If you smell it,it is there somewhere.check hoses,radiator,water pump,heater core,are you over heating?Have you lost any coolant?

10

Well the only time I lost coolant is when I took off the cap right when I turned the car off.. other than that I haven't lost any coolant.. but when it was a Lil chilly and it was raining after driving for awhile I turned car off then I saw a Lil steam come from where you put the coolant in.. and that was the Sam smell i smelt while i drive for awhile

If you cant find any leaks,check you radiator cap could be bad,letting coolant seep out around seal or pressure spring bad. Good luck with it

10

That's one thing I'm trying to find is my radiator i found the jug where u put the coolant in but not the radiator.. i just bought this car a month ago used lol so I'm still getting to know where everything is

Yes I don't see the radiator anywhere

Check hose between jug and radiator for leaks,when you follow that hose should lead to top of radiator,there may be cap there or not, i will have to look at the specs to know for sure.

10

Well it has two hoses... One hose goes to the front of the car where all I see is fans and the other hose leads to near back of engine

I looked at specs ,it is a sealed radiator with no cap.All i can say is look real good for the leak, if you smell it it is there,as long as you are not losing fluid to rapid you should be ok,But usually a smell leak gets bigger at some point in time,keep close look at your temp gauge untill you find it,and colant level.

10

The temp gage is between hot and cold pointing up in the middle. . I even tried to look In the drivers manual can't find radiator

9,535

as long as it run s middle you are good,but if it gets any higher check your coolant.

10

I got this car a month ago not sure when the coolant was changed.. it's a light brownish color when you open the coolant cap.. not sure if the coolant has to he fused and new coolant put in there

It would not hurt to flush it if it is not clean,

10

How much would you think it would be to flush it? .. The color is a light light brown color looks like a rusty watery color in the coolant jug

9,535

The average price i think would be around 40 bucks,coolant is about 20 dollars and labor 20. That,s seems about right.but alot of mechanics want more,but that is a fair price.

True ..ty for the advice I will find Poy at a mechanic
