Pop your bonnet when you notice it coming out and try to narrow down where it's coming from. That way you will have a much better idea of what's causing it.

If its only on cold morning, could be damp / residue going down from bonnet / windscreen onto your engine as its heating up. Just an idea nonetheless!

I had this on my old car sometimes, if the engine was hot and it was raining, steam would come off the bonnet, didn't notice any coming through the grille though.

could be somethnig or nothing, personally if its a wee bit of steam id part the car somewhere with a dry floor and let the car run and heat up untill the fan comes in, watch the temp gauge and when the fan comes on look under the car, i had the same problem with a 1400 corsa last week all it was was a wee daft hole in the radiator and was letting steam out when the car heated up but after a while it was leaving a river underneath it

The guy he bought it off claimed it was done.
He got absolutely ripped off by Dave_A off Corsasport.
He sold it to Lee_H claiming it was mint, and it turned out it was a cat c or d writeoff.

I've not really had a look at it for him yet, always got some crap to do. Just got my GF's cousin's corsa to fix aswell. Petrol tanks leaking, rear cylinders leaking, and exhaust is held on with selotape :laugh:

I don't mind, I like to see the end results plus it gets me a bit of pocket money.
