Coolant everywhere

Was driving my car going on a freeway all of a sudden I look back and all I see is smoke. Come to find out it was radiator fluid bc it was green. What could have happened here?

Hose possibly but quite likely a frost plug blew or your block heater.

Try not to dog the new car, or you'll just end up in the same boat.

Agreed. And keep the receipts so when you sell it you have the paperwork on what was done.

Or answer the man's question.. have you check your hoses and the radiator have you chased down the point of where u was losing the fluid hopefully its just a hose.. freeze plugs are a ***** to replace on your own especially with no mechanical experience.. and depending in which shop u take your car to if u go that route ... U could get a used engine with lower miles to just drop in it ..

Agreed. I have a 95 with over 210,000 on it and she'll run. Given the it's a v6. But as long as it's taken care of it'll last.

I'm really getting aggravated with mine. And worrying that it will start having problems

---------- Post added at 09:01 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:34 PM ----------

I guess this means save up for a v8

---------- Post added at 09:32 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:01 PM ----------

I'll just take really good care of it. Make it last.
