Hi all.. first of all, excuse my English..
Since last week, my car was overheating. This happened to me once and the water temp warning light came on and I just stopped the car right away.. It turned to be one of the fuses in top of the battery, a green 30amp one.. Since then, it has been perfect, but sometimes, the fuses blow and melt, and the plastic around it too, so I was just changing them. The last week, the fuse wont fit more in the plastic, so I had today to make sort of an external fuse holder, a cable that connects to one of the metal plate, and just cut the wire that is in the connector of top of battery fuse holder, it worked perfectly, but today, on a hill climb, the car started to loose power, and the dash started to go off.. so I pulled my car of the road, and turned it off, and I had a big cloud of white smoke coming of the hood. When I opened and inspected what happened, it turned out that the hose that comes from the radiator to the engine, was broke, blown, and the thermostat was broken to.. I was keeping an eye all the time on the water temp, and it never went up, this just happened suddenly. What would be the cause of this? A faulty thermostat? I'm thinking that the thermostat was damaged and it didn't manage to open and the water just stuck and blow the hose off.. Any help would be appreciated!
