immature- Anyway 2 wks later my a/c went warm and the temp gage maxed

steam- What are the possible damages and is what my husband did related to
this problem?

What he did was probably exacerbate a problem that was already there - a weak head gasket that blew, or water pump failure. You won't know for certain until you have it inspected.
