Could just be a coincidence. But check the fusese and relays under the hood. See if they look like they got sprayed with the anti freeze and blew out.

If there is a crack in the head leading into the crankcase the water could be dumping into the oil. Look at the dipstick. Also, water could be dumping into the exhaust ports. I think you need a mechanic smarter than you or me.

2002 Nissan Altman looseing anti freeze but nothing under the car


Many possible causes. Leak can be when you drive, but not show on your driveway. The heater could be leaking into the passenger area, though you'd likely smell the "maple syrup" smell of anti-freeze.

It's also possible that you have a head gasket leak into the coolant, causing the overheating, and blowing some of your coolant out. Get a compression test on the cooling system, and a compression check on the cylinders.

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.

My truck is leaking anti-freeze between the engine block and transmission bell housing. Anti-freeze leaks onto the crossover exhaust pipe. Any ideas on how to fix this cheaply?


There is a freeze plug back there that must have came out. The plug is cheap, but you have to take the transmission off to get to it.

1999 trans am loosing anti freeze no signs of leak


Not good. If you are loosing a measurable amount, with no apparent leak, 2 things could be happening. #1, you are loosing anti-freeze into your crankcase. To check for this, pull out dipstick. If you have coolant in your oil, the oil on the end of the stick will have a milky white tinit to it...like coffee with cream, except thicker. The other possible way to loose coolant is thru the exhaust. You can check this by seeing if you have moisture dripping from the tailpipe, or by holding your hand at the exhaust termination. If moisture forms on your hand, then you are loosing coolant thru the exhaust. These 2 conditions are caused by either a blown head gasket, or a cracked head.

Anti freeze leeking


I have seen a couple of these now with headgasket leaks to the outside of the block just as you describe. I solved them both with a stop-leak additive, not something I would normally use, but I really didn't want to pull the heads because the exhaust studs always break on these engines. I would find out for sure where the leak is before proceeding though. If it's a hose or frost plug, you'll have to repair it properly.

Anti freeze leak


hi are you overheating and are you having to fill it up because it is leaking or were you just toping up and is it coming out of the overflow on the expansion bottle to find a leak that at first appears not to be leaking the best way to find it is to put a pressure tester on it see if the pressure goes down as it will if there is a leak but then you will see it and don,t take the water cooling systems caps off when hot yates210456

Losing Anti-Freeze


hi get it prussure tested if you are correct in saying there is no sign of a leak or signs of water in the exhaust then you will have a leak and what is happening is it is evaporating as it leaks hence on sign of leak usually theseleaks are found where hose are near something hot example exhaust manifold the pressure tester will make the leak visable yates210456
