I have a 1994 vet with LT1 @ 100,450 miles. I drove car to restaurant, everything was fine. When I came out, I found a puddle of antifreeze on the ground. I checked for blown hoses, but could not find any. I filled the car with water, and drove it home. The temp stayed between 194-201, normal range. When I got home, I left the car running, the temp stayed at 205. I turned on the air, temp stayed 205, fans were running. I turned off the a/c, fans shut off, car reached 227 and when I was going to turn car off, before I could get there, it died. I heard a leak, it was coming from line going into throtal body. I replace hose, filled with coolant, replaced caps, but the car still would not start. I unhooked the + side from the battery for 30 seconds hoping for a computer reset, but no luck. Is this a problem with coolant system, or could something else have went wrong?
Car never ran over 205 on the way home, and only reached 227 at an idel. Any help is appreciated.
have the same problem?
