Sounds like either you need a new alternator, or battery. Go to your local auto parts store to have them test them. Your battery is probably bad. :( Hope this helps, James Booth

On my 1999 oldsmobile alero. the overflow hose seem like it got a pin hold in it. because when i was driveing all this stam was comeing out. where is it comeing from?


Yes it could be a leak in the hose between the radiator and the overflow tank. The tank is supposed to hold excess coolant when the engine is hot and then release it back into the radiator when the engine is cool.

Dead Battery


it could be the alternator. Still could be battery too... Get the vehicle running and disconect the posative cable from the battery. This takes the battery out of the system and allows the vehicle to run just from the alternator. The battery is really only used to protect from surges as idle increases and to start the engine. So if you disconect it and it stays running then chances are your battery is developing a bad cell in it and will need to be replaced.
