What would make my radiator overheat? There is steam sometimes. The temperature gauge does not get to the 260 mark all the time. I don't always have to add a lot of water or antifreeze to it either. Please tell me what the problem could be. thank you
Sounds to me like you could be having a thermostat that is sticking closed causing it to over heat, I would look into getting your thermostat and gasket replaced. A full cooling system flush couldn't hurt either.
