Check radiator To try and expand on that thought...

That particular part of the engine has a number of places where the

engine coolant system come together - lots of joints/seams/hoses,


You're going to have to study the area, bright light comes in

handy, to try and "pinpoint" the specific spot the vapor smoke is

coming from. And it's going to a small source since it's


Once you can tell exactly where it originates, there'll be plenty

of detailed help here - like how to change the radiator, waterpump,

thermostat, hoses, etc...
