Engine Performance problem
1995 Chevy Lumina 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 135000 miles
My car started smoking from under the hood. It was leaking antifreeze from side of engine. It was dark out so am not sure the exact location of leak. Came home and parked car. The next day I started the car and lifted the hood. I noticed a small stream of water running down left side of engine. It stopped when I turned car off. Weather turned cold so let car sit 4 days. Went out today and checked oil. Oil was way up on dip stick when I first took it out. Wiped it and put it back in. The oil was barely showing on dip stick when I took it out. The oil was also very dirty. I had just returned home from 400 mile trip 2 days before car started smoking. My oil was clean before I left there. My low coolant light came on while out of town. My heater wasn't heating good either. I know nothing about cars! I have Multiple Sclerosis so I really need my car. I would more than greatly appreciate any information anyone could give me!
Thank you, Kathy
