Pressurize system, only two places for fluid to go, inside engine or outside, if its not leaking outside engine when pressurized, that answers your question,head gasket leaking at full temperature, heat equals expansion, it will get worse before it gets better. if you decide to have it fixed make sure you have head set to machine shop for pressure test and warped test and repair or it will leak in a month or so, it only takes one overheating to warp a head

If there isn't a puddle of coolant forming on the driveway after the car sits for awhile and there isn't a puddle inside the passenger compartment, then the problem must lie in the cylinder head or engine block.

The most common cause is a leaking head gasket.
You can burn a gallon or more per month without any noticeable signs.

2005 Dodge Ram1500 White Mist/smoke from exhaust pipe.

One of the gaskets has blown at a point where the a water jacket is blowning into the cylinders but not mixing with an oil jacket on the heads. Try to use some Bars Leak and see if you can get it to seal and if not, their are also aluminum shavings mixed with sealer for some of the worse problems. If it seals you will then know that it will need a gasket replacement at some point

1993 Cavalier has coolant loss. It's losing the

you should have the cooling system pressure tested and inspected for a leak that may only show up under could be a slow leak from the water pump,frost plug,head gasket which wouldn`t show up in the oil,heater sounds like a small leak but this is the best way to start to find it.

My car loses antifreeze, No sign of leaks.

If you are sure it has no leaks and this has been verified with a pressure test being done by a shop then you may have a leaking engine cylinder head gasket. I would suggest that you get under the car and look for white powdery deposits that are left by coolant leaks, also have the system pressure tested, this requires a special tool.

I've had to fill my coolant 3 times this week.. I've put about 500ml in on monday, wednesday and friday. If i do not do this then my truck will overheat. I took it in on monday and the mechanics...

Sounds to me like the head gasket could be leaking not to the ground, but to the cylinder. Is there white smoke at any time indicating water/coolant is making its way to the cylinder? If so, then the head gasket does have a leak. Maybe try some head gasket repair for $30 from Bar's Leaks at Advance Auto or Autozone to try to seal it without removing the head. If that doesn't work, then a new head gasket may be the solution for this case.

Another possible site of leakage is a radiator cap that has a weak spring and doesn't hold 15 psi or so pressure. When the technician pressure tested the system, it's likely they took the cap off for the leakdown test and replaced it with the pressure tester gauge and pump. Also, check the overflow tank to see if it has a pinhole leak in it. If there is a small leak there, then that could explain the loss of coolant.

Is there a smell of antifreeze/coolant after the car is shut off? If there is, there is likely a leak somewhere.

The 2000 Ford Windstar that I have is using water. I fill it up with 2 containers of antifreeze and the next evening it needs some more added. I do not see any visible leaks in the driveway or when it is...

Engine coolant that is disappearing and leaving no visible trace is NOT a good thing. You most likely have a blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder head. (engine coolant going out the exhaust) Also check your oil to make sure the water is not getting into your crankcase. If it is, the oil will be over-full and will look like a chocolate milk-shake.

My civic did the same thing, twice, no over heating on the gauge, but the head gasket on both engines broke in the same place, #1 cyl. there is a TSB on the head gaskets, I replaced it with a felpro head gasket, had the head checked for cracks and decked, runs smooth and my wife gets 40 MPG
Pull the #1 spark plug and check for coolant on the plug. make sure you flush the cooling system.

99 Grand Am was leaking coolant from the over flow?

could be that it was hot or could be that you have a blown head gasket. If the engine got hot once it could have been enough to blow the head gasket. Does it blow it out after it warms up every time?
