LEAKING COOLANT MYSTERY Sign In

Car: Toyota Avalon 1996. Temp is ok. not overheating.
With any fluid in overflow tank my car steams and when I open the hood, it has spilled around the radiator.
Soon the overflow tank is empty, and steam is gone.
Car can't seem to hold any fluid in overflow tank.
I replaced the 'relatively' new radiator, still there is spillage and the new radiator did not change anything. Any thoughts? I am wondering if I should replace the thermostat?

This has a very simple solution. Just pressure test the cooling system and locate the leak.
