Hi,
Plz Help me with this.
Yesterday i found my car overheat within 2 mins of starting the engine. So i stopped the car and checked and there was water flowing from down. After Cooling the radiator i checked the radiator for water and it was empty. So I refilled the radiator and then everything was fine. There was no leakage and no over heating.

So where did the water come from, am sure its somewhere from the radiator because i found over heat meter goes up so fast. Can someone tell me where and why water came.

CAR - Camry 2001
Thanks in Advance

You need to have the cooling system pressure tested for leaks. You will also have to get that water out of the system now. You never want to use straight water in the system. It will destroy it.

Pressure test as Hammer Time just suggested and don't drive it! Water pumps can do that meaning leak like crazy and quit but should leak actively with a pressure check.
Depending on how hot and exact engine just belt falling off a failed water pump can up to destroy whole engine!
