Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

Sounds like it blew a radiator hose, then all that water/coolant spraying everywhere...even in to cabin ventilation...moisture played heck with electronic components as for the gauges. They did put new hoses on with new radiator....right? If not I bet that's what happened.
