the next day for 50 miles and never back in car to go home
and within 2 miles, it shot up to extreme hot in the red....sat, cooled, put
water in and drove and kept hot 3/4 way,,when stopped , got real
hot,,,going somewhat slow , it wasnt as hot..

1 Answer


Why do you have to add coolant? Is the coolant leaking out? I suspect that you are loosing all your coolant so find the leak. Check the hoses, water pump and radiator for leaks.
