no coolant left
I was driving my 87 toyota van and the engine light came on a couple times
over a 3 week period. I drove it over the weekend and when I stopped I heard some
gurgling, like boiling. I let it cool checked the water in the radiator, there seemed to be none.
I went to a auto parts store, got coolant put a little in radiator with water and some in the
extra drain bottle with water. I drove home about six miles it was empty of water again or took alot to fill it.
The heat thermostat on the dash never went in the red zone( but it was headed there)even when I heard boiling or gurgling. I did smell that hot smell. What do you think I looking at in repairs (money and what's wrong) as I never know if the mechanics are telling me the truth.
Thank you, Margaret
