White smoke and coolant leaking every time I drive sometimes not right away but now all the time what can it be please help
Persistent cooling problems finally traced to an engine problem (crack?). Apparently building-up too much pressure in the closed system and blowing-out radiator hoses one at a time. Persistent condensation build-up under trunk near coolant resevior. Unrepairable without dropping-in a new engine.
Bought car for college-student daughter. She called in panic, fluid (coolant) leaking from front & rear end, white smoke billowing from tail pipe. Had car towed to shop today...diagnosis/estimate on Monday...pray for her "baby"! (It's a love thing, lol!)
