The water has to be going somewhere most likely out the exhaust or inti the oil check both of those. Have your battery checked if ok alternator or wiring bad.

Steam coming from radiator but not losing water while driving


Doesn't seem to do something, will get you into
a not so good situation

Why are you using it vs: finding out the cause of the steam?

You either have a bad radiator or hose or some type
of leak being burned off on hot parts

I have 90 toyota 2.4 liter pickup. Its loosing coolant and dont know where its going. Has new t stat, new radiator,new fan clutch, new water pump. Oil isnt milkie and does not smoke. Help!


i would do a compresstion test. If you cant see it loseing coolant on the ground it has to be in the motor, if the oil not milkie and you dont see smoke. ok fell the radiator up with water and let it get to warmed up dont drive it let it get warm. after it warms up open the hood look at your hoses be careful the coolent/water will be hot. first look at all the hoses see if any are swollen or cracked becareful give the motor little rpm like 2000 rpm's this will put more presher in the coolent system and you should see a leak if there is one lot of time you cant see if its leaking after you drive it some holes are very small if you cant find it let me know and i will have you try something else. theres 2 things there for you to try

The temp gauge reads correctly for a while then it starts going from cool to hot faster the water can change temp. I have changed the sensor


try the thermostat, located on the top radiator hose. top side of engine. also does it steam?? does it lose water but no leak, does the heat blow hot? if your heat isnt hot and it steams and loses water you may have a cracked head or head gasket. if you have heat, doesnt lose water and doesnt steam it may also be your water pump. most pumps will leak visibly from the weep hole when running

Running hot if you dont put water or antifreeze in it everytime you drive it, smoke and steam comes from the engine when stopped, one fan wont come on but its not the fuse,etc..


Your first task is to locate where the smoke and steam is issuing from. The possible sources are (from cheapest to most expensive) Heater core hoses or radiator hoses or thermostat housing gasket failed or radiator or head gasket.

If you can find where the steam, or water is coming from, I cant tell you what to do then. The second fan will not come on until really hot, usually only one fan runs.

91 accord lx overheating, leaking fluid but no smoke or steam? i have a 91 accord 180,000 miles awesome car but just now started over heating. no smoke or steam are coming out i don't know is that means...


the green colour will be antifreeze additive in the water, you should really trace the leak source as it is bound to continue or worsen without repair. You could try a product called CE-LIT which comes in little packets, looks like chopped up grass or silica - add to hot radiator and run at idle for several minutes, it is really good if you can find it where you live. I put a screwdriver thru the rad when fixing my number plate in the snow, huge leak ensued, ce-lit closed it within 5 minutes and I was able to drive off. Never leaked again either, if you cant find that one, get a similar one, but not the liquid leak sealers like barr's as they are ****.

Cars losing coolant pressure not losing coolant running very hot!


you need to verify and fill the coolant in the radiator and reserve when the engine is cold,also check to make sure your cooling fans are kicking on when it is hot

This is a COMMON sign of a Blown Head Gasket. You will not have an oil leak from it on this Car and it will Overheat VERY Rapidly. You could also be correct on the Water Pump Problem, But, It is hard to change out especially since you just put it back together.

Hi there!

This isn't going to be good news Im afraid. These symptoms are typical of head gasket failure.

Head gaskets can fail on one of 3 ways -
#1 Rupture to outside from cylinder - Lots of oil, steam, fire maybe - it's pretty obvious.
#2 Rupture from cylinder into an oilway - You burn lots of oil, blue smoke, lack of power, oil forced out of fillercap, dipstick, air filter gets black.
#3 Rupture from cylinder into coolant channel. You use water - but no leaks under car. White steamy exhaust on starting, Coolant overheats quickly and appears to boil. Inspection of coolant is sometimes oily.

Yours sounds like #3

It probably needs the cylinder head off and the gasket replaced. Quite a time consuming job, but DIY-able with the correct tools.

You can check the compression of the cylinders first just to make sure it is this and not leaks somewhere else -

Check out PetesPonies post on the mustang forum about leaks around the intake manifold. It may be easier to check this first.

Thanks for using Fixya! If it solves your problem, please rate as such. Thank you.
