You can't operate a vehicle that is leaking from the freeze plugs. it will loose coolant , run hot and eventually seize up.

What is cause of temperature gauge indicating overheating and steam coming from engine and coolant leaking?


First off you are going to need a engine or a full rebuild if the temp gauge redlined.. The cause could be numerous things but if it was steaming from the back of the motor then it's either heater core hose busted or blown freeze plug.

1have a2001 ford taurus water froze up in it a couple of nights ago i took the drain plug out flushed it with cold water then then reattaced the drain plug put water in it and water started coming out...


If you didn't have adequate anti-freeze in the car, it could be damaged as water expands when it freezes. In extreme cases, it can actually split the engine open. To prevent that, they put in "freeze plugs" that are designed to blow out before the engine is damaged. Hopefully that is all that has happened and your freeze plugs can be replaced. However it is possible that the radiator was damaged too.

Heat stops working and engine overheats


When your Pathfinder overheated you now have a blown engine head & gasket. When it overheats you run into costly problems that make your vehicle only worth scrape. You do know that using your a/c or heater puts strain on engine and could have leak at freeze plug or plugs and slowly leaking water from radiator or water backing into overflow that has it boiling with steam coming out.

Hard starting smell antifreeze


Souinds like beginning of blown head gasket. could be due to corrosion on either head or block. "Diesel knock" could be due to excess compression from water in cylinder (will explain steam, antifreeze smell).

Coolant leak behind motor


No, on the freeze plug. A freeze plug leak would immediately start leaking as you were pouring coolant into the radiator. And would be leaking constantly, whether engine was running or not. More likely a head gasket, or if there is a coolant passage into your intake it might be an intake manifold gasket.

Steaming from back of the engine. no heat. windshield fogs in the inside


If you are loosing coolant and you see water under the car after sitting you have a leak. The most likely area is the heater core as you are getting steam inside the car. If you smell anti freeze that is another confirming item. Check all the hoses and connections first before replacing the core. Good luck.

1992 accord hard starts,engine light, steam off hood in rain


The check engine light comes ON when the cars computer(the ECU) notices any kind of electrical problem in car.In some cases the check engine light comes on then turns off.In that case the exact error is not getting confirmed so this happens.But once the problem gets confirmed the engine light will remain permanently ON till the problem gets solved.In this case i suggest you to get your car scanned at autozone service center.Its absolutely free.In case in the car scanning,if any error code is retrieved then you can check which part is faulty as per the error code.In case if no error code is retrieved then you can continue driving,till you get any confirmed indication. ---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
