Engine Cooling problem
1996 Chevy Truck V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 70,000 miles
Hi, I smelled a bit of antifreeze nearing the end of my 6 mile drive home from work. 1/2 mile later I was at house & stopped truck. Steam rolled out from under the hood. I lifted the hood and did not see water, only steam. Waiting until it cooled, I opened radiator, added water only, filling up, thinking perhaps it had run low (it had leaked about 10 months earlier but a sealant had seemed to stop that leak. Drove the 6 miles back to work in the early am and started to smell the antifreeze as I was nearing my destination. As I backed into parking space, noticed water on blacktop in front of me. Shutting off engine, steam once again spewed out. Raisinng hood, water seemed to have gone over entire engine. Left it set to cool a couple of hours and then added water again in order to start and see if I could tell where it was coming from. Looking beneath the truck, the water seemed to be running through the system and onto the pavement without ever starting the truck. What are the possibile problems. Blown head gasket? Cracked block? Thanks for any comments.
have the same problem?
