If you don't get that issue looked after soon you will be looking at replacing your engine. Coolant is corrosive to the internal engine bearings.
First find out where the leak is coming from, You might get lucky that it's a bad oil cooler that failed in your radiator and all you need to do is replace the radiator. At worst you have a failed head gasket and your going to have to replace the head gasket or it could be a bad intake gasket.
Regardless have the issues addressed soon as possible before any internal damage happens. If no with smoke is coming from the tail pipe when the engine is running and the idle is still smooth. Good chance that the oil cooler has failed in the radiator and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

Take the cylinder heads off and on the gaskets where the oil goes through to feed the cams their is a rubber O ring around the hole this has failed and it forcing oil out under pressure into the cooling system ,happens a lot on peugeots but here it leaks down the side of the block and drips on the floor .Word of advice do not listen to bar room lawyers or bar room mechanics who all reckon they know it all and the more beer consumed the more they know.

Thermostat or water pump?


Sounds like a thermostat is being sticky. A water pump issue should cause the vehicle to over heat quickly while driving if it is not pumping.

Will a broken water pump cause anti freeze to mix with oil and drip


Yes, your water pump attaches to the front of the engine block. If a leak opens up between the two, coolant goes into the crankcase along with oil. That means water and oil are being circulated through the bearings and cylinders of your engine. Don't drive it in this condition.

your leak is likely in head leaking into the spark plug ignition area and burning of once vehicle is running check plugs for moisture before motor is hot, also can seal using blue rhino at auto zone I used on 6 vehicles and sealed all of them.

Going through alot of oil and antifreeze.... have oil where my spark plug is


The engine can burn alot of coolant before you see any smoke.
And having a cooling leak in the engine could cause it to run hot at times.
If you are adding coolant every week and don't see any leaks, the engine has to be burning it. Most of the time it is a blown head gasket and cracked head or block.

I have a 1998 Saturn. The reservoir often leaks water/antifreeze and light comes on to indicate. I have had water pump as well as reservoir replaced. Doesn't leak everday but still leaks. WHat is this?...


you need to find that leak, is the leak visible? if its not from radiator or the reservoir, the only other place I could think you can lose water is the head gasket. It happens to high miles and hard driver. 100k miles would likely be a head gasket. Leaking head gasket will also cause the engine temperature to rise and run super hot. antifreeze will leak through the head gasket down to your oil pan mixing oil and water. Check your oil by pulling the dip stick and see if you have oil mix with water; it will have a slimy looking colors, oil is light color and it should never be black. if it black than change your oil and inspect it afterward when the car has been running for while. when engine really hot cause the heat to effect the starter not to engage or start or engine is too hot to run. repairing head gasket could run anywere from 500-800 bucks.

My Explorer has the same coolant leak


Check closely where is it leaking from. If its coming out between the engine block and the cylinder head, very urgent depending how much is leaking, other like radiator or water pump can be temporary fix with sealer you buy at auto parts store although one has to monitor their engine temperature moore closely. Keep in mind any water leaks will cause nothing but overheat the engine. Water flow through out entire engine and cool the most important parts, the cylinder head where most heat created and need to be cool, if not the head can warp cause the head not to seat properly to the engine block, reaction would cause poor compression, rough idles, poor gas mileage, poor performance and ect. You can still drive the vehicle as long you pay attention to the temperature guage and the smell of the engine. You can smell if the engine is running hot, so just keep extra water container with you just incase you run low on fluid. Try not to run straight water in the systems, water reach it boiling point quicker than antifreeze.
