sorry for the spelling its located under the sparke plugs
did you check the oil level ?
yes the oil is not creamy
Is the car running good ? do you see any white smoke coming out of the exhaust ?
yesterday i did but it runs fine know a lot of smoke came out yesterday a the car wanted to stall
the car also has been overheating and i changed thermostat
check under your floor mats,or press on them with your hand, this cars like to blow heater cores....Do you get foggy windshield ?
Is the car running at normal temperature ? It can only leak it or burn it.....usually on this engines the headgasket goes or the heater core....Is this the 2.2 ,4 cyl. engine ?
yes it i 2.2 no the car is a high temp
The car is overheating ? is it going to the red ?
does the radiator fan come on after 3/4 on the temp gage ?
If you fill up the coolant and then start the engine, does it make bubles or trows the coolant out ?
did you ever replace your thermostat ?
with the info. that you gave me i think you should try a GM thermostat and also replace the cap on the coolant reservoir....i think you are leaking from the reservoir down to the frame ...I am switching you to the Q@A this way you can get back to me later or tomorrow,i need to pick up my son .....
Try to flush the heater core...need to disconnect the two hoses that go to the fire wall then use the water hose and run water through the heater core....Put everything together ,run the engine for 10 minutes...turn it off ,wait 10 m ,check the coolant and run it again,make sure you have the heat on all the time.....let me know.....than you..
