white smoke :[

so on hot days or when i have a little fun with my car, white smoke, thin not heavy smoke i have to sqiunt to see it, but it comes out from behind the TB.
like i said it doesnt do that all the time. i know there is a leak back there i just dont know what it is cause im not loosing oil or any other fluid.. smells like crap though, its falling on my exhuast tubing and cat.
and also i checked my PS fluid and it was bubbling hot. why?

white smoke = coolant, which flows thru the Fast Idle Thermo Valve (FITV) at the bottom of the TB. see if its leaking there, or anywhere around the TB

I found out why my P/S fluid was bubbling:
1. The seal on the reservoir cap is missing.
2. The metal pipe going to the actual pump is seal and I can pull it out easily,
which would explain why my steering shakes or vibrates sometimes right?

As for the coolant leak.. i cant find it.. but the coolant reservoir is bone dry so I'm filling it up tomorrow..though my car never even exceeds 1/4 the temp guage, even on hot days or when i rev high.. And also my radiator hose is leaking oil? Ithink... and i thought I was burning oil too, but the dipstick shows a tad over full...
aye..
And its clicking worse..
Too much work for a highschool kid's DD.. i wish i had more time and money..

Cash68 can only hope to improve
Oil is probably just leaking ONTO the radiator hose from somewhere, covering it in oil. Good luck with the leaks though, they're always a bitch.

Unless the gravity in my engine bay is magically reversed when my cars on.. the hose is above everything.. Unless my engine is spitting oil.. but then there would be more and it would be everywhere and its not..
Thanks, but by the end of this year begging of next I'll be doing a motor swap to either a JDM b20a or a moded b20a5 with less miles.
