1998 Neon leaking antifreeze

My 1998 Neon overheated and lost all antifeeeze. I added some no, and see it leaking, but can't tell where the leak is. The top and bottom hose and radiator are fine. Where else could the antifreeze leak from?

There could be a leak in the radiator or the water pump. Or the overflow coolant bottle but that normally won't drain all of the coolant. Fill up the radiator when the car is cold and start the car and keep an eye on it to see where the leak is coming from.

1998 Chrysler voyager van water leaking form heater core. once water is added in to radiator makes no difference using antifreeze

As long as the coolant is full, You won't have problems with heat. Check the rest of the system for leaks. Can't find a leak and still gets low. 2 possibilities. Heater core is leaking or head gasket is leaking. I would lean towards the heater core because of the water inside.

Car overheats from time to time. checked antifreeze and added some. now I'm having acceleration problems as well. After driving it for a little while I can't go past 30 mph and then a little while later it...

May have a bad thermostat responsible for overheating and smell. Till resolved turn on heater full blast and open window!
Continue to monitor for leaks and lack of pressure in cooling system. Fill expansion tank to the mark and make sure all hoses and clamps are tight at radiator and heater core.

I just don't know what kind of antifreeze my neon takes. its a 1998 Dodge Neon (sport). I had a leak and now i need to know what kind to put in it. i bought it used so i dont have a manual

Use any good quality, brand-name engine coolant, preferrably pre-mixed. If not pre-mixed be sure to use only de-mineralized water.

Car losing antifreeze water, no visable leaks, car overheating. 1998 buick century, v6

if you have no visible leaks and it is overheating then it sounds like you have a head gasket leak internally.the coolant is going some where .get the cooling system pressure tested to make sure you don`t have a leak externally.if the coolant is not leaking out the radiator then this indicates the thermostat is not stuck.what ever the problem is change the thermostat at the time of repair.

Overheated yesterday put antifreeze in bc it was almost empty did fine now its overheated again

Well Shelly the antifreeze is exiting the cooling system through a leak somewhere. Pouring more antifreeze in is not going to fix the leak. Often the leak is external to the engine and you can see a big puddle form on the ground where the car sits, common examples are burst hoses, leaking radiator, and a leaking heater core can create a wet mess on the passenger side floor. Other leaks such as bad gaskets and cracks in the head and block can cause the antifreeze to leak into the cylinders and lubrication system. First you must find out where the antifreeze is being lost, then figure out if the repair is worth it.

My antifreeze is leaking out of my radiator .....HELP : (

adding antifreeze on its own can be bad for your motor.. it needs to be added with water.. does it leak from your radiator cap/ overflow hose or from the radiator core.. ckeck you thermostat as well. it stays closed when the water is cold and opens when it gets hot.. it sounds like it could be stuck shut..
