It is all in how fast and how hot the car is getting,if it doe,s not take long for car to heat up,you need to have it repaired as soon as possible,if it take,s it,s time to heat up,then you may be all right,for short run,s,but don,t let it cost you to have damage to your motor,if it, is running warm,my advice would be fix it now.

Exactly, TST is correct. Especially if it's leaking or noisy it won't be long until it quits. HTH. -Jim
