Water pump failure? When this happens the engine can heat VERY, VERY fast. Within a minute you can go from "ok" to "dead engine".

Once water stops circulating, the small volume within the engine overheats. Not getting circulation out of the engine to your heater core explains the lack of heat.

Did you stop driving????? You need to get it to the dealer.


PS What does 'patriots win over miami' have to do with the car?
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
