Default Possibly stranded in UT any peeps?

Hi guys

Having some cooling issues outside of salt lake, any peeps in the area? Just put some stop leak in gonna see if it helps so we can make it back to CO. Will check back here when I'm back in wifi zone. Think it might be head gasket.

Don't lock the rad cap down tight, keep it kinda lose so it won't build up normal pressure! Carry lots of water and keep checking the water level, that's what I did not do on my Toyota a long time ago and over heated the motor!
Good luck

I'm in NV so your going the wrong way from me.

Thanks for the replies guys

I made it to price UT now. Got a room, gonna take a better look in the am when I can see better and let the car cool down. Got a bunch of tools with me thank goodness, auto parts store up the road too. Hopefully I can put a band aid on a head wound to get home, then I can get it in my shop and figure out what the problem is.

I'll report back.

So what exactly is happening to it? Overheating? Missing? Stalling?

Never over heated but got REAL hot almost to the point of overheating. I stopped and cooled down before it got there.

Just got home guys-

With Mater intact. WAY burnt from the drive and all the "drama" of having problems and the fact it was in UT where I can't get any real beer! At home having one (or 2 or 3). Film at 11 or 12.

Glad you made it! No beer really? Never thought about that but I guess it makes sense...guess I'm never going there!
