I need some advice I'm broke and I need the car (like it's not an option) it hasn't overheated yet .
This just happened about a week ago, I'm driving way slower like 50/60kmh and 70/90kmh when in downhill but in neutral.
I'm doing my very best to only use the car for the utmost necessary, dropping picking daughter to school then daycare then back home.
It's rainy season in my country and the little one just came out from a bronquitis episode so yeah exposure to water is not an option.
I know pouring my life drama won't fix the car, but I really need someone to break it down cold to me, like I'm really ucked up, or there could be a silver lining that would allow me to still use it a little, while I whre around or do something to get the money to fix it.
Update prior posting: my wife just called saying she feels a burning scent (no smoke or anything visible, no over heating visible through the gauge)
Please see below the way the tank looks. FYI after the picture was taken I "squeezed" one ioff the hoases attached to the radiator and coolant went back over the coolant reservoir and "cleaned" whatever polish fecal looking matter there was, so it's a really thin layer.
I refilled the coolant to compensate the overflowned coolant.
