Okay, my car has been run ning perfectly fine. few days ago, friend of mine noted that my fluid levels were low for coolant and added some coolant to the tank. it was the right kind but i dont think it was 50/50 mix. my car has not been running hot or anything before this date. now, the temperature guage is going up to almost hot and goes back down and i can smell coolant. someone else told me that it is because of the fact that there was no water put in at that time. any suggestions becuase i dont want it to run hot and create a problem that i didnt have! thanks
Is it physically boiling over? Check the coolant level, thermostat and coolant temperature sensor-start here
No its not physically boiling over; its not even dripping or puddling... I guess my issue is that it was perfectly fine until he added coolant. im a little skeptical that something is now wrong with it given that it was fine until he added coolant.
Have the cooling system bleed and see what happens
