Default What's wrong with my car?

Smoke coming from radiator, engine doesn't accelerate as normal when I push the gas. I had a leaking hose I changed it now these problems. What's wrong with the car? I have a 1990 Lexus ls 400.

Depending on issues we very likely have loss of coolant. This can lead to engine seizure. Depending on car..we may have de fuelling due to sensor showing wrong data etc or possibly even deliberate reduced fuelling to save engine as part of ECU programme.















Fix over heating eg rad issues. Have diagnostic scan run.

The coolant isn't leaking but it disappears from time to time!!! And it's not overheating, everytime it's overheated I've stopped it.

Considering its a 1990, I think it just divorced you. Strip clubs open though

It could have blown head gaskets, warped and cracked cylinder heads and may have started to seize up depending on how long the engine was run in the overheated state. That V6 is very complex and is stuffed into a tight compartment, making it hard to work on.
