1999 Isuzu hombre 6cyl, overheating billowing white smoke from the side of the radiator, upon adding coolant, it seemed to stop for a day, now the smoke is starting again. The coolant Reservoir is still full, not showing overheating on the thermostat, but the smoke continues, now it seems like its might be starting to affect the cams, head gasket, could it just need a water pump for my radiator?

IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY CAUSED OVERHEATING DAMAGE TO YOUR ENGINE. NOT GOOD

SOUNDS LIKE YOUR RADIATOR IS BUSTED? CAN YOU CONFIRM THIS?

WHAT PART OF THE COUNTRY DO YOU LIVE IN?

IF YOU ARE ABLE OR ONE OF YOUR PALS IS ABLE TO REPLACE IT, I MAY CAN SHOW YOU HOW TO PURCHASE IT CHEAPER AND HAVE IT IN YOUR HANDS WITHIN AN HOUR OF THE PURCHASE

I BOUGHT ONE AND MY FRIEND BOUGHT ONE RECENTLY. EACH OF US SAVED $40 ON THEM

I can confirm this is a slow leak from the radiator, there is small signs of corrosion, but would this have to do with my radiator pump going out?

SORTA HARD TO SAY

DID YOU HAVE AN OVERHEATING PROBLEM BEFORE THE RADIATOR GOT "BROKEN"

IF THE WATER PUMP QUIT PUMPING, EITHER THE BELT AIN'T ON IT. OR THE IMPELLER HAS A BAD THING GOING ON WITH IT. THIS WOULD MAKE IT OVERHEAT WITHIN 5 MINUTES OF DRIVING IT

IF THE WATER HAS BEEN "SEEPING" OUT OVER TIME, AND IT OVERHEATS. AND YOU CONTINUE TO DRIVE IT. SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE CAN, AND WILL OCCUR. NORMALLY IN THE HEAD AREA, BUT SOMETIMES WORSE. HEAD DAMAGE IS NOTHING TO LAUGH AT, IT CAN BE VERY EXPENSIVE.

THE DIMINISHING WATER LEVEL SHOULD HAVE BEEN DISCOVERED WHEN YOU. PERFORMED YOUR "WEEKLY OIL AND COOLANT LEVEL CHECKS", AS PRESCRIBED IN YOUR VEHICLE'S OWNERS MANUAL. NORMALLY FOUND IN ALL VEHICLE OWNER'S MANUALS, THEY NEVER SAY "WAIT 'TILL SUPER DOOPER LUBE GUY CHECK'S IT IN 4 MONTHS WHEN HE CHANGES YOUR OIL"

ALTHOUGH, I KNOW YOU NOW THAT YOU KNOW MR. RADIATOR NEEDS FIXIN' OR REPLACIN',

IF IT IS THE ORIGINAL, I'D RECOMMEND REPLACING IT

. WHO CAME UP WITH THE WATER PUMP DIAGNOSIS, AS THE PROBLEM. HAS IT GONE OUT. IS YOUR CAR AT THE MERCY OF A SHOP NOW?
