The last time I used my car when I stoped there was lots of steam comming from under the hood so I open it and it looks like the steam is comming from the top front of the engine.

Do you
have the same problem?

Was it raining or snowing at the time? Has the level gone down in the coolant reservoir? If it has, you likely have a leak that must be diagnosed immediately before the engine overheats. Overheating often leads to a warped cylinder head or leaking head gasket, and very expensive repairs. Better to have a mechanic look at it to avoid more costly repairs from ignoring it.
