I have a p t crusier 2004, touring 2.4 with 45,000 miles.I had a plume of? Smoke or coolant come out from the front of my car, the engine died but started up again. It was like a oily film cloud. No check engine, oil, or any lights came on. It seems to work fine. What could it possibly be?
There are a few things it could have been. Had the anti freeze resevoir been filled lately? With the car running is there any leaks that you can see around the engine. Did the temperature guage go way up then come back down, when it happened?
