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.
