156 JTD overheated - possible damage??
Friday I was on motorway on way home from work when I at some stage noticed the temp gauge of my '01 156 2.4 JTD was all they way to right and the red light on...
I pulled over asap and opened bonnet etc, noticed coolant was missing.. didn't really notice anything dropping from underneath car - managed with a few cool-down stops to limp to petrol station to get coolant filled up.
But I keep thinking I possibly made my way to work with same overheating engine - as I was v tired and didn't pay any attention.
Engine seems to run ok, but I'm thinking about dropping into garage for check..
how likely is it that something serious got damaged? I had service a few weeks back with new cam belt and water pump.
No problem since I topped up the water - coolant level is stable and temps are low as before.
I really hate that the temp gauge is in the middle console and not in direct view integrated in the main instruments.
