I have no idea what would cause a car to overheat emitting dense steam. When a car overheats, the first thing I check is the thermostat. When a car emits steam, I look for the place where the steam is coming from. I usually think two different problems are happening at the same time.

Why do pipes in a steam heating system need to be insulated?

In a steam heating system, the pipes transport steam or water vapor to the radiators to heat the building. Insulating the pipes reduces the amount of heat lost to the surrounding environment. Any heat lost in the pipes cannot be used to heat the radiators, and causes the system to be less energy efficient.

What type of energy does a steam in power plant have?

There is actually several answers, depending on what you are looking for in your answer. Heat energy, the energy that is imparted to the steam from an external heat source. motive energy, the energy in the steam that moves it through the piping. internal energy, the energy that causes the steam to expand. external energy, the energy that the steam holds that can be used to heat or drive machinery. and entropy, the unuseable energy that is lost in any energy system, (loss to the universe).
