Well I live with my ste dad and my mom.... MY real dad knows everything about cars so he drove 1 hour down here and looked at the problem....
The coolant "expansion tank" was cracked so we went to discount auto parts and my dad bought a expoxy and glued the damn thing shut. also he put a wire arount the tank and with pliers force the seal TIGHT. then we ducked taped the mother f#$@er.
Any ways this saved me about 200 dollars because I was able to drive home.... We added just 100% distilled water because when the thing boiled over all of the coolant spued out.
Now my car is in MY garage and tonight I am going to buy the following....
Water Pump - may not be related but WTF
My dad says he can install all of these.....
The tank he took apart in like two minutes is their a DIY for termostat and water pump and if any one has done this do you have any pointers????
ALSO im am going to buy ALL of these parts from Car Parts Go .com
they seem to have really good prices and the pictures look correct.
My dad has never owned a car worth more than 3000$ but he knows what hes doing
