I have a 2005 Forester and my radiator us sputtering out coolant every time I drive my car. The whole area below the radiator cap is scorching hot and smokes because of the sputtering.
I've checked levels and radiator is
full. Overflow drains. Couldn't add
stop leak to radiator since its full, but
tried putting in the overflow but I
didn't help. Don't have a lot of
money to spend on diagnostics and
repairs, so any insight is MUCH
When the car is cool, drain a small amount of water out and put in the stop leak. I suspect that you may have a hole in the radiator or that the radiator tank is separating from the core in which case the stop leak won't really help - you would need a new radiator in that case. The other possibility is that you have bad head gasket and engine compression is getting into the cooling system.
Thank you very much.
