Engine Cooling problem
2001 Chrysler 300 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 117, 60 miles
I had a little bout of road rage the other day. Gunned the engine and overheated the car. I was about 3-5 minutes from my home when it happened so being the "typical woman" that I am. Kept driving. I let it sit for a day, but got impatient at the bus stop this morning and thought, "maybe nothing's wrong. Maybe I can drive it to work just for today." Needless to say, I got about a mile or so from my house and it began to overheat again. I watched the temperature gauge closely and pulled over as soon as it started to rise quickly. When I got out to listen to the car, I heard a faint knocking sound. Something unfamiliar, but I knew it wasn't good. I plan on towing it back to my home today as the repairs can't be done until next week sometime. What do you think I've done? : ( I'm traveling next month and an unexpected (and pricey) car repair is not the ideal situation. I know it's my fault anyway. I should be more patient on the road (and in life). Hope this doesn't turn into one of those "expensive lessons". Thanks.
