2 possibilities the thermostat might be stuck closed and you will need to replace it or if you have the a/c on and you arent moving very much or going at a slow pase this may cause an increase in pressure in you radiator and would cause it to over flow

Over heating , antifreeze leeking from that water


Hello,

If your water pump is leaking from the water pump for sure that is causing your over heating problem. I am sure that most likely the seal is gone. There is a main seal in the pump, and those are normally the first to go, and you are better off replacing the whole pump, that trying to fix it. Once your water pump is replaced , the over heating problem should be fixed. If pump is leaking it does not have the pressure provided to have the antifreeze and water to flow correctly through engine block and radiator.

Thanks Mike

1999 ford expedition. smells like antifreeze in the cab, worse when I turn on air conditioner ?? I saw a leak today at the firewall. I drove it about 5 miles stopped the car and it hasnt leaked...


This is likely the heater core leaking. Once it turns cold you will have foggy windows too.

When the heat is turned off the antifreeze stops flowing through the heater core, once it was all gone the leak would have stopped until the next time you need heat.

Antifreeze steam comeing through vents


Your heater core has a leak, it's like a small radiator that heats up and the blower motor blows air thru it to create heat in the car. It is leaking anti freeze into the heater box.

97 sable no heat leaking antifreeze


You need the cooling system topped off and the system pressure tested to find the leak and repair it then everything should be ok.

No heat , antifreez leak not visable...


A car this new should have a warranty right? the only other place for anti-freeze to go is through a blown headgasket into your oil. Pull out your oil dipstick and make sure it is not milky in color. If not check behind the engine and see if any coolant lines going into the firewall are leaking. When inside the car do you smell steaming coolant(anti-freeze) or hear gurgling? The temp gauge that stays on is the overheat indicator?
