My 03 accent keeps overheating and I cant figure it out.. it has coolant, it has water in the radiator... but theres white smoke, i can go about 7 miles before it over heats? This morning I noticed oil on the outside of the motor...any ideas? Also the fan works, my coolant was empty when I first noticed it overheating, I get my oil changed almost like clockwork...

I filled the coolant... and there is no leaks in for antifreeze...but I saw a oil leak on the outside of the motor?
Hi there!White smoke usually means there is coolant burning in the combustion chamber. Typically a head gasket leak will cause this. Also, leaking head gasket will make it over heat very quickly.The hot exhaust can get into the coolant and make it super heated so the cooling fans can't cool it down.The white smoke is a pretty good indicator it's a head gasket.Hope this helps!Thanks
