Question Asked: Why is my coolant temp over heating?
April 08, 2013, 08:53 PM
Today I was driving and my coolant temp started over heating. I immediately drove home. I discovered a tear in a radiator hose. I replaced the hose and flushed the coolant.
Once I started driving again after 5 min the engine coolant gauge starts going towards hot again and smoke is coming out of my tail pipe. Also the right side valve cover gasket was already minorly leaking and now it seems to smoking more.
I dont know if its the water pump possibly? Or a coolant issue. Or the valve cover gasket. But I know it was running fine even with the minor valve cover gasket leak up until today when the hose tore.
