You have a coolant leak
you may need to have the system pressure tested to find the leak
at the firewall good chance it's a head gasket
hope this helps

98 Ford Windstar Overheating Issue - Help!

you might want to stop at Autozone and pickup their borrow tool a pressure tester. it will hook up to the radiator(do this after the car has not run for 8 hours ) Make sure car is full of coolent the engine will be cold so you wont have to worry about getting burnt, pressureize system about 13 pounds look for leeks yo should see coolent comming out where the steam was leaking out if no coolent leeks and you will know its not leaking if the pressure gauge does not drop pressure. I would suspect a stuck thermistat, Before changing the thermistat I. would perform a block leek test. Autozone has a block tester(another free tool) you must purchase block test fluid about $8.00 US run car up to temp make sure coolent resovour fluid is down about 3 inches so u dont get any coolent in tester. put blue fluid in tester put tester in resivour squeeze bulb for up to 2 minutes if color changes to yellow your car will need a head gasket.

Overheating and leaking water from back of engine compartment

You should be able to trace the heater hose from the Firewall back to the engine. That is one possibilty. Sometimes depending on how water circulates in an engine, the intake manifold can distribute water and a leaking gasket will let the water out.

There are tools which can be borrowed from an Autoparts store for a returnable deposit. You would want a Radiator pressure tester which will alow you to test the engine when it is cold and force water out of the leak.

My car is overheating and it smells like antifreeze in the car and the fans not coming on?

sounds like you have a coolant leak inside the engine compartment and its steaming off the engine heat. You need to check heat sensors also as those fans need to run to keep motor cool. Beware , those fans can turn on at any time so keep hands and fingers clear of them when checking or workng near them.

I have serious water leak from my 1995 Toyota 4Runner V6. Doesn't over heat. Just steams real bad from under hood. Seems to be from a small hose at the firewall. Should I be concerned of a larger problem?...

replacing the hose would solve the leak. After you replace the hose you need to refill the system and test it make sure everything is ok. If the engine was steaming it was overheating.

I have a 1997 Chevy Venture 3.4L V6. Since buying the van last year I had the head and intake gaskets replaced due to overheating and mixing of oil and coolant. I have been driving the van for about 5...

Sometimes the head gasket blows from too much back pressure caused by blocked exhaust or cat. convertor. This will happen if the heads were not checked for warpage & cracks. Also if poor quality head gaskets were used &/or improper torquing precedure, this problem will occur. It may be wise to get a complete long block that has been rebuilt & warranted for at least a year. Make sure you have no exhaust restrictions because antifeeze in the exhaust will wreck the cat. convertor. Good luck with your rebuild!

97 ford e150 van inside windshield steams up. is

the heater core is located in the black box that is in the pictures (see below). To get access to it, you will need to remove the blower housing. The blower housing will separate from the main HVAC box, and will give you some space once it is out. Then we need to wrestle the main box loose from the firewall. That means dealing with the A/C pipes, heater hoses, vacuum hoses, mounting stud nuts under the hood and mounting bolts inside. Once the box is moving, the dash needs to "get floppy" so you can pull back the passenger side far enough to give the main HVAC box enough room pull away from firewall, and to "roll" back towards you. At this point the heater pipes will be visible, and the cover that contains the heater can be removed. It's a big job. Your car has A/C. The description in the haynes book is for a car w/o A/C. If you're not comfortable with plastic dash board removal, this job is not for you

1999 Chevy Venture Problems

you have 4 water lines, they are 2 radiator hoses (top and bottom) the bottom one runs from the lower part of the radiator to the water pump, the top radiator hose runs from the upper part of the radiator to the thermostat housing

2 heater hoses, they go from the water pump to the firewall.

if you know which one has a hole then you should take the van to a parts store (if you can safely drive it that far) and show them, they can get the right one for you... and sometimes you can talk someone into putting it on for you.

as for the fluctuating gauges you probably need new sending units for the temp gauge and fuel gauge

The small two inch hose which is attached to the coolant bottle is not attached to anything else, is this how it is supposed to be? Only steam is coming ut of it and the engine is overheating.

There should be a hose coming from the radiator, near the cap, down to the overflow tank, there is also usually a short hose on the cover of that tank that is used to direct steam down and away from anyone who may be standing near the tank when the hood is up. It sounds to me like that is doing it's job. Engine overheating could be a couple of things, low coolant, fill that with engine cold. Also fill the radiator, not just the overflow tank. If that doesn't fix the problem try a thermostat, if that doesn't work try a new water pump. If it's still a problem your cooling system may be plugged. I would bet the thermostat will fix the problem.
