SOURCE: Smoke

  1. Sometimes the steam from under the hood, because it is over heat.

  1. Check the water hose include the heater hose, it is a smaller hose behind the engine on the top near the back of the hood, find out which hopes is leaking.

  1. If the hose is OK, check the freeze plug on the engine, because if the engine is too old, maybe the plug was rust and leaking, when it’s leaking, the engine is hot, you will see the steam under the hood.

  1. When engine is hot, you have to be very carefully, do not open the water cap, if you want to open, you have to either wait a while or use a heavy towel to cover the radiator cap, then open it.

  1. Maybe the radiator is leaking.
I hope this can help you a little bit. good luck.

SOURCE: smoke is coming out from under my hood...checked antifreeze and oil so it fine

white smoke usualy tells about a leakage in the cooling. check that. dont forgett to refill. get it repaired or DIY. attention: could be really hot.

if it smells like fuel, a fuel line is broken. then dont drive any more since it can catch fire.

if the smoke is not white, go to the repair shop instantly.

SOURCE: i smell strong gas fumes under the hood but dont

Gas leaks are sometimes hard to find with the complexity of components, hoses etc. on today's cars. The other difficulty is the evaporation of fuel can be almost spontaneous due to the heat in the engine bay area. I look for signs with the engine COLD and the ignition on, fuel pump pressurized, then off. It should hold pressure. turn the ignition back on at it should only run the pump amoment, not as long as the first time. If it does run just as long you may have other problems as well. With the pump pressurized and ignition off, look carefully at all fuel line connections especially when rubber fuel lines and clamps are used. Your finger and your nose may be the best method in hard to see areas. Don;t forget to check the return fuel lines back to the tank and any filters or canisters in the system. look for darkened or wet areas on rubber hoses and wet fittings on metal lines.

This is not something to play with. Find it or get help pronto. It may cost you your vehicle and maybe even your life. Gasoline fires are nothing to flirt with.

1995 nissan quest radiator fan went out going up hill and smoking


Smoking from where? Under the hood, the pressure exceeded the rating of the radiator cap and the coolant was blown into the recovery tank. It may have fillled the tank and sprayed coolant on the engine making it smoke under the hood. You may have blown a radiator or heater hose, again if the smoke was coming from under the hood. If it was coming out of the tail pipe, you may possibly have blown a head gasket.

Check all the fuses (under hood and inside drivers door) to make sure none have blown. I checked with a test light. If you don't find any blown fuses try disconnecting the battery (neg) cable for about a minute. Disconnecting the battery worked for my 05' Tahoe.

Mazda MPV minivan drove about a mile andsmoke started rolling out from under hood. I went under car and it looks like a plastic container has 3 holes in it. What could this be? What's that tank?


Coolant Expansion Tank or Windshield Fluid Container

Wouldn't that be something your familiar with,
or you never check things under the hood?
