Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I WAS DRIVING THE CAR DOWN THE ROAD AND THE TEMPURATURE STARTED TO RISE. I CHECKED THE RADIATOR AND THERE WAS NO WATER. WHEN I TRIED TO START IT, IT WOULD NOT START.

MR. LAMB...YOU RAN THE CAR WITH NO WATER IN THE RADIATOR...THE RADIATOR COULDN'T COOL THE CAR...THE CAR RAN HOT...WHEN CARS (OR TRUCKS) RUN HOT THEY GET DAMAGED...MOST LIKELY DAMAGE IS A BLOWN HEAD GASKET AND/OR CRACKED CYLINDER HEAD...BLOWN HEAD GASKET AND/OR CRACKED CYLINDER HEAD WON'T ALLOW A CAR (OR TRUCK) TO START...
Agree, a major overheat is one of the worst things to occur. Components can seize and warp when this happens.
