Question about Mitsubishi Computers & Internet
My boyfriend has been telling me for a while when my car is running and when you walk by it you can smell antifreeze. i got my oil changed a while ago and it was fine but then i got my oil changed this weekend 4000 later and the antifreeze overflow tank was empty and it is not leaking out anywhere so it would have to be burning it up somewhere or going somewhere in my engine. what do you think it might be?
Hi Kristie,if your boyfriend can walk by your car and spell antifreeze,then you have a leak.Usually,it will be your water pump,you can put newspaper or whatever you can use under your car after you have driving it and wait awhile then check paper and see where it is wet to determine what is leaking,could also be a loose radiator hose which the clamp may just need tightening up,but first add some antifreeze to your over flow container,remove radiator cap after it cools down to see how much is in radiator,add if needed.Look around radiator area,it may be leaking.You can also jack it up to look.

Hows your gas milage or do you have any check engine lights come on?Usually if theres no leakage signs its an indication of the evap system leaking.That is recycling of the gas fumes.Its a vacuum system that is now manditory on cars.Thats usually rhe answer when theres no leaking happening.After driving awile open your gas cap,see if you get a vacuum sound when you open it.

Look for Castrol TWS 10W60 Motor Oil. This car should not burn so much oil, you need to use a different kind. It is recommended by BMW as well. I also heard the VANOS isnt an issue anymore, can be fixed with a different MAFF. Good luck!

how often does the warning comes on doing the week or in two weeks? if it was a one time thing or this takes place every 3-5 months i wouldn't worry about it. i will make sure that the radiator cap is on tight. you said that all hose seem to be in good condition i would check the radiator where the cooling fan covers the fins and the water pump because it has a warn hole at the base that will seep out antifreeze when the inside seals are going bad these will cause the smell also.
