SOURCE: leaking antifreeze

A quick check you can do to help your troubleshooting is to remove the radiator cap then start the vehicle. (Ensure radiator filled so you can see fluid level). Watch the fluid inside the radiator. Initially after you start the vehicle you will get some small air bubbles but they should go away in less then a minute. If after a couple minutes you have bubbles continually coming up or it starts bubbling out of radiator then you can bet on the Head gasket. If you do not get the bubbles it dosen't rule out either one but if they are there as described then you can look at the head gasket.

SOURCE: replaced intake gaskets.ran fine before. burns antifreeze now

Sounds like the gasket is not sealing correctly, or you have a cracked head. Did you use a factory gasket from the dealer? If not, this is most likely the reason. Haven't had much luck with the aftermarket stuff working correctly on those.

Engine over heats after antifreez is added


How are you adding coolant, why, and how is the engine overheating ?
It could be that you have a blown head gasket and the engine is burning the coolant out the exhaust.

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.

Car overheats, losing antifreeze...the overflow coolant reservoir leaks out onto the ground when I try to put antifreeze in there - so could this cause my car to overheat? I have had the antifreeze drained...


Hello, if your car has a blown head gasket and exhaust is entering the coolant system, it will continue to run hot until it is repaired. Using pure antifreeze will make it worse. It should be at least 1/2 water. If the coolant reservoir didn't leak you could probably drive a few more miles, but not many, before it overheats again. All that is doing is giving you a little more capacity. If you continue to run the engine hot you are going to do more serious damage to it.
I suggest you have the head gasket replaced. That stuff you put in there seldom works, and if it does work, it's only temporary.

I hope this helps.

There is white smoke coming out the tailpipe no smell of antifreeze


If it doesn't smell like sweet then you most likely got a bad tank of gas. Just to be safe keep an eye on your engine temp. and coolant levels.

could be just head gasket and bad exhaust manifold gasket (coolant leaks past head gasket into exhaust port then leaks out of exhaust manifold gasket)
or it possible that head is cracked too
Only way to know for sure is to remove head and inspect it

Excessive overheating!!!,water within oil.? Was told buy friend needed water pump.? Yet now told it may be the head gasket, or manifold gasket? To drive i constantly fill the antifreeze tank with water yet...


Sounds like a head gasket to me. If the oil is milky than the only way coolant can get into the oil is through the head gasket. Since there is also a lot of whit smoke out the exhaust coolant is getting into the combustion chamber and then getting pushed out the exhaust. Your best option might be to find a low mileage used engine. Heads gaskets can get very expensive!

White smoke from exhaust pipe..


White smoke is a sign of coolant being burned in the exhaust.

My 2004 kia's engine pops and stalls before starting. Antifreeze is leaking somewhere that can not be seen. Exhaust smells like antifreeze


blown head gasket. Your coolant is leaking into the combustion chambers and you are burning it. If you can still drive it you might want to try putting in K&W block sealer. Follow the directions carefully and this may prolong the inevetable. Need your heads inspected and new head gasket.

either the water pump is bad and water is leaking out of the weep hole on the bottom of the water pump while the engine is running OR you have a blown head gasket that is letting coolant seep into a cylinder and it is being burned by the engine. Have another car follow you on the highway while doing about 60 MPH or 100KPH and then floor the gas on the car and see if the car following you can see any smoke or mist looking exhaust coming from your car. If they do see mist or smoke coming from your exhaust, you most likely have a blown head gasket that is allowing coolant to be burnt by a cylinder.

If you can't afford to repair the car at this time, if you keep your eye on the coolant level and refill it when it needs coolant, you could continue to drive the car until you save the money for the proper repair.

Much good luck.
