Fuels, petrol or diesel, are known as hydrocarbon (hydrogen and carbon) fuels and so when burned in air (oxygen) one of the resulting products is a considerable amount of H2O or water. Mostly this is expelled through the exhaust as vapour but at certain times, such as when the air is cold and dry and the engine and exhaust system is cool, the vapor will condense and emerge as steam and water droplets. When a vehicle has lots of short journeys, the exhaust can become waterlogged where the silencers can retain a great deal of water and are likely to be spitting water droplets almost continuously. Often the sound at the tailpipe will be more harsh than usual. Some manufacturers have a small hole at the lowest point of a silencer to allow surplus water to drain away and sometimes a mechanic will drill a hole... Spitting water and emitting steam is often seen as a sign of a failing head gasket and the confusion is understandable as it is a natural function and could be a symptom of head gasket trouble but it is a symptom that should not warrant much attention in isolation - clearly if a failing head gasket is the source of water spitting from the tailpipe, the coolant level will be mysteriously falling without obvious leakage and often the engine will suffer a misfire on starting...

Check the 10 amp PCM/BCM relay fuse inside the car. If that isn't it, please get back to me, and tell me again how you got it to start--how did you jump the relay?

Have the OBD read as this will give you the codes for any problems, I would think it's ignition related but OBD will narrow down the fault

The engine does have to be raised. The bolts are not easy to get to until the engine is lifted and the engine mount is removed. I'm doing this job right now and the book time is around 5 hours.

Probably a front wheel bearing is going bad

2002 Chevrolet... • Answered on Jul 02, 2018

You have a bearing hub (sealed unit) To remove it, first remove the nut from the axle in the hub center, Remove caliper and brake rotor. You can access the hub attachment bolts through the holes in the wheel flange. You may need to put a chisel between the hub and knuckle (keep alternating sides) to break it free (they generally get pretty rusted in) use a good amount of solvent. Once it's out, clean the cavity and put a swipe of grease inside so new one goes in more easily. draw it tight evenly and replace remainder of what you removed. If it is extremely rusted you can rent a slide hammer to get it out but generally with a bit of patience they do break free.

I think you could use this manual method instead.. My nephew used it to repair my car and it's totally perfectly fine now. Here's the website he bought it from. www.reliable-store.com

If you've replaced the sensor, then you've got a connector or wiring harness issue.

A couple of things. Your thermostat could be stuck or you have air i your coolant system. Bleed your coolant system. If the coolant is low, you can also have that issue so check for a coolant leak. If you check your oil and it looks like chocolate milk, then you could have a blown head gasket. Check all of these first.

Did you do a good visual inspection of the headlight area for anything obvious? Perhaps the crash jacked up your wiring. If you had to jimmy the switch to get high beams to work, that tells me the switch could be the problem. Take a look at a wiring diagram and do some basic troubleshooting if you have a multimeter. Here is a link with a couple of diagrams and suggestions that were given to another person with this problem. The headlight on my 2002 impala quit working All fuses are
