my 2000 zx3 over heated about 1 mile from my house. dont know why yet it is still dark it has 113 k on it and has never acted up before. i wounder if i damaged the motor? as the temp gauge was pined and i shut the engine off about 30 seconds once the yellow light came on. hopeing it is just a hose or something small. i just did a 1200 round trip and the car ran great. very bad timeing as we where going to prime my 1963 ford convet tomorrow but i dont think so now.

check to make sure you didnt fry any rings and seals. Also, with our aluminum heads, that particular type of metal deforms when it overheats. check and make sure that it isnt warped because that can be a costly repair, but a good reason to get a P&P head ;-) if the car can run, if there is any smoke coming out of it, check the oil and coolant levels cuz there may be a blown seal/gasket.
