Having problems with your 2002 Ford SVT Focus ?

Low coolant and oil smells like gas. No white/blue

\015 Low coolant and oil smells like gas. No evidence of white/blue exhaust; engine runs smooth, except for this morning when I started it. Ran a tad rough for about 5 seconds. Great power. Cannot find a discrete coolant leak. Have had tiny oil leaks recently (valve cover gasket?). Smelled faint antifreeze odor today when I stopped at the mail box to get my mail. I was idling for a while because the ice cream truck came by and I got some goodies. Rolled up the driveway, opened hood and found coolant 1 liter low. Have been using low toxicity Mopar coolant 60%, H2O 40%. V-TEC engine, manual 5-speed, Focus ZX5.Thanks. \015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 20-09-2021

Let your car idle go back to the tail pipe if it seems to be steaming alot , and or smells like antifreeze then you have a head gasket problem or a gasket leak alowing in directly into your engine
