I just had an interestig problem with my dakota, I was heading to work, I get off the expressway and notice an anti-freeze odor and see smoke coming from under the hood. I go to the gas station and lift the hood to find anti-freeze all over underneath and the radiator is empty. It's dark so I can not tell exactly what or where this came from. I call my brother-in-law who is a body technician but knows alot abotu cars, he thinks my thermostat may not have opened up and caused a hoseto blow, my dad thinks it may be a hose, or the water pump. Me I will know more in the morning, but until then I am trying to find other thoughts and trying to find repair information as to where my water pump is and how hard it is to replace in case that is the problem. Other than that does any one have any other thoughts that may have caused this to do this, or was it just a bad hose that blew?
have the same problem?
