I suspect a blown head gasket or a stuck-closed thermostat having blown out the radiator from the pressure if you have steam coming from the radiator and can't see where it's coming from. If the radiator is ruptured, you'll probably need a new one. If the radiator fan is not working except when you wiggle the wires, that may have caused a blown head gasket or ruined the thermostat.
