Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2006 chrysler sebring convertible:
just started having this problem
yesterday. My check engine light
came on a while ago and since then
has came on and off. It wasn't until
yesterday when I checked my fluids
and refilled my coolant and window
washer liquid that all this started to
happen. Before I could slightly smell
coolant when driving but now as
soon as my next drive there was a
liquid that was on the engine I can't
quite tell what it is but my window
washer fluid is now basically empty.
The motor oil was at the minimum
mark but coolant was fine. When it
gets hot the heater will not blow hot
air but works and there is smoke
from the engine when hot. Yesterday
for the first time it started to
overheat. Im not sure what it is but it
couldn't have happened at a worse
time. Can anyone diagnose this
issue?

Change your oil. If it's a milky color you may have a coolant leak inside the engine, which is not a good thing. With the liquid on the engine, check your coolant hoses. You could have a pinhole leak or even a crack in one of the lines, which would account for the liquid on the engine, smell and coolant being low. As for the washer fluid, you could have a leak in the tank or the lines which should not affect the engine
