Wife drove trough desert with windows up and AC on FULL BLAST.
Car overheated and was towed home. Upon inspection,
Car was refilled with water with no leaking found; No Water found in Oil.
Transmission (or) PowerSteering Fluid found on exhaust manifold near Powersteering Resiour
but doesn't seem to be leaking. Car does not seem to be getting GAS (I think).
Will turn over but NO Start! If head gasket was blown wouldnt water leak from
somewhere and be found in the oil pan. Is there a fuel pump reset switch?
Do you have recomendation of what to check
Do you
have the same problem?

Thank You I was thinking along that line and will do as you say. Roughly hoe much does this tool cost at your local auto parts store?
