Arrgh! Engine overheating!!!!!
The upper radiator hose blew last night about a 1/4 mile from home. Saw the hose was ripped and replaced. Still overheats after refilling the radiator. I've done nothing else....yet. This is a bad omen is it not?

You will have to bleed the cooling system and go from there :thumbup:

Thanks. Just read up on how to do it and now the temperature needle is happy again. Crisis averted!

Wow, this was probably the quickest fix to a "Help, Engine Overheating!!" thread of all time! Good job to both! Typically it is a month long thread of what parts have been replaced, and then new problems that arise.

Lucky and agreed, one of the quickest replies/fixes. :thumbup:
