Overheat and coolant loss

The Mrs. was driving (Phx 105F today) when her AC went warm, lost power steering, heard a “clunk” from the engine bay, and was just under redline on the temp gauge.

Luckily she had just turned into in a parking lot.

Tow truck is enroute.

I haven’t really even looked at it except for the gallons of coolant on the ground and an empty coolant bottle.

Thoughts?

...and as we pulled it on the tow truck - with the tail up and engine tilted down, more coolant just running off the crank pulley...

And it appears the entire engine is sagging toward the rear....

With almost no fan clearance. ?

Red was right on, as usual.

The old water pump gasket was a beast to get off.

#nocoolantleak

I am hoping the 3 minute overheat will not come back to haunt me.

Gonna cross my fingers for you Mike.

As you know, I wasn't so lucky and it was literally, the same amount of time - wife saw the needle shoot up to red and she turned right into a parking lot and immediately shut it down. *sighs* This was the one from last year that I still have not resolved.

Thanks.

Oddly, my temps today were the best I’ve seen: 80f outside temp, 190 idling for like 30 mins. 183-186 driving after idling for 30 mins.

Heck i am just always waiting for “it”.

But this is life we chose. 🙂

Glad it was a quick fix for you.
Hopefully with all that had been done on it the overheat didn’t effect it too much.
I think wives should be banned from driving discos😉
