Is there white smoke behind you while you drive if os the reason your loosing antifreeze and shaking is a blown head gasket, its is very common on those year vehicles and it is not advised to fix them due to the nature and cost of the repair.
Sorry to ofer the bad news

I would have the radiator checked and also have a presser check done too. As far as it shaking, I have no clue. Take it to a mechanic. You can put water in it too
If you go anywhere don't go far and take antifreeze or plenty of water.

Pressure test the radiator for leaks if it holds pressure start the engine. And check if pressure rises and keeps rising ,if it does it points to blown gasket or cracked head. A faulty thermostat can make it over heat so check it out . I would not mix the anti freeze as a lot of them don't mix well. put the anti freeze in all year as it stops corrosion of the cooling system.

1997 Lincoln Town Car. The anti theft system goes off at all hours with nobody around the car. This happens several times a week. You can shut it off by just clicking the door unlock on the remote. Whats...

Hello, I had the same problem when my Lincoln was new. Sometimes the battery starts to short out internally and it triggers the alarm. The Dealer put in a new battery and the car was fine from then on.

You also could be having a problem with the AirRide. Some will compensate to keep the suspension from bottoming out and when the battery gets low enough, it will trigger the car Alarm.
You could leave yourself a note on the car seat and open the trunk and shut off the AirRide when it is parked as a test.

If you come out and the suspension has dropped, you will know the AirRide is to blame and act accordingly. Use your reminder note to avoid driving without the suspension being turned on.

Have your battery tested in the meantime. Autozone, Oreillys, and Advance will test it free and scan your car free too!

Honda has a blue anti-freeze that comes in their radiators. It doesn't have additives that can damage the water pump. Look on the back of the anti-freeze and get one recommended for honda or go to a dealer.

2006 PT Cruiser. Where does the anit-freeze get put in at? The radiator cap says"Do Not Remove". Do you at at the reservoir?

The anti-freeze is put in the radiator. I know that the radiator cap says,"Do Not Remove". Do not be afraid though. This warning is only applicable when the engine is warm and running.
You can open the radiator cap when the car has not been used for about 6 hours without any danger.
Like you can park your car overnight and put the anti-freeze in the morning. Just take not to splash the anti-freeze onto your clothes.
Thank you.

Anti freeze smell when car is shut down

do u smell coolant in the car when te doors are closed? if not it is not the heater core, have you had the system pressure tested at a shop? If I had to guess the 2 area's that would cause this are loose radiator hose clamps that just seep, not enough to get to the ground, but enough to smell the coolant, the other a slight leak at the water pump weep hole on the underside of the water pump, this can also be a seep and not reach the ground. Try adding a can of Alumiseal radiator and block sealer, comes in a little aluminum colored tube, about $3 US

Doors keep freezing shut in michigan weather

From you description I suspect water is getting into the door latch. Then it freezes and stops the latch from moving properly. The solution is to keep the water out and the best way to do that is to make sure all the rubber seals around the window and door are working properly and in good condition.
