Hello patty and crew. I have an automotive question for you regarding my 1993 Geo Prizon. For some strange reason it keeps overheating. I know this can be tricky to diagnose but I'll try to give you the symptoms logically. When I turn on the ignition key and within two or three minutes I see and smell steam coming from around the radiator cap. The main upper radiator hose is warm and has tension so I think the system is pressurized by the water pump. But the bottom hose is cool as well as the bottom of the radiator. I flushed out the radiator and there wasn't much debris and the radiator was replace 2 years ago. So I'm not quite sure what the problem is. But within ten minutes the car will overheat and the temperature gauge will red line. Do you have any idea what's going on. many thx Mike
