I just got this car about a month ago. My first manual. Noticed recently for a couple days in a row while driving the temp would be topped out. I thought It was just the way I was shifting. Well after heading home the check engine light went off, flashed n stopped but still stayed on. Lost all power on parkway while stopped at light in fast lane. Merged over n car began smoking seemed pretty heavy at one point too. Checked fluids n noticed one we had missed prior to checking others, the coolant was completely empty. Left car sitting went n got coolant filled er up as well as a second check on oil. Left it sitting over night. In am the needle had finally dropped, tried getting to work with it, got off n well didn't make it very far. Left it there for a couple days n just this morning went to get her n maybe made it just short of 5 miles from my house before she began overheating again. Where I'm at is currently 38 degrees figured it wouldn't over heat.
Been told possibly thermostat?
Help idk where to go from here. Screw mechanics when it comes to being a female. They intentionally screw us over cause were made out to be car retarded. Dont feel like throwing my money away. But thanks for being not caring.
So please any info will be so much appreciated!
have the same problem?
