The other day I started my car, I turned the heater on and went back to check and it was still cold inside. Then I noticed a burnt antifreeze smell coming through the vent's. When I popped the hood I smelled the same thing. Then I noticed what appeared to be antifreeze leaking from the passenger side of the engine where the water pump is located, but I could not tell if that is where it was actually coming from.
There is still antifreeze inside of the housing container. I had the timing chain replaced about a year ago. But like and idiot I did not have them replace the water pump or thermostat.
I checked the oil and it had now mixture of water in it so I do not believe it is a head gasket issue. It seems as though the antifreeze is not getting to the engine like it should. Any advice? Thanks
have the same problem?
