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

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.
