Question about 1995 Lexus ES 300
Car isn't over heating, notice smoke coming from under timing belt area. Coolant is pooling on top of the radiator and along the under carriage of the front end( base of motor) especially by the timing belt. Can't find leak. Help!
If you have a high pressure airline, then run the car and blow the pooling liquid away from the top of the radiator.
It is often the case that the radiator is leaking from the point where the black top of the radiator is crimped onto the centre matrix.

SOURCE: overheating after 10 minutes
Hi I'm litoshop first thing you have to check is if the radiator fans are turning on open the hood and turn the engine on then look at the fans if there turning on you have to wait a few minutes because they don't turn on right away the engine has to get to at lease 180 degrees, if they don't turn on then your problem is the fans if they do turn on then do another test with the engine cold fill up the radiator to the top then turn on engine at the same time look if the water in the radiator jumps out if you see that reaction then you have burned head gaskets good luck if this information has been useful please let use know thank you

Valve stem seals can cause this problem, but normally only when first started. Oil in the rocker cover seaps through the oil seals into the cylinders and is burnt up on start up.
Try a "STOP A LEAK" additive and it may reduce the oil consumption and smoke.
I found some on e-bay and it worked on my tired old escort. It even stopped the rattling tappets.

could be the head gasket gone, if you take it to a garage they can do a test on it which will take about 10 minutes, if you are leaking water but not on the floor there is a good chance its going into the exhaust which will cause steam(white smoke) out the exhaust
