Check the thermostat. Could be bad or stuck causing overheating and thus the steam. I would give more info but you did not supply what make/model your car is.

The water is not hot at all but the radiator is shooting the water out of the cap, and sending the water to the resivore and makes the resivore over flow.


Sounds like you may have a bad radiator. It may be clogged and the coolant is not able to go through it causing it to come out the cap and reserve tank.

Is transmission cooler located inside of radiator on 99 chevy suburban? (OEM) car froze at -3 temp fear we have antifreeze in trany fluid, fluid resivore is to full. also water leaking out under car...


I would not worry about antifreeze in the transmission. The pressure in the tranny cooler will not let any coolant get in. If it was leaking you would have tranny fluid in the radiator. You may have some freeze plugs that have pushed out or a cracked block or some coolant passage above the transmission. Get it pressure checked

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.

Engine is over heating and blowing air into coolant resivor and boiling coolant


The blowing of air into the coolant resevour is caused by a leaking head gasket. What's happening is the cylinder is blowing air into the cooling system causing this to happen.
