95SubaruAWD Posted December 23, 2008 Share Posted December 23, 2008 Problem unsolved scenario: Radiator cracked. Smoke coming out of crack. I patch with Epoxy resin/putty, works until its driven, then coolant seeps/boils/bubbles out. I figure *hey* ill just get a brand new radiator. I do for $130. Takes me all night in 20 degree weather to unhook and re-hook hoses. I fill the radiator just under full. I turn the car on. No cracks, no smoke. 30 seconds later: Smoke coming from under car. After 5 mins I check temp gauge, its low. I look under car, there is smoke coming from the catalytic converter/pipes area under transmission. White smoke. This is sometimes normal for this car, for it had a loose screw one time, and trans fluid was leaking onto pipes, burning/smoking because of it. Is this normal? Has anyone else had this problem? I used 50/50 coolant. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
