Car overheating

Posted this morning about an oil issue. Turns out it wasn't an oil issue but an overheating issue. As I bought the car used I have no manual. My car is a chevy aveo 06. I put coolant in a few days ago. Today car went to hot while driving to work. Got home, let it cool and checked coolant, it was all gone. Proceeded to pour more coolant in & it immediately started gushing out from under the car somewhere in mid section of car. Any ideas what is going on?

    Sounds serious.. The warning light you mentioned before was likely an oil pressure warning. If all of your coolant was gone, and you drove it to work and back, it doesn't bode well for your engine.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    For anyone reading this, here's a link to chevrolet.com and the owner manual for 2006 Aveo.


    The problem definitely sounds like a leak. Hopefully a hose part. But there have been some leaks on similar engines from the water pump and some tubing related to them. Hopefully the engine has not been damaged. A quality mechanic can advise as to what needs repaired when the car is checked.
