coolant tank leaking for sure/anything that might have caused this
/coolant tank is leaking on daughters Neon.The car has used oil for years,appx 1 qt very 300-450 miles.It does not leak any oil,but seems to burn oil.I set trip gauge and check every 300-500 miles.checked oil level last night,was again.Could something with engine have caused this to get so hot that cause tank to leak ? Like I said,overflow tank was empty,added water to this only,mount rt frt against fire wall,yellow cap said coolant,appeared to be leaking at bottom of tank as fast a I could put water in. or is it just tank got cracked and leaked.Do not have alot of money to put into,just put new tires on appx 3 weks ago.
The leaking of the tank has nothing to do with your oil usage, that is normal for a 15 year old car. Also the coolant tank is plastic and gets old and brittle from the heat of the engine bay. The lower hose can also be cracked or popped off. No need to worry though, you can replace it yourself for $25.
replace the hose or tank for 25 dollars ? when looking at it the tank is against the firewall,not sure how to get that out/and idea/I am not the best mechanic
