My 2000 Buick LeSabre is running hot, no smoke from overheating, but felt as iff it was going to break down when I was parking.

Asked by Sep 07, 2016 at 09:41 AM about the 2000 Buick LeSabre Limited Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my 2000 Buick LeSabre has been running hot for about 6 days now, never
in the red.  Friday it went to the red, but did not overheat.  My husband
replaced the thermostat, but that is not the problem.  The car is running hot
after running for 20 minutes, and just now when I got to work it was in the
red, no steam/smoke from overheating, but as I went to park it started
jumping like it was going to break down.  I shut it off, and heard a loud
hissing.  Just went out to check it, did not start it, but there was a puddle of
antifreeze, under the car on the driver's side.
