Antifreeze does not mean that the car will not heat up but to prevent freezing at low temperature. Now if the.radiator is full with the antifreeze and once the engine cools off , if the levels are not low then the radiator is good. however if there is high reduction of water then the radiator must be checked for leak which can be even at high pressure . Also make sure the radiator cap is good.
Secondly if the engine seems to heat up even on idling then the timings must be checked .Also check the water pump ,check on belt tension, check for engine tightness possible wear off within- hope oil, oil filters and periodic/.scheduled maintenance is done as required.

Could be that the heater core in the dash is leaking ,or you could have a bad hose or something leaking coolant in the engine compartment and steam is getting sucked into the air ducts.

white smoke may be antifreeze-does it smell sweet like hot antifreeze or oilly-if its antifreeze your head gasket will need to be replaced-it may not be loosing alot at a time but it would be going down-antifreeze level that is-Denny

White smoke on start up


Bernie, keep a check on your antifreeze level in you radiator, if the white smoke smells sweet its probrably antifreeze meaning you have a hole in your head gasket. or maybe a cracked head, Sometimes if a pressure check has been done on your radiator it will put too much pressure on a worn head gasket and create a pin hole. Usually this smoke will occur at first start up or after the car has sit for a while after running allowing antifreeze to leak into a cylinder and upon cranking the engine you will have the liquid burn off creating a white sweet smoke. As the gasket gets worse the smoke will get worse until it smokes all the time. Hope this helps. Also if the vehicle has ran hot lately it can cause a head gasket to blow. Keep me informed if I can help.

Smokes really bad at the beginning, but after you drive the car for 15 min or so it almost stops. What could that be?


Hi :) What is happening? you say Well when you shut the engine down the oil is hot and it runs by the valve stems because the stem guides are warren out and sits on the piston till you start the engine next time. It take a bit to burn it off then it burns clean till the next time you stop running the engine for any lenght of time.Take it in to the shop and have new valve guides put in it or unbrella seals put on under the valve spring this will stop the oil from leaking past the valve stems. I put a cup of transmission oil/Fluid/Dexron2/3 every time i change my oil to keep my valve seals soft and rubbery and it helps

I have a 1991 nissan pickup. The engine started getting hot, as i was driving it lost power and eventually shut off. I didnt see any water leaking so I checked the oil and antifreeze was in the oil. Now it...


I would really be concerned about the antifreeze in oil, sounds like head gasket at least or head, block problem, even if you dont see antifreeze leaking, the engine can burn it and exit through tail pipe-white smoke or steam (beyond just cold start-up)

My car recently shut off when i was driving in town. it did not have much oil in it and it had an oil leak i pushed it off the road and put oil in it but the car didn't start. i noticed the antifreeze tank...


Could be several things from radiator ,hoses,water pump, FREEZE PLUGS ,cracked head or block. You need to find out where the coolant is coming from to determine it.
If the car was hot and you poured fluid in it the block,head or head gasket could crack. If it was cold and you just had watr in it the block could crack or freeze plugs could have came out.

Yesterday, there was smoking coming from under the hood. There is an atnifreeze leak there but today, it wasnt smoking. Is it safe to be driving?


More than likely the antifreeze was leaking onto the hot exhaust manifold and/or muffler pipe. Since the car isn't hot anymore, its not smoking. Driving is not a big hazzard unless the steam prevents you from seeing or if you run the antifreeze too low, which will overheat your engine. I would fix the leak ASAP...

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..

My mileage is over 130,000 ansd my car smokes when i drive it. It's white smoke. What's wrong with my car?


white smoke means water or antifreeze. blue smoke means oil. black smoke means rich fuel mixture. So if it is white you are burning antifreeze which usually means you have a bad head gasket or intake manifold gasket. is your car over heating? that is the main symptom of a bad head gasket. how much white smoke are you getting if it is not much it could be just condensation and nothing to worry about.

Bought a 1996 Ford Taurus and it is running hot


If its boiling over then your coolant flow is blocked. I would start with replacing the thermostat sounds like its not opening.
