My 96 Astro van overheated on my way to work so before I even started it to head home, I put water in the reservoir. Immediately, water came out from the bottom somewhere & it looked like mud!

The heater also quit just when it overheated, which has never happened before on any car I've had that overheated. What am I looking at in the way of repairs?

Start by locating the source of the leakage and rectifying it. It could be a burst hose, stopper etc. Muddy fluids from the cooling system indicates the coolants are long overdue for replacement. After rectifying the leakage, have the system flushed before putting in coolant.

You mentioned the heater, quitting, does the air stop blowing or the air blown out is not warm/hot?
