2011 Chevy Aveo Overheating

Asked by Aug 16, 2019 at 07:28 PM about the 2011 Chevrolet Aveo LS Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi y’all! I’m a 22 year old girl so if none of this
makes sense I’m sorry lol
I just moved to Las Vegas from Minnesota a
couple weeks ago (huge temperature change)
((hauled the car here on a trailer)) ever since I
started driving it here it was doing this weird thing
where it revs up randomly after driving it for more
than approximately 10 minutes. When I am braking
at a stop sign or to make a turn it will rev up to 2
RPMs, when I hit the gas after being stopped it
just wouldn’t go for 5 to 10 seconds. I had to make
a 30 minute drive to the other side of town for a
work obligation and when I returned to my car I
noticed a liquid on the ground on the front drivers
side. I honestly didn’t know if it had come from my
car or not because I wasn’t away from the car for
more than 20 minutes. I drove about a mile to go
home and I noticed the temperature gauge was
past the middle just slightly so I called my dad who
told me to pull over. I was already in a turn lane to
get onto a highway so I was forced to pull over on
a ramp to enter a very busy highway (there was
plenty of room it was a safe place) by the time I
turned off the car the temperature gauge was all
the way to the red line “H”. I waited for a tow truck
for three hours in 110 degree heat but that’s
beside the point  I had to keep the car “on” but
obviously not running eventually to charge my
phone so the tow truck could locate me. After
towing my car to my house, the next day my dad
believed he could fix it, we noticed there was no
fluid in the radiator fluid thing. We filled it with
water and then tried to turn on the car but the
engine would not turn over. We charged the
battery, it then turned on. My dad located a leak in
what he called the heating hose so we removed
the hose and noticed light brown gunky build up
inside of the hose. We purchased a new hose at
auto zone and replaced it and now the car seems
to be running fine, I drove it today not too far and it
was still doing a little bit of the revving but didn’t
start to overheat or anything. Should I see a
mechanic? Or let my dad fix it based on his older
expertise lol. I don’t want to end up on the side of
the road again :/ also don’t want to hurt his
feelings
