Engine Cooling problem
2005 Buick Rendezvous 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 36,000 miles
I drove my car 1 mile and car overheated. Had oil maintenance 2 weeks prior at dealership. In bad part of town, could not stop, so turned on heater, engine cooled down. Took car to dealership, they said not warranty work, just needed to get radiator flushed. Radiator had muddy looking stuff in it. Took car back 1 week later because it did not seem right. They said it had a cracked head gasket, kept it for a week. When I picked up, paper said it was running normal. Took back 1 week later because antifreeze was low. They added antifreeze and said it was probably because air in lines. I've been checking daily, I added antifreeze a couple of times, and have been watching it. Last night drove 1 mile to destination and smoke was coming from under hood. It looked like antifreeze was spraying out. Of course dealership maintenance was closed for week end. Any ideas of how I should handle this?
