Either the coolant level is low or the thermostat is not opening and car may be overheating.
Watch your temp guage to make sure it's not in the red. That can damage your head gasket.

Low coolant level, air in the coolant system, faulty thermostat or temp sensor can all cause this.

My power steering fluid is mixing with my radiator water and visa versa. what could the problem be?


It's most likely engine oil not power steering fluild and that's an indication of a blown cylinder head gasket. The gasket separates the coolant and oil ports in your engine. If not repaired in a timely manner, warpage can occur on the mating surfaces of the engine block from extreme temperatures resulting in higher repair costs.

Water/Coolant leaking from rear area of motor. Only happens when pressure and temp build up.


You have a failed hose or head gasket. When you have a few minutes free time and your engine is cold dry all of the wet places on the engine. Start the engine and let it reach normal operating temperature all the while watching for the leak. Many cases it it a collant hose leak at or near where the clamp attaches the hose to the fitting. As soon as you see coolant turn the engine off so you can see and hear better to find the source. At normal operating temperature it will retain pressure for a few minutes.
