I'm in the Air Force and have been on TDY to Wichita Falls, TX since June, the base I live at is only 4-5 hours away from home so I visited home before I left, and left my car with my parents so it didn't just sit all year around, and my Mom's Corvette is getting the front suspension rebuilt so she needed something to drive.. Anyways, last week my dad realized my Anti-Freeze was getting really low and he topped it off, the next day my Mom called him and said an "Overheating" light came on in the DIC so she pulled over and slowly got it home. Dad said that the Anti-Freeze cap was loose and since its pressurized it just spewed everywhere.. So that's why that happened But.. What we're not sure on is why it burned all the that anti-freeze so fast before that happend up? I know it was full before I left.. My only concern is when I plasti-dipped my front bumper if I accidently got some overspray on the radiator? and now it's overheating. The only thing is, I drove it around all spring till June with the Plasti-Dip on and it never overheated then, and my mom's been driving it since.
He said he was going to drive around some more today to see if it burned off more Anti-Freeze that quickly, and if it does he's going to take to my dealer to get it looked at. I'm just scared there going to see that Plasti-Dip overspray on there and get pissed and charge me for a brand new radiator when it could be peeled off..
