Why does my 2000 ford taurus have white smoke coming from the grill some times not all the time and the car is not overheating. what is wrong?


The only thing which can cause white smoke is steam, and given radiator is in front, may be a small hole due to road pebble penetrating radiator core. Keep eye on water level and engine temperature as you don't want to run and overheat engine ever.

Check engine comes in when engine starts to overheat, which it does in slow traffic. Radiator, fans, water pump are OK.


Did you check/replace the thermostat? Another possible cause may be hair line cracks in the head(s).

Leak between engine and firewall


overheat = high chance for blown gaskets.
May be intake or head gasket, or worse, a cracked head or engine block.

Dry it all, fill it, start it, get a friend on the other side and start looking for the source of the leak.

check if there is visible smoke coming out of the exhaust after using your car for like an hour. If there is visible smoke your car's engine is probably leaking oil from the inside. You need to have your engine rebuilt. If the theres no visible smoke, try to check if your car is loosing water from the water reservoir really fast. Also, check if your radiator fan is still okay.

If the coolant is coming out as fast as you put it in you could overheat the engine doing permanant damage. If it only comes out under pressure and holds for the most part fill the radiator, tighten the radiator cap half way where it wont come off but will not allow pressure to build, carry extra water just in case and watch your temp gage. Stop if any noise or excessive smoke occurs. Good luck and be carefull.

1990 Subaru Liberty Overheats


Hi,

I had the same problem with my 1993 Liberty LX. Remove the thermostat (located inside bottom radiator hose engine connection - take the connection off and thermostat is inside). Reassemble (minus thermostat), reconnect bottom hose. Slowly (very, very slowly) refill the radiator and remove the bleed plug ( located beside the top hose connection to the radiator - a black square plug with a phillips head cross in the middle). When the radiator is full and clear water (no air bubbles) is coming out of the bleed point, replace the bleed plug and then the radiator cap.

Run the engine for five minutes (approx) or until normal engine temperature is reached. Allow the engine to cool down and recheck the water level - fill if necessary ensuring that the bleed plug is open and clear water is coming out of that point. Replace Bleed plug and then radiator cap. Run engine for five minutes (approx) and then test dive. If the engine overheats keep filling the radiator until there are no air bubbles coming from out of the bleed point.

This fixed my overheating problem. Good luck and safe motoring.

Its runnining close to hot on temp gauge and after i parked it from driving home fom work i saw some smoke coming from under the hood


If smoke, you may have a leak in a hose. When cool, check for water marks usually coming from the connection to the radiator. Another thing to do but may be dangerous is to load up the radiator with water and start the engine, let it run for about 15min for it to heat up and look for water spray. Also, when parked, is there a puddle of water under the car?

Also, I would check the water level in the radiator (never open when hot), to see if i need to add water. Don't look at the reservoir as a reference. It could be just low.

The key here is you think there may be smoke coming from the hood.

Another thing, if the radiator is full of water, then it could be your thermostat. it is usually located at the end of the top hose which runs from the radiator to the engine. In this picture, you are looking at the top of the engine looking down. This is the location of the Thermostat. If your vehicle is close to over heating, this valve could be getting stuck.

As a test, remove the thermostat and try driving it around to see if it gets close to overheating.
