Car was shifting hard then began to overheat very rapidly stayed hot until red light. Stepped on gas and smoke and antifreeze and tranny fluid everywhere. What could it be??
Buddy said it was a hole in radiator but
there was tranny fluid on ground also.
Havehad problems with coolant system
before this happening also. Ohh and there
was no heat the whole ride..please help
before I buy parts I dont need.
How do I check there is six lines going into radiator..there was more coolant than tranny fluid on the ground and on the motor while it was steaming or smoking..
With both trans and coolant leaking possible the radiator will need to be replaced. Don't drive it like this cause bigger issues will occur. No heat is because it was out of coolant. I suggest to fill cooling system and then do a pressure test on it. This will cause it to leak while engine is cool and you can safety find the issues. Your local auto parts store should have what you need to do the pressure test.
Thank you and I had to have it towed after this had happened and its been sitting since. Im gonna grab the radiator, do you suggest to grab new lines while im at it. Cause I like the car and dont want a temporary fix..
Did you check to make sure it was the radiator that was the problem? If so I would also change the hoses.
