Coolant in the snow and a wet hose.

Asked by Mar 07, 2014 at 06:22 PM about the 2001 Ford Ranger 4 Dr XLT 4WD Extended Cab Stepside SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After it ran for 20-30 minutes while I blew out the driveway there was coolant in the snow.  I can smell it from time to time.  I looked underneath last night and the hose coming from the little radiator (condenser?) was all wet and frozen and I could see where it had blown back all over the bottom and frozen?  Can I drive it or leave it until I can get somebody to look at it?

I wouldn't drive it for more than 5mins, and only drive it to the shop. Fill up the radiator if it is low before you leave.

Radiator is full. Almost spilling out.

Filled the reservoir and ran it for 20+ minutes. No coolant smell and no leakage. I drove it about 2 miles, got up to highway speed an back home. Still no leakage.
