What would cause my 2002 Windstar to blow anti-freeze out the back of the motor?


Asked by May 20, 2014 at 09:57 PM about the 2002 Ford Windstar SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

As I pulled in my driveway the was a large puff of smoke from under my hood. There was barely any fluid in my driveway and there is still coolant in the reservoir. There is anti-freeze blown on the firewall at the rear of the motor. The van was not overheating either. I was thinking that it may be a freeze plug but it's very warm out and I run 50/50 all the time. Help?!?!?!

My guess is a crack or small hole one of the heater hoses. Coolant flows through smaller hoses to the firewall on the passenger side to the heater core behind the dash. Have those changed out and a perform a coolant flush.
