Steam from front end of car

My 1991 Toyota Celica radiator does not leak, no overheating indicator. But have to fill radiator every day. But after driving a short while steam comes from around the left headlight. But still drives fine. Car won't stall or anything as long as there is water filled up radiator. Don't pu antifreeze for fear of wasting it. Help

FIRST, THE STEAM IS A INDICATION THAT YOU DO HAVE A LEAK. CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT THE OVERFLOW TANK ISN'T THE CULPRIT. SECOND, IF YOU ARE IN AN AREA WITH COLD WEATHER YOU SHOULD DEFINATLY HAVE ANTIFREEZE IN THE ENGINE SO THAT THE WATER DOESN'T FREEZE. IT COULD ALSO BE A FAULTY HOSE. TRY TO LET THE ENGINE WARM UP AND LEAVE IT RUNNING WHILE YOU CHASE DOWN THE LEAK. START WHERE THE STEAM IS COMING FROM.

Tip

Vehicle overheating tips


If your vehicle engine coolant temperature gauge indicates overheating, if you experience a loss of power,or if you hear a loud knocking or pinging noise, the engine has probably overheated. You should follow this procedure............

Pull safe off the road, stop the vehicle and turn on our emergency flasher. Put the transmission in "P" (automatic) or neutral (manual) and apply the parking brake. Turn off the air conditioning if it is being used.

If coolant or steam is boiling out of the radiator or reservoir, stop the engine. Wait until the steam subsides before opening the hood. If there is no coolant boiling over the steam, leave the engine running. CAUTION: To avoid personal injury, keep the hood closed until there is not steam. Escaping steam or coolant is a sign of very hing pressure.

Visually check to see if the engine drive belt (fan belt) is broken or loose. Lock for obvious coolant leaks from the radiator, hoses, and under the vehicle. However, note that water draining from the air conditioning is normal if it has been used. CAUTION: When the engine is running, keep hands and clothing away from the moving fan engine drive belt.

If the engine drive belt is broken or the coolant is leaking, stop the engine immediately and call your mechanic of assistance.

If the engine drive belt is okay and there are no obvious leaks, you may help the engine cool down more quickly by running it at about 1500 rpm for a few minutes with the accelerator pedal lightly depressed.

Check the coolant reservoir. If it is dry, add coolant to the reservoir while the engine is running. Fill it about half full. CAUTION:Do not attempt to remove the radiator cap when the radiator are hot. Serious injury could result from scalding hot fluid and steam blown out under pressure.

After the engine coolant temperature has cooled to normal, again check the coolant level in the reservoir. If necessary, bring it up to half full again. Serious coolant loos indicates a leak in the system. You should have it checked as soon as possible at your mechanic's workshop.

Good luck.

When I pour coolant into my 1991 Mazda Proteges radiator, it starts to fill then I see it leaking out of the front of motor. What could be the issue?


The leak you have my friend is either the Water Pump, any burst water hose (s) or any core plug (s). You need a qualified mechanic assistance.

My celica shows to be running at operating temperature, but the water in the radiator is boiling and the fans arn't coming on.


If the engine is not overheating but the coolant appears to be boiling you may have a blown head-gasket. Remove the spark-plugs, pressurize the cooling system and check for coolant in the cylinders.

I was driving the car i parked and went inside of the daycare when i come out all the coolant was on the ground and running out what could have been the problem


You may have a hose that went bad or the car overheated, you will need to fill the radiator and see if you locate any leaks, look around the radiator and the hoses, this may just be a bad hose, but if it overheated then the coolant would of overflowed from the coolant resivoir, so if you see that the coolant came out the res then it may have overheated, but if its from another location then you will need to fill and look around for a leak, you may have to start the car and let it run a while to build up a little pressure if nothing runs out by just fill it, good day, let me know if you need more help, good day.

2000 toyota celica gts,no heat,overhe4ating,changed thermostat,same problem.not loosing any fluid n no water n oil


Hi, the indication is a possible blown head gasket. Such a leak can create an air bubble that hangs at the heater hose. To verify, park on an incline, open the radiator cap, run the engine until the thermostat is open, and fill the radiator to the neck. Wait until the level stops dropping and make sure bubbles don't continue to come up. If they do, you may have a blown head gasket that will keep forming these bubbles until you change the gasket. When the haed gasket causes overheating, it is usually leaking quite a bit of gasses into the coolant system. If this is not the problem, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6235876-no_heat_fan_blowing_cold_air for additional troubleshooting steps. These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Toyota wont start over heated replace the thermostat and radiator cap could it be the water pump is bad how do I tell


if it wont start immediatly after it overheated then you may have blown the head gasket, or melted a coolant temp sensor or other sensor or wire. look closly for the melted stuff. remove radiator cap and fill with water to the top of the rim. have someone crank it and if a air bubbles come out while cranking then a headgasket is most likely blown. some little bubbles at first dont mean nothing. its a steam of bubbles the whole time its being cranked that indicates head gasket

98 Celica overheating problem

Look along the radiator hose where it enters the engine. This controls the water temperature.


toyotacelicathermalfanswitch.jpgToyota Celica Thermal Fan Switch The Toyota Celica thermal radiator fan switch is usually located in the radiator or the engine block and has 2 or 3 wires coming from the unit. The 3 wire switch has a dual sensor for dual speed radiator fans. The Toyota Celica thermo fan switches come in the factory temperature settings and also come in cooler thermostatic settings so the fan will come on at a lower coolant temp.

The Toyota Celica cooling system is made of aluminum components and requires a Phosphate free coolant. DO NOT PUT an over the counter antifreeze in your Toyota Celica, as it will ruin the radiator and water pump.

2000 Toyota Celica coolant reservior empty


I hate to tell you this but its possible...

You have a leak. Look around on the driveway and try to determine if you have an external leak as opposed to an internal leak. If you see no coolant on the ground, suspect a blown head gasket. Do not continue to drive this car in this condition. If it does indeed have a blown head gasket, serious engine damage will occur.

Check your exhaust for white smoke. Chances are good you have a blown head gasket and coolant is leaking into the engines combustion chambers and is essentially burning off. Also check your oil, if it looks like caf mocha, this will confirm coolant is leaking into the oil via the blown head gasket
