I have vw passat v6 2002 it started smelling hot when I drive for more than 5-10 min. Even seen steam or smoke only small amount once. There is some oil or something leaking too. But no fluid change


when it smells hot and there is vapor to be seen , it is boiling and over heating
take it to an accredited VW specialist shop and have it repaired as the next cost is another motor

Audi a6 quattro 2001 coolant disappears, engine overheats and white smoke comes out


Unfortunate you're losing coolant into the cylinders, where it's being burned off and exiting out the exhaust. When you initially added that cold coolant into the hot radiator, and hot engine (sit down) you likely cracked the engine block. Best case you just need to replace the head gasket.

Having over heating problems with my 2000 taurus it does it most with def. or air cond. on full blast did find small leak at water pump where it bolts to block. replaced both cooling fansand,the thermostat...


No!!!!...Yes!!!
No, the sending unit is working right.
Ideas? Yes, I think the problem is the water pump. Don't drive it overheated till you get a new water pump or have it inspected. You say it's a small leak where it bolts to block, but maybe it's the "weep hole" on bottom of pump leaking, meaning the internal seals on the pump have failed. If so, it won't be a small leak, it will leak all the time engine is running. A lot may be swept away by air, or by evaporating. Check it out. That's a likely cause of overheating.

Car overheated and lost all power. how do I get it to start?


ENGINE NOT GOING TO START IF GET TOO HOT FIRST THING I WOULD REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP THEN ADD COOLANT UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL CORRECT THATS WHEN THERMOSTAT OPEN UP AND TOP HOSE HOT.CHECK FOR LEAKING RADIATOR HOSES CHECK TOP RADIATOR HOSE CHECK BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE.CHECK FOR LEAKS AROUND THE RADIATOR LOOK DOWN BELOW COOLANTS FANS CHECK FOR LEAKS AT RADIATOR CORES OR LEAKS AT THE RADIATOR PLASTIC SIDE CONTAINERS. CHECK FOR LEAKS AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE AND CHECK FOR LEAKS AT THE HEATER HOSES AROUND ENGINE BLOCK TO THE HEATER CORE HOSES. THERE IS A REASON CAR OVERHEAT.IF CAR OVERHEAT WHILE DRIVING YOU HAVE FAULTY THERMOSTAT OR LEAKING OUT COOLANT OR BLOWN HEAD GASKET.IF ENGINE OVER HEAT WHILE SITTING DURING A LONG IDLING PERIOD.YOU COULD HAVE FAULTY COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OR FAULTY COOLING FAN FUSE OR RELAY.HOT WIRE COOLANT TO SEE IF IT RUNS IF NO REPLACE FAN MOTOR. IF YES FAN MOTOR COULD HAVE FAULTY WIRE OR PCM FAILURE. CHECK ENGINE CRANKCASE IF OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE ENGINE HEAD GASKET LEAKING.

1999 Jeep GC Laredosmells hot but never overheats


Depending upon how many miles are in your week, it is possible that the leak is so small that it is only coming out as "seepage" which is being burned off or evaporating before it reaches the ground. It is also possible for it to be going out the tailpipe at a rate so small that it is going undetected. i suggest you have a shop do a fluorescent dye test and a hydrocarbon test to find the source. Sometimes you can see it if it's on the outside if you look carefully. Look around the head/block parting line and see if there is any white residue at or below it.(same goes for all hose connections etc) Also look under the bottom of the water pump pulley...there is a "weep hole" located there that will begin seeping if the pump seal is going bad. Also check the radiator cap. If it isn't sealing correctly it can allow coolant loss that will go undetected while driving.
It is often difficult to find a small leak but if taken care of now you will avoid far more extensive damage later.
good luck

My 1995 jeep grandcherokee laredo overheats very quickly (less than 5 mins). I removerd the radiator cap and inserted water. Suddnely beside the battery smoke started coming out. The car was turned off....


You have a leak in your radiator or radiator hose.
That is the reason why your engine tuns hot very quick.
Because there is not enough cooling liquid.
Also the reason why when you refill it can steam because the water leaks on the hot engine components.

PS NEVER remove the radiator cap when the engine is over heated or hot,
you will lower the boiling point because of the reduce in pressure and that can make the cooling liquid spout out as hot steam,
with the risk of severe burn injuries.

Overheating,reserve coolant tank boiling I have a 2000 Ford Taurus with the similar problem. I had my water pump replaced then this started.


Ford 2000 Taurus

To solve the problem you have the things to do in this order;

) When the engine is cold top off the radiator with fluid. (When the pump was replaced the fluid should have been also)
) Make sure the radiator fluid has anti-freeze in it. This is also anti boil also !
) Add fluid to the overflow reservoir.
) Make sure the drive belt was replaced on the water pump.
) With the engine running, you can add fluid to the radiator for the first minute or so. You want to get air pockets out.
) Replace radiator cap.
) Let car warm up. When it's hot you should get the radiator fan coming on.
) When it get hotter the air-conditioning fan may come on.
) If the fan does not come on, the heat sensor is probably bad.
) If all fans come on, and it overheats, you may have a bad thermostat. Trace the upper radiator hose to where it connects to the engine. That's where it located.

Do not operate the engine when it overheats, You will damage the head gaskets and cause radiator fluid to leak into the cylinders.
If you smell radiator fluid in the exhaust fumes, it may already be leaking.
