My car is a 2003 Buick Century and it has been leaking for the past few months (puddles of coolant under the car).
Now the car begins to have white smoke coming from the engine and it has a sweet smell so I'm sure it is coolant.
A few days ago I topped off my coolant and filled a little into the reservoir tank.
The very next day I saw the white smoke and my reservoir tank was empty. I removed the upper radiator hose yesterday to see coolant sitting in the radiator, this means it is clogged right?
I checked both hoses and I see no leaks/holes/ anyware, I still may take it somewhere for a pressure test.
I ordered a new radiator and I'm going to install it once it arrives. My radiator cap is fine as well and I'm sure my thermostat and water pump are ok but I could of course be wrong.
Also ,the car does not overheat as the white smoke comes out, it hasn't overheated at all in fact. The gauge stay in the middle and gets lower as I drive.
I've been driving it sadly because I have to get to work but yesterday and today not as much. White smoke was coming from the engine as before. The smoke is coming from the upper radiator hose and that is where it seems to be clogged at.
Any idea on the the problem?
