Default What's wrong with my car?

White steam billows from the radiator area and none of my fans work, it's not a gasket problem the mechanic told me this already. I have a 1990. Lexus ls 400.

Obviously it would be a fan problem. The engine is overheating. If you keep over heating the engine, you will ruin it.

Thermostat is blocked therefore there is no coolant circulation in the engine. It's acting just like a kettle instead. If a mechanic has already looked at it he should have told you this. Otherwise he hasn't got a clue about engines and you should go to another garage quickly.
