I will tell you know- I don't know anything about cars including what a coolant fan is or radiator fans. Please help. Yesterday, engine light went on and needle went all the way to red hot zone. Driving about 10 miles on major highwat, 75 mph. Quickly got off. Coolant full. Asked gas station guy what to do- he looked & said belts etc all running, maybe drive it around awhile & see if it stops. ( I was on a commute to work). I took some side roads & it flipped hot and normal- no rhyme or reason. Nervous wreck. Drove it back home half hour- took to meineke- they said water pump @ timing belt, and my coolant was empty- but it wasn't 10 min. Before I got there. They said $850.00. Took it back to dealer- they had it for 2 hours& showed me they had put in a new water pump etc whe n I bought it 1 year ago. They didn't see a leak. They put in a new thermostat and if that didn't do it - radiator fans or something- and to take it to mechanic. (No warranty). Car fine today, but drove home from work and it ran hot hot then normal. Couldn't discern pattern w/ highway driving, sideroads, air on- really didn't know what I was doing with air. Got it home on hot. Stopped every 5 miles and it would go back to normal for 10 miles. What can I do? What might this be? I don't have $$ for repair this week. Freaking out big time. Help! Thank-you Susan S.
