So long story short, i just picked up my 4th 240 and its got an overheating issue. ka24e
Basicly ill fill the radiator with coolant and drive it around and dosent overheat to much dosent leak coolant or anything, only when i turn the car off will most of the coolant drain on the floor and white smoke will comeout around the air intake manifold. previous owner said it the air intake manifold leaks coolant and causes it to over heat. I know my way around this car preety good but i need some info or help before i start messing with stuff!
please please someone help me!!!!!

You've got a leak on the heater hoses behind the intake manifold. They are a bitch to get to. I would suggest pulling off entire intake manifold and replacing them all.

It's probably spraying onto hot engine parts and then steaming up.
