My 1994 Acura Legend over heats. There isn't any coolant in the oil, nor white steam coming out of the tail pipe. All hoses are tight and no leaks are noted. The fans are working properly. However, there is back boiling in the radiator and loss of coolant...

What is causing this ?

My fiat palio 16 valve, its boiling I took the themostat out but its still boiling and the fan is running properly I was thinking maybe my water pump is not circulating the water!

I'm thinking you have a head gasket problem
have a compression test done
put a new thermostat back in the right way
(removing a thermostat allows the coolant to flow to fast to exchange the heat to the air passing through the radiator
check for blocked radiator

07 town car...after I drive my car for a smokes a little when I cuts it off plus I hear a bubbling noise

bubbling noise is the radiator boiling. If you have a viscous fan hub the have it replaced as the engine is getting too hot. When you stop an engine thee is still heat being transferred from the combustion chambers into the coolant. When the engine temp is close to boiling , this heat will cause the coolant to boil when you shut the engine down

2004 explorer 4.0 coolant reservoir boils over when stabolized at normal level, no heat when level drops temp indicator normal

go to autozone rent the free tool called a block tester buy the fluid for it (about $8.00 us)drive the car make sure the resivour is about 3 inches down so you dont suck any fluid into block tester. pour blue fluid into block tester put it in antifreeze resavour. squeeze bulb sucking air from resouivour for up to 2 minutes if fluid turns yellow your head gaskets are leaking. I think you may find this to be your problem

Antifreeze boiling over when car is overheatind and Wen its not overheating changed thermostat radiator bled and flushed it changed temperature switch no oil and water mixture No smoke

Check the over flow tank located in front of the passenger side glove box for water or fluid. When driving the car, listen by the glove box to see if you car hear a boiling sound. If you can hear water boiling or moving, check your heater core to make sure it is not plugged or bad. When the car starts to over heat, does the gauge register that it is getting hot? If it doesn't then check the thermostat to make sure it is not stuck open or closed. If its over heating and the gauge is not showing that the car is running hot before boiling over, then the thermostat is defective or not working. Try replacing it again.

I have a jaguar s type 2003 model 2.5ltre which constantly keeps sounding when at rest like a kettle boiling water. i have had it serviced by a jaguar main dealer 6months ago and had to return it back on 6...

Valve covers (or Rocker covers) are notorious for oil leaks on many types of cars. (Dont know yours) BUT If it is hot enough to boil oil, you have a serious FIRE Hazard ! That could easily burst into flame any time.

Are you sure its not water seeping out of the head gasket? That would readily sizzle on the heat shield and constantly sound like boiling water. Makes more sense to me.

What type of Jag dealer would miss this? Six times ! I would try a reputable local mechanic.
good luck

The thermostat could be stuck closed. It also could be the cooling fan motor
