I was getting ready to change the thermostat last night, when I realized that the hose coming from the overflow was disconnected from the radiator neck. I put a new clamp on it and drove it to work this morning, but it still started to get hot, but toward the end of the drive it got better. I know there was a lot of coolant in the reserve tank, so I think there was little in the radiator. I siphoned some out last night and put it into the radiator, but maybe not enough. The guys at the auto parts store said that it will suck it out of the tank after I shut the engine off. I will have to check later today to see if it has done that. I guess I will update once I check. If coolant seems okay, I might change the thermostat anyway, it's a $10 part. I'll update later!
