So my car started to over heat today pretty bad. At first the top part of the hose to the radiator popped off and the radiator sprayed anti freeze over the engine. (that sucked) I thought it was a bad clamp. Turns out its not. The top hose was burning hot while the bottom hose was cold...and nothing was getting pumped out of my coolant resavoir. Long story short I am pretty sure I narrowed it down to be the thermostat.
To verify to get to the thermostat i have to take off the bottom radiator hose and its there in the block correct?
Also has any one done this and can give any feed back and advice would be greatly appriciated
I replaced the thermostat and its still doing the same thing. Any suggestions on what to check or where to go from here. If its something I can do this weekend would like to other wise i will have it towed to the shop on monday
