Have you tried to smell your exhaust? (two hours in an enclosed garage should do it...J/K
) If you are burning coolant your exhaust will often smell sweet.
Are you going for the trouble trifecta today?
Lash I wish i could have posted pictures of this car when I got it, I was just so wuick to start doing things to it that I forgot. It is in terrible shpae, the inside has a cracked dash board, I armoraled it anyway, the interior was filthy, literally dirt, garbage cloths, ext. I cleaned all that first and used my slteam cleaner on the seats, floor, door panels and head liner. So now from behind the steering wheel the car looks decent. On the out side the mirror is missing, fender is cracked off, front facia is busted, fogs lights are gone, ground effect is missing, rust, and so on. The motor as you can assume in in the same shape as the rest of the car. In need of some love. I did plugs and all that a week ago and all my plugs were golden except 2, so i relplced the coil on those, that was it, and last night I chaged the o2 sensor, so I wanted to know what I was looking for with a coolant leak (IE burning) my o2 sensor was whitish golden, so whatever that means. But my coolant over flow has no coolant in it and I am trying to figire out if coolant isn't leaking on the ground, is it burning it? Was it never EVER changed and just evaportated, things like that. My car is a mess, but it was 250 bucks and my brother needed the money so I helped him out. Now I really like the bonnie and i want to make her cherry again but I need all the help I can get........
