Because there's a hole somewhere under the hood that's letting it out, and it's usually in a heater hose. If you can't find it any other way, there's a blacklight detection dye you can put in the antifreeze. You put it in the radiator, then shine a blacklight (the ones they have at hardware stores are fine for this) on your engine. The leaking antifreeze will glow under blacklight.
Well that one is touchy. Many people say that it will destroy your car but from experience and observation I can tell you that depending on the car it can run without it but it's bad for your engine and eventually it will destroy your engine. If you run without antifreeze your car will over heat. Antifreeze is an engine coolant aka it works with your car to make sure that you engine doesn't overheat. It's not wise to go without it but not impossible. My suggestion for you is to make sure you get antifreeze in your car. If you wish to gamble the maintenance of your vehicle more power to you but expect it not to last a very long time. If a car is properly taken care of it can easily last most of your life. As for the car garage if they take it out they need to put it back in. Their job is to keep your car in good shape maintenance wise. I'd go back and raise all hell. you out. ~Angelic Beauty~ ////////basically you must not run your engine without coolant it will simply overheat very quickly and seize up pdq
You may do so, however you car will not run at it' s optimum temperature. Because antifreeze is "thicker" (viscosity wise) than water it retains heat longer. Some people run only water and this cools the car fine however......water doesn't contain the lubricating and anti corossion properties that antifreeze does (let's not forget that antifreeze when mixed 50/50 with water keeps you engune from freezing in cold weather)..... If you run ONLY water (i.e. Have no issues with freezing) add a pruduct such as "waterwetter" or "black ice" for lubricity purposes.
well the way people make a car is they get the frame of the car then it goes down the assembly line and other people put different parts on it.
antifreeze antifreeze a fifty fifty micture of water and antifrez is best
So that the water used as coolant in most car radiators does not freeze overnight. If it does then, because ice expands as it freezes and melts, it can crack the engine block. The antifreeze lowers the freezing point of the coolant and reduces the risk. The more antifreeze, the less risk of freezing. But too much and it will boil when the car is running. Additives in antifreeze also reduces corrosion and raises the boiling point.

the antifreeze runs through all your water lines in your car . . . . you put it in your water tank or radiator
You mix it with water.
some people have said you should and others have said you dont have to. I myself have never put antifreeze in the during installation in all the years i have worked on cars
In the coolant reservoir when the engine is cool.
So that the coolant can stay in liquid form and flow through the cooling system.
If that space has heat loss (and it most definitely has) then sure - it is possible to put radiators there.
Not if you want to keep driving the car!
