    Hi Greg
    it all depends how far you drove without coolant,did you notice temp guage when you stopped,was the engine boiling when you stopped,

    sounds like u might have caught it in time. if there was water coming out u might be ok. if there was nothing but steam steam and more steam you're probably screwed...

    good luck!

    Hi again Greg it sounds as though you may have caught it in time if coolant was still running and temp guage showing 85,fingers crossed it's just a hose replace,sounds to me like you are one lucky man
