After driving in the rain or snow, i have an ungodly amount of steam coming thru the grill. My temp gauge is fine, and the smell is just "hot", No sweet smell, no fog on my windshild. no leaks seen.

Asked by Jan 26, 2017 at 12:11 PM about the 2007 Pontiac G6 GT Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Only happens in wet conditions. Temp never rises. It just smells "hot" not a scary smell. car has never overheated. I've read a few answers elsewhere that call this "normal", but in all my years, I've never seen a car, mine or someone else,  do this.

If car doesn't overheat and u only smell it when u run through poddles, it's normal since water splashes on to exhaust system which is hot.
