Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. Do you want to address the cooling system or the starting system? Are you willing to speak on the phone as this may be a bit more involved?

Your welcome. Where should we start?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
well 2 days ago was running ac it started overheating so pulled off and filled overflow jug.Did fine till yesterday morning.There wad antifreeze out of jug but radiator was bone dry.Let it cool added antifteeze to radiator.It would have to be jumped yo start would run but not rite.Checked oil no water no moisture from tail pipe,Cpuld a bad water pump cause this/
Expert:  Amedee replied 6 months ago.

YES, the water pump or anything else in the cooling system that may be leaking can cause this condition. Have you pressure checked the cooling system? If not, this is the next step. The system needs to be put under pressure to find out where it is leaking or where the coolant may have gone. The leak could be so slow that you may not have noticed the leak. It can dry up or evaporate before it hits the ground sp you wont see anything leaking. Chances are the coolant was low for some time before the engine started to overheat. Once you find the leak, the failed part or component will need to be replaced. Then the cooling system will need to be filled up and burped free of air pockets and you will be good to go!
