Loosing antifreeze (no leaks anywhere) white smoke from exhaust and exhaust smells like antifreeze check my oil and oil is clean added antifreeze directly to radiator (guy from advanced auto told me to do...


Your intake manifold may be cracked. It is plastic and is know to cracking. If you take a flash light and look behind the intake, you should see a small puddle of antifreeze or a slight crack. You will need to replace the intake manifold and the gasket, possible do a complete head job on the car since it is already leaking through.

What causes bubbles to come to the top of the radiator


You weren't very specific as if there were any other problems that made you notice this condition however a few things that may cause it would be a leaking head gasket or cracked head.
As the antifreeze leaks into your motor air would be sucked into your cooling systems and end up showing up at your radiator cap as bubbles. A few tale-tale signs of a leaking head gasket or cracked head will be water/antifreeze in your oil, white smoke or condensation (coolant) coming out of your exhaust pipe and your car overheating.

How do I locate a leak that lets antifreeze and oil mix inside the oil pan?


Most likely a head gasket. The coolant is forced into the oil chambers and mixes. This too leaks into the exhaust gases and burns off as you describe. You usually get oil in the coolant reservoir. This can be checked with a test strip available at automotive supply store. It measures the acidity in the coolant.

My ford Explorer is not over heating but I am loosing 1.5 Liters of water everday I have changed the radiator, thermostat and fan and I still am loosing water in the radiator


it may be coming out the exhaust pipe due to bad head gasket. the head gasket may be blown on the exhaust side of it and its going out through the exhaust system.you can try filling it up with antifreeze and checking for sweet smell coming from exhaust at rear of car. if you don't see any thing on ground, it's going somewhere. i know thats probably not what you will like to hear but it could be worse and lealing into the oil. sorry for your trouble and thank you for choosing fixya.com

I have a 1998 mustang. After i drive it I have noticed smoke coming from under the hood on the passenger side What could be the problem


You could have condensation from the A/C lines, if the problem does not happen when the A/C is off, its a good bet. Look at where your exhaust parts are relative to the A/C lines.

Leaks of oil or antifreeze. The valve covers can loosen up over time. You should be able to observe staining on the exhaust manifold directly under the bottom lip of the valve covers. Lightly tighten the valve covers or replace the valve cover gaskets.

Antifreeze. A pressure gauge is made to test the Radiator, Radiator cap, and the overall system. You may be able to rent one or use one free from Autozone, Oreillys, Advance, or local parts stores. A radiator shop would definitely have one. A failing Radiator can seep and evaporate the Antifreeze with none falling on the ground. You could have a loose hose clamp or even a heater core leaking(its on the passenger side).

Check for any loose wires or vacuum hoses which may have dropped onto hot pipes. That's about all the possibilities. I hope my Solution is very helpful to you. There is just no one thing alone that is always the problem. You are going to have to check out all the things on my list to find the right one. Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a 1998 Saturn. The reservoir often leaks water/antifreeze and light comes on to indicate. I have had water pump as well as reservoir replaced. Doesn't leak everday but still leaks. WHat is this?...


you need to find that leak, is the leak visible? if its not from radiator or the reservoir, the only other place I could think you can lose water is the head gasket. It happens to high miles and hard driver. 100k miles would likely be a head gasket. Leaking head gasket will also cause the engine temperature to rise and run super hot. antifreeze will leak through the head gasket down to your oil pan mixing oil and water. Check your oil by pulling the dip stick and see if you have oil mix with water; it will have a slimy looking colors, oil is light color and it should never be black. if it black than change your oil and inspect it afterward when the car has been running for while. when engine really hot cause the heat to effect the starter not to engage or start or engine is too hot to run. repairing head gasket could run anywere from 500-800 bucks.

1998 Neon leaking antifreeze


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.
