Engine Cooling problem
2001 Chrysler Sebring 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 124000 miles
i've had my car a couple of years and 1 year ago had to have the transmission rebuilt (needless to say, quite an expense) no other big problems but about a month or so ago I noticed that whenever I would idle for a few minutes (i.E at a stoplight, in a fast food drive-thru, etc) a small plume of white smoke would emit from the exhaust. I noticed it but it didnt cause me too much concern at the time. RECENTLY my car has been overheating quite a bit (i usually remedy it by just adding more coolant) and now since its getting cold i've had to use my heater in the mornings. 3 days ago, I noticed that, after I heat my car, park it, there's a puddle of green liquid (coolant) leaking from the car. This has caused me great concern. I'm female and I want to have some idea about whats going on before I visit a mechanic. Please assist! Thanks!
