Ok guys have a question for you. I was driving on the freeway and noticed my check engine came on. Then noticed that my water temp was pegged. I pulled over immediately and noticed steam. I popped the hood and noticed coolant all over the place. The radiator cap was not hot so I figured I blew a hose. I popped the cap and no coolant. So after letting it cool down for a bit a added some water and it started steaming. I put the radiator cap on and noticed steam coming from the engine ( it appeared to be from the engine) Couldn't really tell. After starting the car there was no smoke coming from the exhaust so I dont think i blew a head gasket. What do you think?
After getting towed home, I jumped the 2 pin connector and got flashes( 6 - ECT Sensor (Engine Coolant Temperature). Now could a faulty sensor cause the ecu to do something and make it over heat, or did the sensor go bad from the over heating?
Anyone ever have a problem like this? Could a thermostat be the problem? Thanks for any help.
