Q: Smoke from antifreeze leak

asked by on

I have smoke coming out from under the hood of my car. I think I have an antifreeze leak or something.

Hi there. You quite frankly may have a coolant leak. Also, it may be an oil leak that is getting onto your exhaust manifold causing it to burn off. I would recommend having a certified mechanic diagnose the smoke to determine what repairs need to be made.
