Re: R.E: Rising Temperature...
A bit early to be consigning the car to the scapyard!
As Pascs says, you need to find out where the water is leaking from, and fix that problem. Chances are it's a split or loose hose, but a friends car split the seam at the bottom of the radiator once, could be that. Once you've got the leak fixed and the coolant re-filled, your car's fine.
And if all the water is piddling out the bottom of the car, it's not too surprising that it's running hot!
