Here's the story....
As I was driving home today, my car suddenly stopped. I thought that maybe it overheated and checked the coolant. When I opened the hood, I noticed the coolant was empty, so I filled it up, waited a few minutes and then proceeded to drive. It stopped again, and I could smell that it was overheating, although there was no steam coming from under the hood. The low fuel light had just turned on, and I eventhough it needed gas, I thought, it generally means I have a few miles to go. A guy suggested that maybe I ran out of gas, so I put gas in it, waited a few minutes and then drove it home (all within a few miles). As I pulled into the parking space, it died again. This time there was steam coming from under the hood.
Could running out of gas cause overheating?
Does overheating indicate that I need a new radiator?
How much does is cost to repair/replace a radiator?
On another note... what is the estimated cost to replace two front wheel bearings?
Any information is greatly appreciated.
