This may sound like a dumb question, but I'm trying to see if anyone else is having a similar issue/occurance. Anytime we get rain, snow, etc. I always get steam coming out of the front of my Jeep. Its not noticeable while driving, but when coming to a stop its starts occuring. Almost looks like the Jeep is smoking, but its not. I have a feelings moisture is hitting something maybe on the radiator and steaming off. When its a dry day, no issue, no steam. Anyone else have this happen? Any fix? I appreciate any input.

Its probably just the water from driving hitting the hot Radiator .

mine steams out the hood vents when it rains... ha. That engine bay has lots of HOT stuff in it. Steam is inevitable.

The engine gets very hot. so when water gets on it it steams. Last year i drove through a deep puddle and when i came out it steamed for a while.

Also when you hit a puddle, the rotors are very hot as well so you'll see steam coming from the wheel wells as well. <----haha say that 3 times fast lol

Happens to me all the time, I was worried the first time, but I also had to replace the radiator the week before so I was not sure where the steam was from!
