At first the overheating with no low coolant indicator or steam started. I had the thermostat replaced but the leak got worse and now it is steaming and I can literally see and hear the coolant as it flows out of the bottom of the car. I need to know if I need to replace the radiator and if so with what kind of radiator? With an oil cooler or not? Is it even the radiator that needs to be replaced?

Here's the problem I can't see where the leak is your my eyes. So is it coming from under the front bumper area?

Your going to have to see if its actually coming from the radiator and not a hose. Sounds like the radiator but I can't see if it actually is. Do you have transmission cooler lines going to your radiator now?Is it a automatic transmission? What size engine do you have?
