Low coolant level due to the leak is a problem. The water pump or the radiator or a hose to the radiator could be the problem.

Have the car filled up with coolant and pressure test it to 15 or so psi to see where the drip is exactly coming from at a garage.

Smell of coolant and smoking


smoke from exhaust could be cracked head or blown head gasket but normally when one of these two things happen it runs crappy if it runs at all smoke from under the hood you may have a pin hole in your radiator or hose or even heater core put some stop leak in it watch for puddle of anti-freeze under the hood and on the ground keep a close eye on your tempature gage and a close eye on you anti-freeze levels and dont add fluid when the motor is hot this will crack your heads good luck.

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu the overflow bucket keeps losing tha fluid and running hot but I don't see anything on the ground


could be leaking while your driving down the road. check the bottom of the hood and see if the cooling pump is spraying the coolant around(the coolant that comes Chevys is sometimes very corosive to the aluminum parts in your coolant system). should be a wet spot by were your belts are if the pump is leaking. try fushing your coolant.

My car is running out of Anti-freeze rapidly,but there is no visible leak under the car or in the engine


You must have a intake manifold or head gasket problem, check to see if the oil level is high, if so it's most likely a intake gasket. Running a engine with this kind of problem won't last long.

I have a 2001 Chevy Blazer. While driving it and running the airconditioner I can smell coolant. I'm having to add coolant regularly, it's obviously leaking somewhere, but I don't see any on the ground or...


Maybe the coolant is leaking into a cylinder, slowly and also leaking out of the head gasket to the atmosphere when running under the increased load of the a/c.

If having to add coolant regularly, you're right, it must be leaking somewhere. It could be leaking out onto a hot part of the exhaust so look around there.

2000 dodge caravan 3.3L is over heating


Hello, If your car overheats and damages the engine, you have no one to blame but yourself. Keep your eyes on the temperature gauge and never let the needle move into the red. Pull over before it gets too hot. And to resolve this follow this steps:

1. Turn off the engine.

2. Wait. If the engine is steaming, don't open the hood.

3. Pull the hood release lever under the dashboard to open the hood when the car has cooled completely.

4. Walk around the front of the car, reach under the hood, find the latch and squeeze it. As you squeeze the latch, pull up and open the hood.

5. Check the coolant reservoir tank first. It's a plastic jug that has a small hose running to the radiator. The reservoir can be filled when the engine is hot (except on German and Swedish cars, the plastic reservoir is also under pressure, so don't open when the engine is hot).

6. Open the radiator cap with a rag. Remember: open it only after the engine has completely cooled. If you're not sure, don't open the cap. If you open the cap while it's still warm, you may burn yourself with steam or hot coolant. Open the cap slowly, as if you were opening a bottle of soda that has been shaken up.

7. Examine the radiator. Look inside and see if there's coolant left. If needed, fill to the top of the radiator.

8. Put the radiator cap back on.


9. Check to see that the upper or lower radiator hose, or any of the heater hoses, hasn't burst.

10. Restart the engine.

11. Watch the temperature gauge obsessively. Don't let the needle go into the red. Turn off the engine if the gauge approaches the red zone.
Thanks
