So I've got a problem. Aside from being somewhat car-dumb.
Yesterday I was goin' to the range and it started to click and smoke a bit. So I pulled into an auto parts store close by and the people there said the thermostat might just be stuck open.
Today I went to get the radiator system serviced hoping that was just it and the Jiffy Lube guy said that the water pump could be going out and there was a clog in the radiator hose.
Once I left there it drove good for about 20 minutes then it clicked loudly and then die on me in traffic and smoke will come out of the hood. It'll start up again a few seconds later and go for a while and die again...
