White Smoke/Fix Coolant Hose? DIY? Yes/No?
I have white smoke coming from under my hood, after idling in 90 degree
temperatures in SF, and then driving about 50 ft. Notice what looks like coolant
leaking (green fluid). Can I repair my own hose? When refill coolant, it's empty
in a day, so most likely leak. Radiator: Is it radiator? Do I put distilled H20 into
radiator, and if I do, how much?
You have to determine where exactly it is leaking from. If it's a hose, there is no repair, you replace. Might be the water pump seal or bearing, or the radiator like you said or the reservoir. The key is pinpointing your leak. After driving the car, pull over somewhere and open the hood carefully and see where it is leaking from.
