Can Idling Cause Over-Heating?
Since tonight was a very cold night, I went to go pick up a friend and me and my gf had both heated seats on, the rear defroster on, and the front defroster on high, and we had to wait there in idle for about 25-30 minutes, then the "check guages" light came on, and it overheated, with smoke pouring out, and the coolant boiling....
So, I guess my question, is, what is my best option?
1. Take the truck in to the shop immediately (it has a warranty)
2. Fill up lost coolant, take truck in Saturday (when I have more time)
3. Re-fill, dont worry about it, and dont let it see in idle that long again?
