You did not mention which engine you have but only three things I can think of that will do that. You need to get underneath and check freeze plugs, head gasket and block itself (for cracks). Leaks aren't that hard to find but you need to look!

SOURCE: I have a 1994 Honda accord ex. It is leaking antifreeze

Hello, it seems you have a bad water pump, the smoke comes from the antifreeze touching hot engine parts that causes steam which looks very much like smoke. I recommend you do not drive the vehicle in this condition to avoid damage to internal engine parts. If you need the engine diagram please let me know, I'll be glad to send you one. God bless.

I have anti freeze leaking from the drive side of the engine on a 2008 Mini s clubman around the the thermostat area does any one know for sure if it's the thermostat housing or a hose that leaking?

if the hose clamp is tight it is possibly the housing, if you squeeze the hose near where the leak is you may be able to see the coolant leaking if the hose is split or has a pin hole in it

My 1994 chevy caprice is leaking water

will try to help. where is the leak coming from? can you tell?under the front of motor where the engine fan is? could be water pump. could be a busted hose,upper or bottom radiator hose.there are 2 hoses that run to your heater core at the firewall or dash panel, could be there. leaking from sides of engine? could be a freeze out plug rusted through or if it's gotten below freezing and you did'nt have anti-freeze, most likely a freeze plug, they are designed to save your engine block from busting when you don't have anti-freeze in freezing weather. if you can repost your problem with a location, front, sides, or inbetween the back of engine and transission, i can help you. hope this helps and thank you for choosing

I got a 1996 buick century with a 3:1 and its leaking anti freeze some were on the driver side of the motor and i dont no what it is to i can fix it. It didnt leak till it got warm out so i was thinking it...

If the antifreeze is leaking out behind the exhaust manifold then i would say you have a freeze plug leaking . The plug is located on the sides of the engine block. They can be a real job to get out and replace. If you see the leak in the location i described then i would take it to a repair shop for repairs. Have them to inspect all the freeze plugs for damage. Hope this will help you.

Hi, just got advice from u, but local know it all said something about freeze plugs, what are they?

freeze plugs are brass shallow cup like inserts-about 1 inch wide that are pressed into the side of the block a v-8 would have about 3 on each side and as the name freeze-out plug suggests back when water was used in engine if water froze the plug would pop instead of water/ice cracking block - their on the side of the engine block if one is leaking replace will see anti-freeze/water weeping or dripping on side of block by plug

I have a 1994 Honda accord ex. It is leaking antifreeze

If your antifreeze is leaking into your engine oil, it will destroy the engine quickly. Check the level of both. need to get a pressure gauge on it to apply pressure to the cooling system to see where the coolant is going first. White smoke is a sign of coolant in the engine oil.
