Thank you bigboy i will do that. my wife drove back home after work about a hour with no isssues what so ever. i told her to buy a new radiator cap and she topped off the radiator.
Maybe the thermostat got stuck??? the pass. floor wasent wet and theres no greesy residue. i get back from deployment in a few days. the car does have 180k miles and it does need a cooling system overhaul done.
