Steam seemed to be coming from all over the radiator, particularly the top half of the radiator. Not especially from near either the top or bottom hose. Ah well, I really should flush the system sometime in the next few months, so maybe I'll take advantage of that opportunity to replace the radiator anyway. In any event, I have a more pressing issue now: it sounds like I just rusted myself a hole somewhere in the exhaust plumbing. One practically requires ear protection to drive the car now. Not sure if the leak is at the exhaust manifold, or down towards the catalytic converter. Any pointers on how to pinpoint it? If it's something I can reach in the engine compartment I might try to fix it myself, otherwise I'll probably give it to a mechanic. Thanks, John
