I have a 96 with a 3.8 my sin was driving and it over heated started running bad but when cooled off started and ran fine however steam was coming from the top right side of moter like where the intake and head go together. No water in oil so i was wondering if this is possibly the head gasket.

I ran into the same problem.. It turned out that I had blown the head gasket and messed up a plug. The car still ran fine how ever I kept loosing coolant but none was in the oil. I suggest pulling the head and having a look. Oh just so u know I also had to have the head worked.

a compression test would help tell us if the cylinder is leaking combustion gases.. they also have these chemical test strips that tell if any of the combustion gases are in the coolant.. just stuff you can do without taking the engine apart
