My 94 Ford Explorer limited has been driving strange for a while now. When I accelerate above 25 or 30 mph, it seems as if the transmission is not catching. If I really slam the gas, it would sometimes push through the stall, and drive fine. It started doing it all the time this past week. Now when I push the gas, even flooring it, the truck seems to not accelerate at all. I was pushing it pretty hard just to get it home tonight, when I got home, smoke is coming out, and I open the hood to find antifreeze everywhere on the left side(if looking from the front). THe leak is not putting the coolant on the ground, but sprayed it upward all over the place under the hood. What in the world could this be? Any help would be appreciated.
I'm taking it in tomorrow, but would love to know what I'm getting in to.
