I have a nb Miata and my radiator has a leak
in it. The top plastic part cracked and spits
out coolant and pure white smoke once the
car heats up. I noticed that my car overheats
after a small drive. But even with the leak
shouldn’t it still be able to pump coolant
through out the car? Also the coolant reservoir
is full and I noticed that it won’t go down yet
the car over heats.... is this all dew to the leak
in the radiator? I’m this picture I indicated the
crack in the plastic radiator with a red line....
Study Boyle's Law. Then remove the egg on your face, smile, and realize a coolant system in an automobile is PRESSURIZED in order to raise the boiling point of water-coolant bath. Ever notice that when you open a carbonated beverage it releases gets bubbles as it sits and warms up. Aha.... Replace that radiator; aftermarket ones are cheap enough.
