Engine Cooling problem
1997 Chevy Blazer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 86780 miles
My car was running a bit hot this morning on my drive to work but wasn't overheating. When I got to work I noticed white smoke coming from my engine and it smelled hot. My coolant level looks fine although the coolant itself looks like it needs to be replaced. What could be causing the smoke and the smell and increase in temparature? How do I go about replacing my coolant and flushing my radiator? I was told by my mechanic that the previous owner had put stop leak in the radiator and if I were to flush it it would remove the stop leak. If I do this how/when do I replace the stop leak? I would prefer to do the work myself if I can.
have the same problem?
