Car overheated. A radiator hose had a small hole and leaked. Replaced hose and coolant and took car for test drive. Car did well, no overheating. Returned home put car in park it had a rough idel. A few hrs later attempted to start car it wouldn't start but it. Was turning over. Checked oil no coolant in the oil noted. All spark plugs have spark(white) cleaned spark plugs. Removed coil pack and cleaned / dryed seem damp. Car continues to not start and now all of the gauges max out when trying to start the car

JUST FOR GIGGLES, DISCONNECT THE BATTERY WAIT 10 MINUTES, THEN RECONNECT IT....THIS MAY RESET THE COMPUTER

IF THIS IS A NO GO SITUATION

REMOVE BATTERY FROM VEHICLE HAVE IT TESTED AT A POPULAR AUTO PARTS STORE, USUALLY THIS IS A FREE SERVICE.

ONLY INSTALL A FULLY CHARGED OR NEW BATTERY......DON'T CHARGE IT WHILE CONNECTED TO THE CAR!

THE COMPUTER MAY BE SORTA "HUNG" ON A LOW VOLTAGE READING, THE ONLY WAY FOR IT TO RESET IS WITH A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY, AND THE CABLES COMPLETELY OFF...........JUMP STARTING WILL NOT CUT IT!

........IF YOU NEED A BATTERY...OR ANYTHING ELSE

READ THIS LINK--- THE "METHOD" MAY AID YOU ANYWAY, IF ADVANCE AUTO PARTS IS NOT A LOCAL STORE OF YOURS.........AND "A124" WORKED FOR ME YESTERDAY!
