why was the car sitting for 2 weeks??? what parts did u have to get. mine looks like that right now as we speak when it gets hot and builds pressure because my belt snapped off one day and wasnt spining the water pump and got real hot...it very well could be a blockage but i doubt it

car was sitting because the rear calp locked up and was waiting on paycheck to fix it.

Also... i replaced the housing early summer with the CFM variant... useing the same T-state though. the water pump was done early summer too with timing belt and pullies

Had this happen to me with a hose with over 100k on it. The hose is bad. Replace it or it will replace you.

believe me i am... just never seen this happen

i was thinking there was a cause... and that was the effect

02slvrfocus 10-06-2012 09:08 PM

yeah i would change the hose since it got like that now but put a new one see what happens and let us know what happens after it gets hot
