Car overheats and I drove it around the neighborhood and when I came back and turned it off steam came from the belt area yes they are all tight the guy I bought it from said it needed a thermostat and a temp sensor? Could this be the problem

  • Can you give us any more information about the car itself? What is the year/model/engine? Where exactly is the steam coming from? Dec 24 '18 at 13:04

Identify the component that is creating the steam before replacing random components. Stuck shut thermostat would overheat but you have a leak of pressure. Could be water pump, hose etc. Check first, then replace Why didnt previous owner replace these components?
