| | HELP!!! SS overheated today on the way to school/work
Hey guys i was driving my car to work this morning and noticed my check guages light was on, so i looked down and my temp guage was damn near pegged, then i pulled over, shut it down for 5 mins, then it was back to normal, then after 2 minutes it went right back to pegged, then i drove it the rest of the way to school/work and it was about to do it again. i know thats not good, but i had to get to work. anyway, after im done, i go and add seriously 6 smaller sized gatorade bottles of water in and i get in and drive it home with no problems. Then i get home and notice that the radiator is almost bone dry, so i added a lot of water and antifreeze. I look down after i add it all in and i see a huge puddle under my car. There was a leak that looks like its coming from the front of the water pump.
Thats my scenario... now heres my question... What would i need to replace? thermostat? radiator? water pump? all of the above? Also, if i do need a new water pump or thermostat, i would go with a 160 t-stat and an electric water pump. Any suggestions on whats going on?
