Smoke or possible steam coming out of grill.

Asked by Mar 06, 2016 at 06:41 PM about the 2014 Chevrolet Impala 2LT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have a 2014 Impala LT.  After driving about 4 miles and stopped at a red light I noticed smoke probably steam coming out from the hood--probably the grill.
I parked and opened the hood and it appeared to be coming out of the grill.  Has 26,000 miles on it.  The oil is O.K. and the anti-freeze appears O.K.   A few hours later I took out for a test drive for 20 minutes and put on 4 miles but no problem.  The temp gage read 180 Degrees but that doesn't seem unusual , I think.   Was never in the red zone.    Stumped.

You might be overly cautious. It still under warranty, bring it to dealer to start claim. Personally I think it's weather conditions had impact on what you saw as steam.

Just keep an eye on the coolant tank reservoir level, it is more consistent to check the level in the morning when it has sat overnight. coolant level should be at the cold level at this time.

I appreciate both answers and will contact dealer. Thank you.
