Replaced the radiator cap. The car ran fine last night again. We will be taking off the ground wires that connect to the transmission and clean the bolt and all the ground wires so we get a good connection.
The cap may have been the cause of the overheat that blew up the old engine. But when it blew the temperature gauge read normal operating level. While I was watching it boil over and hearing the spun baring. I know that my son pushed it to far but he only knows to watch the gauge.
I will let you know after we get the ground wires clean and run it for a while. Thanks for all your help. I was a bit crazy and frustrated yesterday and needed someone else to bang heads with. This site is great, I really appreciate the help.
