My 97 Tahoe puked the radiator
On the way to movie last night with the Mrs... temp guage pegged to the right (HOT) and light came on 'check guages' duh... I had just pulled into parking lot, so let it sit while in the movie, figured maybe a stuck thermostat. On way home, temp guage ran normal, heat coming in, it was -8 degrees.
This morning on way to breakfast with son in law, again, temp guage pegged to right (HOT) as we pulled into Perkins and right then, blewie...steam rolling from under hood. Shut down and after steam cleared, looked like the drivers side radiator hose, on top next to windshield 'add' resevoir, blowing antifreeze all over. Not sure if its the hose or cracked radiator. Had it towed to my mechanic, he will get at it on Monday. Ive never had a thermostat lock up but there was no heat in the car and engine overheating, so my guess is the 'stat'. Anyone else ever go thru this? grrrr cold weather.
Anti freeze was full a week ago when I checked all fluids, oil normal full.
The movie was GREAT, loved it, will buy the DVD when it comes out.
