Don't drive it until the cooling system gets checked out real close. If it overheats too badly, it can cost you an engine.

If the coolant level is full and it's still overheating without any leaks, then the thermostat can be causing this to happen. If the coolant is leaking out, get that fixed right away.

Thanks, Ron
