Ok, we'll start from the beginning. I saw smoke coming out from under the hood so I opened the hood. There was coolant passing out a very small pen hole in the top right corner of my radiator. I bought a repair kit specially designed for my problem applied it exactly as it said. I waited more then the time stated, and filled the radiator back up. It seemed to be able to hold water and pressure without leaking.
I then drove 10 miles and stopped, however when I stopped, the truck just died, and wouldn't start back up. I opened the hood, and everything was totally dry. Even my patch spot. The entire exterior of the radiator was dry, and it even had fluid in overflow clear tank. However, when I opened the radiator cap and looked inside, it was bone dry! There was no liquid in the radiator at all. I filled it up again, but the truck won't start. It shakes and runs what little I can get out of it.
Any help suggestions pointers or info would be a blessing, as this is our only family vehicle which my family relies on more then anything. I'm a fresh home navy veteran and I'm trying to adjust back into daily living, and in need of little guidance to fix this problem so I can be the husband, father, and provider that I need to be.
Thank you for your time.
