I was on a long trip back home for leave. On the way my car was acting like the alternator went out (lights dimmed, slight loss of power). I exited on the next available exit. Once I opened the hood I realized that I my serpentine belt had broke, so I had lost my alternator AND my water pump, which made my engine overheat. It was hot enough that it blew a hole in my coolant resevoir. Once I replaced my belt and coolant resevoir I attempted to start the car, it started but was VERY rough. I noticed coolant bubbling from bolts on the head. I was told some vehicles have plugs that will give when the engine overheats as a safety for the engine. I am clueless as to what is wrong. Any Ideas? Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
have the same problem?
