So my water pump has been on the fritz and I am waiting for the new one. But unfortunately my girlfriend has been in and out of the hospital. I don't like taking my other cars on long trips. But i have no good reason. So I jumped in the 318 and went up to where she lives. It's only 250 miles. This morning I went to run a few errands while I was here and I went to put coolant in the car today and I was distracted by something while doing it. Well i was driving and the temp needle shot up. I freaked out because I don't have time to wait for the part to show up here. I have to leave tommorow night.
Luckily, while distracted, my dumbass forgot to put the radiator cap on. And that is all the problem was.
