Usually it is close to the water pump.Two smaller size hose should come out from under the cover of the thermostate .You probably need to remove the top cover to see the thermo valve itself.If the thermostate not working(or not working temporary)then main radiator in the front of the wehicle stays cold.Thermostate can get stuck,it means that it is working sometimes,sometimes not so the hot water cant get to the radiator to cool down .Pressure goes high up ,water runs everywhere.There is one more thing can cause such problem on your car.If the water reaches a certain temp then a ventilator should turn on on the radiator which suppose to cool down the water.If you drive fast enogh then the travel wind can do the same thing .So probably your ventillator stoped working.

Hyundai h100 turbo loses water from radiator but the water bottle stays full

Hello Basil Miller,

What you need to do to resolve the issue is to beg, borrow, rent or buy a COOLING SYSTEM pressure tester...
(way less than an hour of an in-competent "MECHANIC"
(although a competent mechanic could have your
issue identified in minutes)).

I will try to attach a sample picture from AMAZON

I bought a SNAP-ON (BluePoint) years ago and have
saved big money... They are SO effective because you can pressurize the engine while it is COOL , quiet & not running....

Carefully look around the engine and find out where
the leak(s) show... AND REPAIR THEM.

(pay close attention to the water-pump drive seal)
((Always use recommended COOLANT MIX)).

Never OVERTIGHTEN hose fittings...
ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT on plastic parts...!!

Amazon com Stant 12270 30 Pound Cooling System AndPressure Cap Tester...

Hope this helps

2001 3 litre s type. water pump replaced now coolant leaks from overflow once engine is switched off

By removing the water pump obviously alot of water has drained out therefore you need to prime the air out of the complete water system at the radiator. The coolant leaking out is caused by the hot air rising to escape out the coolant bottle the only exit point.With the engine switched off, alocate a bleed screw on the top or on the side of the radiator and open that screw.Then keep pouring water into the coolant bottle until you see air escaping from the bleed screw.Once the air stops releasing and only water then spurts out, close the bleed screw. The system is now 95% primed. Start the engine and let her idle then open the bleed screw again, if only water spurts out for about 5 seconds then the system is completely primed. If there is still air coming out you can rev the engine a bit to circulate the water faster and then the system will bleed quicker(Not forgetting of course to top up the bottle replacing the lost water from bleeding) as soon as there is only water shooting out the bleeder, close the bleeder and top up the bottle to the maximum mark only. If ever you over top beyond the maximum mark just open the bleed screw to let out some water until it drops to the maximum mark and then close.The system is now fully bled. Problem solved.

2008 corsa utility overheating & water is boiling & pushing out through the water bottle

I see two possible causes.
1) Something is blocking air from cooling the radiator. Is there any debris like leaves blocking the radiator?
2) Something is preventing coolant from flowing through the engine. Could be a water pump failure.
Make sure your engine old level is within proper range.

My 2007 Smart lost power and no engine light comes on.

If turbo is developing correct pressure it's not the turbo check the connections for air leaks between turbo and engine (put dish washing detergent and water more detergent than water into spray bottle) spray around joints with engine running it will bubble if leak is present
