Car is running hot. I put antifreeze in it but it left quickly. Have to keep putting antifreeze everytime I get in the car to go. It doesn't shut off when running hot.
My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
The first thing to have done is a pressure test to see where the coolant is leaking out to. If there is no external leak, then there may be a blown head gasket. I would suggest having a mechanic test the system and let you know what needs repair. It sounds like you have driven the engine hot and may have done extensive heat-related damage.
