Question about 2000 Daewoo Nubira

1 Answer

My daewoo musso is leaking coolant, it has ocassional blue smoke. its not overheating according to the temp gauge but there is a horrible smell after driving. We're thinking corroded or blocked breather or maybe a gasket. Any suggestions? We'd rather try and look ourselves first before getting stung by a mechanic.

Blue smoke is not a good sign the car might not be showing hot but it still might be over heating. blue smoke is normalie caused by burnt rings due the car being over heated you may need to go to mechanic before the engine fails

Car is not overheating but reading low coolant and smells like coolant


check for a coolant leak and make sure that the coolant is at the radiator cap or you will get a false low temp reading on the gauge

What happens when your my 2003 Ford Windstar overheats and blows white smoke from tailpipe, but the needle on the temperature gauge stays at normal


If the temp gauge is at normal, then what makes you think it is overheating? Are you experiencing water being forced out of the cooling under pressure? That is what makes some think the car is overheating. White smoke from the pipe can be normal, but only for a short time after start-up. If you smell the exhaust and can smell an anti-freeze odor in it, then you probably have a blown head gasket, cracked head, or cracked block. This can cause over-pressurization of the cooling system and coolant overflow. Usually, overheating accompanies this issue and is normally the original cause of it as well.

Coolant boiling in resevoir.


It can be faulty coolant temperature sensor.Its not sensing exact coolant heat temperature so its overheating then required level.

Get the coolant pressure tested, its definitely leaking coolant. You will need to get the coolant running line.


Pressure test will help you to know from where exactly coolant/refrigerant is getting leaked.

Smoke coming through vents temp. gauge going up acting like its going 2 overheat turn heater on hot and smokes bad turn to cool and smokes a little my husband thinks it's the thermostat and wants to...


If the heater core is leaking, you would get a lot of steam that would smell "sweet". That would also leave you low on coolant, which could be a source of your overheating. If it's more of an electrical smell, you may have a blower motor or a blower motor resistor going bad, but won't cause the engine to overheat.

My leganza is over heating, could you tell me what I should do?


Is it overheating or just a gauge malfunction? Are you low on coolant? Check at coolant tank. If it is overheating, check for coolant leak at hoses. If no luck there, you might have a head gasket blown. Do you see white smoke coming from tailpipe? Do you see milky substance on dipstick or in coolant tank? These are signs that your head gasket has failed.

My honda accord wagon smells hot i stop running car, ther,s no leaks do i need a termostat?


You may have a bad thermostat or a weak water pump or a clogged radiator. Smell does not indicate if its hot. The gauge or coolant light might suggest its getting hot. You may have a fuel control issue that is overheating the catalytic converter which would smell or an oil leak that is dripping onto a hot surface causing a smell. You may have a real small coolant leak that you cant see that could cause this also.

Smoke coming out vents when defrost is on and temp gauge goes up and down in 1994 Taurus


The fluctuation in the temp gage indicates a low coolant situation. The smoke you see from the defroster vent is actually antifreeze that is leaking from the heater core somewhere and as the antifreeze evaporates from the heat it causes a vapor to produce. You should smell a very sweet smell when you see the vapor. If so it is definitely antifreeze. Find the leak and fix it. Then refill your coolant system to specs and you should be good to go.

91 gti 8valve overheating problem blows coolent smoke on the..


Hi,
I'm not familiar with your model to know if you have an engine temp guage or a light that would come on if the engine is overheated. You said the motor wasn't overheating under the hood... but you have an overheating problem? Maybe just a tad bit more info...
Are you losing coolant?
The water pump if bad, would probably leak or make terrible racket.
Just to take a shot at it, since you said it blows smoke through the dash... I'm assuming a kindof white smoke with a rather sweet smell? Have you noticed any wetness on the passenger floor at all? If yes to any of this, I would suspect as you mentioned, a leaking heater core. Hope this helps... Good luck!
