Car overheating not holding water can find no leak from rad'

posibilities are head gasket. Coolant can get into one of the cylinders and will be evaporated and sent out the exaust. If tyhe leak is bad enough it can cause a miss fire on that cyld . If you take the plugs out the faulty cyld will have a white coulour to the plug electrod. Also check heater core . Could be leaking and evaporating the fluid into the passanger area. Usually when this happens you can smell coolant and sometimes the windshield will steam up with the defrosters on.

Dropping water

Are you loosing water from the inside of the radiator?...then it is a blown head gasket, or a cracked head/block. Is there steam coming out of the exhaust? Is the water dripping from the exhaust pipe and from the small factory hole in the muffler....then it is normal. Most likely, as every car with air conditioning, the evaporator core collects frost even in the summer and the A/C cycles to heat it, and melt it off. It is meant to drip through a small pipe, under the car, onto the ground. It is perfectly clear and clean water. It is normal functioning of the air conditioning. In the winter when the defrost is selected to clear the windshield, the automatic air conditioning produces cold dry air, which is then heated to clear the moisture. Frost collects on the evaporator core. The system cycles to heat it off from time to time and it will drip clear water in the winter when you didn't even know that the air conditioning was on. After all who needs air conditioning in the winter when you did not select it. The automatic system turned it on to dry the re-heated air to clear the moisture from inside the car.

Steam from under hood at idle.

My '97 CR-V would get hot enough at idle to evaporate rainwater on the hood, but I've never had steam come out from under the hood that wasn't one of these few solutions:

1. Coolant system leak in which the coolant is somehow being leaked or displaced onto a very hot engine component such as the exhaust manifold.

2. EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system failure in which fumes (and thus 'steam' or 'steam-like' discharge) are being introduced under the hood.

3. Exhaust leak near the engine.

4. Some (all?) vehicles cycle the A/C compressor whilst the selctor is in the DEFROST position. Is it possible that some condesate from the evaporator is spilling onto hot underhood engine parts?

5. Failure of supply hose to windwhield washer jets, usually caused by alcohol drying out the hose. Then, the washer fluid leaks on the hot engine, causing steam.

Check closely under there, I bet you find the problem.

whenever air is compressed, as inside your cylinders, water is squeezed out of the air and does not have time to evaporate back into the air until either it gets past the exhaust completely (you see tailpipes steaming on cold mornings) or if the exhaust system has reached sufficient temperature and actually allows the water to "steam" out of the system at an earlier location in the system, then yopu don't see steam.. Many exhaust systems are ruined quickly when drivers take short trips only and not long enough to reach high exhaust temperature. You can always tell, by looking at tailpipes on cold mornings, which drivers have just started out and which have been traveling a long distance because of the steam issue.
