Engine Cooling problem
1994 Mazda 626 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 188000 miles
I have a 1994 Mazda 626 ES. When I bought the car as is, the dealer told me that it had a water pump leak. Now, I have driven it for about a week. Never had a high temp reading on the indicator gauge. However, I do get a lot of white smoke / steam coming off the engine after I have driven it for 5 or more miles. I have looked repeatedly for a leak under the hood/under the car. From what I can tell, it appears that there is a spray of some sort being put on the engine. I say this because, I can see what appears to be a fine mist / spray on the engine parts that don't get hot (hoses)/on the inside of the tires, on top of engine, etc. I am thinking a high pressure leak in one of the hoses. What do you think, and what do you recommend?
