Having problems with your 2000 Ford Taurus ?

White Smoke I notice white smoke coming from the plastic grills when i come to a stop. I also notice a anti freeze smell to when the heater is on or when the a/c is shut off. After the car has been running for a while the smoke is gone and the smell is not as strong

It may dissipate only because it is cooking off faster after warmup.
\015\012You have a hose or radiator leak; check your coolant level often until you have it serviced.

\015\012I wouldn't use the stuff but there are several 'stopleak' products in auto parts stores.

\015\012Don't let it hang too long; if you run low on coolant, you are risking overheating and possibly a blown head gasket which you may already have anyhow.
\015\012The coolant leak can come from hoses, the radiator and the head gasket failed near a cooling channel.
\015\012Also check your oil and if it looks like Jergens (hand lotion), you already have a blown gasket; that comes from oil and water mixed together and makes a poor lubricant.
