Hello SSR owners. I need your help with a problem that I caused while using my husband's SSR (yes--he let's me drive the SSR but maybe that will stop now Ugh!). And, yes, I am using his SSRFanatic.com account to reach out to all of you with this problem that is weighing on my mind and heart. So, the details.... The SSR is a 2005 model year with larger V8 engine and automatic transmission. It is a low mileage SSR (we drive it only on drive pavement and when sun is shining with no chance of snow or rain -- yes, my OCD husband babies it a lot!). Anyway, two days ago, I drove the SSR to a restaurant to pick up two pies for a forthcoming birthday party. As it was very cold outside (-2F --> yes we live up north BUT there was no snow on ground and the SSR would not get wet or dirty -- a no-no with my OCD husband Ha!), I left the SSR idling with heater on (fan setting of 3) while I went into the restaurant. It took time to get these freshly-made pies (plus I visited with some friends having coffee -- a mistake, I know!). I kept an eye on the SSR (thinking it could be broken into and stolen) while visiting/waiting, and things were fine for first 30 minutes or so. Suddenly, I noticed that fluid was dripping out of engine onto the pavement (it was indeed coolant coming from the overflow(???) tube that is on the white coolant tank on passenger's side of the engine compartment) plus steam was coming out too (I could see steam and i could hear hissing/sizzling sound coming from engine. I opened up the driver's side door and saw that the temp gauge was at 260. I panicked and shut off the engine and removed the key. I waited for the steam to subside (and hissing sound to stop). I then opened up the hood and left the SSR sit in cold winter air for about 20 minutes or so. I then started the SSR (it sounded fine and there were no lights or sounds coming from engine) and drove it our home (about 1/4 mile from restaurant). I watched the temp gauge and it started out at 100, and rose to less than 200 by the time I got home). I then turned off SSR and left it in garage and it has not moved for two days. So, I am wondering if you could provide some guidance on what I should do to repair or take care of the SSR. Have I ruined/damaged the engine when it overheated and coolant flowed out and steam appeared? Should I have SSR towed the Chevrolet dealer and have them check for any damages (and what do I tell them to look for???)? Should I have the Chevrolet dealer do a radiator flush and refill and check coolant system? Should the dealer replace any hoses or caps or valves or seals on coolant system? Is the engine oil OK (I think my husband has it filled with Mobil 1 oil, and he did so about 100 miles ago (it is a low mileage SSR -- only 8,000 miles total to date) based upon the oil change sticker. Any assistance and help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!! and If you live close enough to me, I am happy to bring you pies to thank you for responding to my plea for help! God bless all of you SSR Fanatics!
