So today, driving, crusin, listening to tool, just got my amp installed, I started noticing this horrid smell, look in the rear view mirror SMOKEEEEEE, quiet the long trail behind me, open the hood, reservoir cracked, spraying coolant all over everthing, managed to see a autozone pulled in, got some proxy worked it in, BUT when i hooked everything back up I saw a bunch of air being blown into the reservoir engine kept overheating, let it sit for 30 minutes, eventually got home after letting it sit 30 minutes each time it over heated, NOW...

My question is I turned the heat way up, and didn't feel anything inside the cabin, so I'm assuming its just the thermostat and not the water pump, what do you guys think :D?


[mecry] Seriously sad though, I love my focus D: <3

Sound like head gasket. Air bubbling in to bottle.

How did you add coolant back in? If you don't have it topped off you will have trapped air in the engine, probably the heater core as well which is why you did not get any heat out of it. Please tell me you topped it off before driving it home?
