Had some overheating problems but bled the system all seemed ok.It did red line 2xs but I blasted the heater & shut her down topped of the coolant bled it again.  Driving home I used the cruise control for the first time and poof total shut down had to wait for a tow truck. My oils clear fluids are fine but it just sounds like the starters spinning when I try to start it. Some one said I overheated it to much and need to replace my motor I say BS any ideas
