Thanks for replying so fast!
No repairs were done immediately before the problem. The car was fine. On the way home from a trip to the beach (about a 4 hour trip), the overheating light/signal came on. My husband noticed that there was no coolant in the car. We refilled the coolant (and kept refilling it). That's when we took it to our mechanic. He replaced the radiator and thermometer. Not sure about the cap. I'll ask. It's actually there now. We took it back. At first he thought it may be the water pump, but that appears to be working fine. He's still trying to figure out the problem.
Yes, the light/alarm come on after each startup. Usually after I've driven about one mile or so. After the sound and the light/alarm going off. It takes a little longer, but will eventually heat back up.
Let me know if you need more info. THANKS!
