You have either blown the head gasket or have a burst hose. Check the oil dip stick to see the coulor of the oil< if it is a Grey creamy coulor you are going to have to get the gasket attended to.
If not, give us a little more info to work with.

Got a 2001 bmw 316 e46 just put a new expanshon tank on an coolant and its over heating the fan doesn't come on and it boils the coolant and steam comes from under bonnet ?? Any idea where to start (


If your losing coolant water pump may be leaking, not enough coolant will make it overheat. If not that, thermostat may be bad stuck open or shut. Hope this helps

Coolant not getting to the radiator & top hose has a leak so taped it up but now blows out of the coolant tap sparaying and steaming and coolant level dropping under half


Thanks but coolant/radiator fans are not coming on at all wonder if this is why coolant sensor letting out all the coolant & water when the enginee gets pressurised. Not sure why they are not coming on and also not when the car came back from a 3 hour trip last night. We changed the water aux pump which seemed to help a bit but water still ls leaking but not as badlyy

Radiator overflow container always empty


better change out your Plenium (Intake) before it ruins your engine ! Part is about $125.00 and comes with gaskets and a new Intake and new EGR Tube you replace also, what it is doing is leaking internally and burning it, it will eventually start to miss and quit on you Hydrolocking the engine. water does not compress in cylinders. If you are lucky you won't have to do lower intake gaskets or head gaskets......But get it fixed before too LATE !

I have a 1991 buick park ave my car doesnt over heat but mu coolant lights comes and i guess on the left side of the engine it has a container like for wenshield water but its not do i poor coolant in that...


If the coolant light comes on & your
coolant bottle is empty,your loosing
coolant somewhere

Most likely an intake gasket or head gasket

Your statement --- it doesn't over heat
Then why is the coolant light on ??

Fill the container and have it checked
at a repair shop

My coolant reservor tanks keeps blowing up. This is my 2nd one to put on today. What is wrong?


Are you running coolant or water? The tank should not blow up, I didn't think it was a sealed unit, but, either you are creating too much pressure, too hot, or the cap is not holding the pressure. The thermostat ,even if it was open, would not build up pressure. But I would get the coolant out of there and refresh it with 50/50, or add straight coolant to the top. Check the cap, keep an eye on the temp gauge, make sure t doesn't over heat, check for steam coming out the exhaust. Water in the oil, stuff like that, anything out of place. Hope this helps.

My 2001 Ford Windstar van seems to be using alot of coolant daily


Possible coolant leak on hot engine parts causing it to evaporate as it leaks. That would definitely invade the cabin air. You would need to carefully check under the hood with the engine warmed up and running.

Also could be a headgasket failure between coolant channels and a combustion chamber. This latter problem sometimes shows itself as vapor at the tailpipe after there should be no more visible. You may also detect the odor of coolant there too.

What causes 1991 toyota camry to over heat? we put a new radiator in it last year cause the radiator got cracked. but it didnt start overheating til this year. so we changed the thermostat thinking it...


Change the radiator cap, it may be the wrong pressure rating which will cause the coolant to boil at a much lower temperature than designed.

1996 Acura 3.2TL Overheating Problem...


From your description of symtoms it sounds like you have a bad water pump. If the coolant is not circulating properly you will have a heating problem. Sometimes even a new thermostat can stick and cause the engine to overheat. I have seen them fail in as little as a week after they were installed.

My 1990 subaru legacy was running fine-I went to the store less than a mile away and when I got home something was leaking from underneath the car and there was steam coming from under the hood..i don't...


Just because it was not hot to the touch, does not mean it is not a coolant loss problem----if the coolant is so low, there may not be enough to make the radiator hot (though usually the steam in the system will).
...a stuck thermostat can also let the engine overheat while the radiator remains cool (the fluid only circulates within the engine and is stopped from getting to the radiator.
...likewise a hose could have burst below and let the coolant out, over heating the engine, and the steam going out the ruptured/popped off hose; would look underneath..
...when cool, check the level in the radiator (likely empty),
...and less than a mile away, may not have ever heated the radiator, though usually only a mile to heat up the coolant
...of course there is always sabotage
...and water pump failure, (so no water circulated) causing overheating and no radiator heat, and possibly enough pressure to blow off a hose, but usually the radiator cap relief spring would allow pressure to escape (and that steam would heat up the radiator on the way---but if only steam in the radiator, it would cool off quickly after venting, because no more water in the radiator to hold the heat. all depending on climate,temp and further details , symptoms..
hope helps..
