Default oh crap.

So im sitting on the side of the road. Was sitting in traffic, car started idling really har i mean hard. So i gave it some gas and it bogged WAY down. The. White smoke came from what seemed to be the underside of the motor. I was able to pull into a very small lot......it starts right up. Does this sound like an overheat? There is no spilled fluid anywhere as far as i can see. Engines still too hot to check the coolant.....

Temp was slightly over normal. Oil is full. Raid fluid is full. No codes except a P0113. Air intake temp sensor.

Im trying to upload a video to youtube of the noise the engine is making.

Every time it idles for more than 30 seconds or so it wants to just flat out die now. White smoke comes from the engine. There is zero fluid leak from anywhere, and all the fluids are full.

Waterpump going? i know they weep but i can not access the weep hole.

I would think it would through a code for cat. Smoke out of tail pipe? Or under car? If a bearing was going in alt. Or other accessorie and smoking the belt. It would bog the engine.

Steam from under the bonnet(hood) would suggest that either the fan is not running or the radiator cap isn't holding. I wouldn't go on the temp gauge reading alone, if it has boiled up there's prolly very little coolant left in it

Smoke feom the engine. Blew out from under where the oil pan is......only accessory down there is the ac unit......now that i think of it the Ac lines were frosted. Even though i never use the ac. Could the ac pump cause this?

And spanner. Coolant is full.
