why would my ford taurus have white smoke coming from under hood and leaking antifreeze?
My taurus is a 2006. It is a V6 engine. We just purchased the car and drove it home about 45 miles. As soon as we pulled into the driveway it began smoking and leaking a fluid. I am considering returning the car.
I've been working with American made cars since 1992.
How do you know if iy is overheating? Wont the hood of the car be hot? And there was loads of what smelled like antifreeze leaking onto the ground.
Okay so the car was not overheating. What else would cause the smoke and the leaking fluid after a 45 mile ride?
Is it expensive to replace the radiator? And, is it possible that when the fluids were topped off, they were filled too high and caused the leaking under the car?
What color would the coolan fluid be? The color that was leaking from my 2006 taurus was very very light.
