to use anti freeze if you think its going to get below 32 degrees soon. Because just water will freeze but for warm weather its a quick fix until you can get it to the mechanic.
