check your radiator for cracks or your hoses for tightness. also be sure bypass hose or any hose is intact. look closely for where smoke is cominig from. that is the clue where the leak is...IT COULD BE SMALL. .... after 20 years of service my plastic radiator gave out..that seems to be the lifespan of that type.
