Question about 1999 Chevrolet Venture
I have a 1999 Chevy Venture. The van has steam coming from the hood, there's a small leak in the water line (don't know what it's called) and causing the van to steam up from under the hood. Also, there's a problem with the gas/temp gauges, they fluctuate so I can't tell if there's gas in it or if the engine is overheating (which I know it's not). What could be causing these things to happen? We got the car two days ago and there's no warranty. Thanks to anyone who can help.
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

Engine is overheating due to loss of fluid probably from a radiator leak. allow engine to cool fill with coolent and go to nearest mechanic to fix radiator leak. ps... do not drive long when radiator is smoking will cause major damage...
