i would imagine that the engine wont be totalled by such a short incident;
check if radiator sealant will seal the leak-that cost me around 3quid when mine was leaking- which is cheaper but obviously not as safe as a new rad.

yes the only part i dont joke about is radiator - if it leaks replace it right away - coz you don't wanna know what happens to your engine when its really hot!

i got a good radiator for 100$ - while Dealer quoted almost $300 boo! [:-]

That is one of the most graphic pictures i have ever seen. Such Carnage. Well best of luck with fixin it. Whenever i look for any part for my car, i check everywhere else, then the dealer. Try a junkyard, if you find nothing good there, try ebay, then and only as a last resort would i tell you to check a dealer; becuase they will charge you a arm leg and a ********.

My only advice is to have your engine compression checked and to keep a good eye on the oil. Worst case is cracked head and or warped head which could end up putting water into the crankcase oil. The best case is it didn't go that far and you got lucky or just a blown headgasket which is still bad but less expensive to fix. Hope it didn't as it starts to get costly. But a leason learned I guess on knowing of a problem and not fixing it right away can wack ya in the wallet.
