I drive an 86 Accord with over 100,000 miles on it.
Yesterday I was driving on the highway and noticed that my car was getting extremely hot. It had problems overheating before, but usually only when idling, so this was really unusual.
I pulled over, and when I slowed down the car just absolutely died. It wouldn't start again at all, and white smoke was coming out of the engine area. I checked the oil and it seemed to be fine, but all of my water was gone.
I'm a young girl -- I know [i: 3f11d68058]nothing[/i: 3f11d68058] about cars. I'm really afraid of being swindled by mechanics, so I was hoping to get a good idea of what might be wrong before I took it in. Does anyone have any ideas?
