If youre sure that there is no leaks, drive the car continously up to 15 to 30 minutes, observe the cooling system. if it cool. replace only cylinder head gasket, if engine cooling not normal. check cylinder head and sub systems, replace p ings and gasket

Audi a6 quattro 2001 coolant disappears, engine overheats and white smoke comes out

Unfortunate you're losing coolant into the cylinders, where it's being burned off and exiting out the exhaust. When you initially added that cold coolant into the hot radiator, and hot engine (sit down) you likely cracked the engine block. Best case you just need to replace the head gasket.

My Pontiac is leaking antifreeze from the breathing hose on the coolant tank, please help

I'm not completely clear on what you mean, but here are some things to check.
1. Check the hose from the radiator neck to the overflow tank for cracks or leaks. If it's leaking the tubing can be purchased at an auto parts store. It's very inexpensive.

2. If it's leaking a lot into the over fill tank this could be an indication that your radiator cap is leaking at the seal, allowing coolant to bypass the spring on the cap and through the hose into the coolant overflow tank. Replace the radiator cap, these are about $10.

Coolant level drops after 2miles to nothing

It may also have been low enough on coolant that one filling wasn't enough. If it is leaking you should see a wet spot or puddle under the car. Also check inside the car to see if the floormats are wet to see if maybe the heater is the source of the leak. Coolant will be sticky to the hand.
Fill the bottle again and run the engine to let it warm up to operating temp. Turn the heater on to its highest settings and the fan as well. Watch the exhaust for signs of white smoke, that is a sign of coolant being burnt off in the engine and that would be a leaking head gasket.Also keep an eye on what is going on in the water tank. If the tank empties out shortly after you start the car, refill it until it stops doing this. That is a sign there was not enough coolant in the engine.
When the engine gets hot you will see likely see bubbling in the tank and probably see thecoolant level drop. DON"T open it now. The coolant is the same temperature as boiling water. Shut the car off and let it sit for 15 minutes or so and slowly unscrew the cap. You will probably get a hissing sound at some point with some bubbling. Stop turning the cap until that stops. Then you can remove the cap and add coolant. You may have to repeat this step more than once but a cuople of times should have the system back to near normal.
Keep an eye on your temperature and water tank for a few days. If the car continues to give you heating problems or using coolant it will need to be looked at to find out the cause. Hope this helps.

Digital dash reads out low coolant and runs hot.

it means just what it says..your low on engine coolant and that is causing it to run extra hot...this is not good! let car cooldown and take radiator cap off have a look inside with a flashlite..water level should be almost up to the filler neck. if you have the red dex-cool you"ll have to put in the same its not recomended to mix the green and red. if it doesnt your in luck just fill up a jug or get a garden hose and fill it up to the top if its low. leave cap off for now and put some water in the coolant tank if its empty only about halfway dont overfill. now start the engine and let it warm up for about a minute and see if the water level goes down if it does add a little more water up to the neck, now turn off the engine and let it stay like that for another minute to make sure trapped air can get out. Now put back on the cap. Now go for a 10 min drive around town and then see if the warnings have cleared and its running at a normal temp range. also park in a new locating so after you turn your car off you can check to see if its go a slow leak overnight.

Low coolant

Regular Prestone or Peak Anti-Freeze. You should always pour it in the coolant tank, as the radiator needs coolant, it is drawn in from the coolant tank to the radiator, and also the reverse, so you only want to fill it up to the "FULL" level on the bottle. Recheck it after it's been driven.

Low Coolant light

Sounds like your sensor unit in your coolant overflow tank. Like nearly everything man made that floats, they will eventually leak (become water logged). This is a relatively cheap fix, as long as the light is coming on and the coolant level in the overflow tank is between the MIN and MAX lines in the overflow tank. This means that the float in there is dropping below the actual fluid level (watter logged) and you need to get a replacement sensor unit (aka sending unit) for the overflow tank.

Otherwise, if the coolant level in the overflow tank IS BELOW the MIN level line on the tank, then you are losing coolant somewhere and that is when things start to get expensive (might be a radiator problem, head gasket, cylinder head, heater core, etc).

Engine coolant hot

fill the reservoir with the coolant. it is a GOOD thing you dont see steam or a leak I hope.YOU DO WANT TO CATCH THE PROBLEM BEFORE IT REALLY OVERHEATS OR YOU MAY HAVE MORE COSTLY PROBLEMS. fill the reservoir. BUT, it may only fill the "radiator" once you do this as it cools off. As the radiator water cools it sucks the reservoir water into the radiator. as it heats up and the water swells (increases in volume) it pushes the excess into the reservoir. when the engine is good and hot and you dont have any coolant in the reservoir, that is a sign that the radiator is low or empty also.
when the engine is cold, find the radiator cap and remove it, add as much coolant you can there. fill the reservoir also. If it has been several years since the radiator cap has been replaced, I would do that now ( it is a cheap investment). if the gasket on the cap is not sealing well anymore or the exspansion valve mechanism on the cap is not working properly anymore, then it will let coolant pump out into the reservoir and not hold radiator pressure. if the reservoir is empty the radiator itself is probably too low or empty.

Radiator is empty

Always fill you radiator & resevoir with a 50/50 mix of coolant / water. Your vehicle should have dexcool which is a red/orange colored coolant. You can buy a universal equivalent which is premixed and is yellow (not green). It is safe to add universal coolant but not green antifreeze. Premixed (it will say on jug) would be your safe bet. Fill the radiator, add to overflow tank to full cold line, run vehicle until fully warmed up. Let cool back down & then recheck.
Don't forget to check for is not normal to have your coolant get that low. You likely are leaking coolant.

If this helps please rate me!
You can do it.
