Hello,

This sounds like your radiator cap is bad or you have a hole in your radiator somewhere. You need to carefully figure out where the steam is coming from, if possible, and get back to us. The safest way to do this is to do a cooling system pressure test. Here is a link to a guide explaining how to do this below:

Please go through this guide and get back to us with how everything turns out.

Thanks,
Alex
