Sounds like blown head gasket. Check your oil, is it creamy color? This means oil and antifreez are mixing, not good. Did you overheat car? This could have don it.

Agree with head gasket or head problem, sometimes they just blow.

Thanks u guys will I need the head gasket or the head gasket set, and my car was over heating also so that could have caused it??? My antifreeze leaks out my overflow jug too, what could that be, i have to keep putting antifreeze in there every 2 or 3 days...

U can blow a head gasket if car overheats. A car can overheat (and thus at times blow out antifreeze thru overflow) because of fan not working, thermostat, plugged radiator, and other reasons. And yes u'll need a new headgasket. It won't be cheap, get a mechanic u can trustand knows wat he's doing. But still make sure that's what it really is! We're given u our best guess, with outlook at it & testing it,

A head gasket set will include everything you need plus a set of valve stems seals, and when you get the head off you should have it pressure tested and if no cracks are found then decide if you want to do a valve job while it is off, then have it shaved to make sure it is flat.
