You got problems. Bad gasket, cracked head, cracked watercase, etc. If your mechanical, get going on it before the snow flies, if not, off to the dealer. Remember, the motor is the cheap part to repair.

You might not have noticed it before. Sometimes things just happen all at once, sometimes they work their way into being a problem. It sucks, I know, but ya just got to deal with it.

I didnt notice it my dad called me today and said he started it lastnight and it was blowing anti freeze out of the exhaust. So told me to get on here and put a post out to see if anyone else has had a problem.

Are you sure? Is your anti freeze tank low or empty? Is your dad seeing puddles or smoke?

Make sure you check your inside head orings. My 440 was very hard on these. Make sure you check them out carefully. When I was rebuilding the top end I looked at a inside oring, it looked fine. Then I checked it again before I put it back together and sure enough it was cracked.

head gaskets are a easy fix. and it wasn't condesation in the exhaust he was seeing coming out was he. it was green and sweet tasteing? let us know what you come up with. air bubbles in the coolant bottle usually point to head gaskets
