Wife drove it home to me then all this with the BMTROUBLEU overheating.
I let the car cool off then filled with water and started up with heater on 90 degrees
and fan on got engine 2 normal temp everything ok i guess . test drove 1/2 mile
back in garage shut off ( then i heard air escaping from radiator cap must be the leak
replacing tomorrow and with some new coolant i lost tonight

NOTE : car always runs hot .radiator hoses bulge out when car is shut off after driving
like thier is always excessive pressure in system for years
New radiator, thermostat, overflow bucket
