Car idling with AC on for about 20 minutes, coolant on the ground and beginning to overheating.

Asked by Jul 07, 2017 at 11:32 AM about the 2008 Ford F-150 FX4 SuperCrew

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Tried to get it home to look at and had to pull over because gauge went all the
way to Hot. Popped the hood and the reservoir was high and hissing steam
from the lid. No leaks anywhere else, assuming liquid had escaped through the
lid. Let it cool down and liquid to drain back down. Started up and drove home
and it was at normal the whole way. Left it alone all night and took it for drive
this morning with out incident.
