Engine coolant overheat warning. Poured coolant into radiator and then the overflow tank. Leaks from the driver's side under a big black component. Steam/smoke has come from the black box. Can see moisture along a long silver plate to the black box. Had my transmission repaired/replaced Nov 2010 and this is when the engine started overheating. Can see where the leak comes from everything on top is dry it is somewhere underneath but doesnt' leak constant. Can drive car

You will have to pressure test the cooling system and track the leak back to it's origin.
