Last night as I was driving home, my car begin to smoke under the hood. Once I arrived to my resident smoke still was coming out more. I notice some green color liquid was running down the driveway slowly from underneath my car. What's going on? Is it because my antifreeze was all used up? Do I have a hole somewhere? Can I place water in the place of antifreeze until I'm able to get my vehicle repair? Please help me with my questions.

Hi Kia,

The cooling system is leaking resulting in the green colored liquid and steam being emitted from the engine compartment.

You can use water as a temporary measure but the leakage must be identified and if possible patched or repaired to enable you to continue driving, failing which you might damage the engine if you have not already damage it yet.
