01 pontiac montana van. I was driving it and it showed that it was heating up and lost power. I pulled over and it didnt seem like it was hot at all, but now when you start it and let it run you smell antifreeze from the exhaust. I have driven it since that day but I would like to know what is wrong so I can get it fixed

Do you
have the same problem?

Make sure the coolant level is full. If you smell coolant from the exhaust, you may have a bad head gasket. Make sure there is no coolant mixing with the motor oil. You may have to pressure test the cooling system to see if it maintains pressure.
