I am not familiar with this specific vehicle. Open hood while engine is running and see where this steam is coming from. If from around the new water pump I would say bad installation. If it's coming from another area, see if bad hose, replace, or possible head gasket, repair soon, it could be as simple as a hose clamp that needs to be tightened. Only you can see this. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

SOURCE: how can you tell if your water pump is bad

It could be either hose or the pump. Introduce no more antifreeze to this car until you have found your leak as you are just wasting your money.

You are going to have to visually inspect it for the leak. Typically if it is a pump, the pulley and the underside of the pump will be wet.

SOURCE: steam from antifreeze coming from right side of engin

I would check the hoses in that area. It maybe the the water pump bearing shaft seal. There is usually a small drain hole towards the bottom of the pump, that will leak anti-freeze when the seal goes bad. With an inspection mirror, you may be able to see if anti-freeze is leaking from the pump.

Toyota corolla 1993 water pump leaking and steam coming from top of radiator. added chem and weld solution to radiator recently


Since the water pump is leaking there is low action of the water pump to circulate the water into the engine jackets and the radiator.
So you need to remove and overhaul or replace the water pump, replace the gasket, check the radiator for leaks with high pressure test, replace with a good cap and the fault of heating and steaming will be gone. Also check the timing of the engine, do a tune up.

Steam coming from the tailpipe of my car after replacing radiator


are you loosing coolant? if you have some coolant going somewhere but no leaks that you can find pull the dipstick and take a look at your oil. if the oil on the dipstick looks white and creamy, you have a blown head gasket. that is how water is getting into parts of the engine where it doesn't belong and so into exhaust. if that is what is happening you should fix it right away, pretty bad for the engine. hope that helps
