Gage isn't reading that temp is hot but when we got to our destination after driving only about 15 miles - saw steam coming from under hood and heard fluid boiling. Checked and noticed the hose connecting to heater core had a hole and it was leaking from there. Thermostat seems to be openin g. He fixed hose n next day samething happened and it was at night. What else could be issue besides needing new hose?
