WHY WAS SMOKE COMING FROM UNDER MY BONNET

1998 Ford Focus • 11,105 miles

Smoke was coming from behind the grille of my car the other night, ive checked my radiator & there doesnt seem to be a leak & all the fluids are topped up to where they should be, i.E, oil, brake fluid, my water temp indicator goes to the half way mark on the dial but its always done that since I bought my car in july this year

Could be overheating and you're not aware, have it further checked

Ill get it checked out soon as but I was wondering if you knew the reason it could over heat when all fluids are full & what do you suggest I should do if it starts over heating whilst im driving to garage

When that needle goes over 220deg-best just pull over and let cool down
