Jeff Posted January 27, 2004 Report Share Posted January 27, 2004 Well, the new board looks good... Last night it got down to about 18 with a 25-30 mph North wind all night. (Texas) The car said it was 24 when I cranked up this morning. Heard a ticking sound under the hood. It went away when the temp gauge started to move. I had driven about 4-5 miles on my way to work and in my sleepless stupor, I had not been watching my gauges. The car starts yelling, "STOP ENGINE NOW" Then says, "ENGINE COOLANT HOT" The gauge was just entering the Red Zone when I pulled off the road, but by the time I got it stopped, it was pegged out- it said, "ENGINE OVERHEATED" and I turned her off. So I opened the hood and nothing... No hissing- no steaming- no boiling or crackling- no water leaking- just nothing. It didn't even feel hot. No hotter than usual any way. I had my wife come pick me up and I haven't looked at it since. I thought I should consult my board of directors first. Could my thermostat freeze shut overnight? Could it be a false reading? I don't think it got hot- but if it did, what should I do? I would know what to do to some old Chevy or something, but I want to do my baby right!
