Check for fluid coming out of the bottom of your water pump...it may only be a small trickle...you may have a hose slightly leaking, your drain plug on your radiatior may be leaking.

    start looking for the obvious, the waterpump, drain plug on the radiator, old hoses, loose connections on hoses, you may even have a freeze plug leaking

My car is needing antifreeze about every two days


Have your Cooling System pressure checked. Also check your oil and anti-freeze. If the oil is milky or the anti-freeze is oily you have a blown head gasket. Watch for white smoke (Steam) coming out of the tail pipe after it is warmed up. If you have white coming out that is coolant, black is fuel and blue is oil. After the pressure test if there are no leaks detected in the hoses then get a compression test to see which cylinder is leaking.

Most likely a frost plug, you may need a mirror to see it.
The head is not likely to just leak from the back, check for steam from the exhaust when hot.

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.

The code required by the radio is an anti-theft feature. Its put in place so that in the event that your radio is stolen from your vehicle, it will be completely useless to the thief. Take it to your dealer with your vehicle information and they should be able to enter the code there and re activate your radio for you.

Camry or Prelude for mechanic school?


I would be a bit leary of the Prelude, if it's loosing anti-freeze. Could be a blown head gasket or an anti freeze leak. Honda's are generally great cars for traveling and there alot of aftermarket performance parts for Preludes. Definately investigate the use of anti-freeze.

Antifreez type 1991 volvo? 4cyl


Volvo would like you to believe you need their o.e.m. and pricey anti-freeze to keep your cooling system from falling apart. NOT! Any good quality anti-freeze will perform well. Just be sure to mix it 50-50 with water when adding or changing, or using the 50-50 premix that's sold ready to use. More expensive because you're paying anti-freeze prices for water! I have used off-the-shelf anti-freeze in all my Volvos, which run 300,000 miles or more. You can extend the life of your radiator, water ump etc, but flushing the system every year or so, draining off the old coolant and adding a fresh mix.
