Default Acura V-6 overheating..

My 95" Legend blew a hose yesterday and lost most of the coolant before I
even realized it. The car had never reached that temperature in its life
and occurred on the only day in my life when I honestly did not glance once
at the temperature gauge. I let my guard down unfortunately and may have
paid a high price for doing so.

After letting it cool down entirely, I filled it with water and started it
up. It seems to run fine but needs the leak fixed obviously. The oil is
clean and has no water in it, and I'm looking for folks with past experience
on these cars getting hot and what I can expect whether it be a new engine,
cracked head/block or???????????

Any help is appreciated. When e-mailing me please remove "nospam" from my
e-mail address.

There is a real good chance that no serious damage was done. Get the leak
fixed and just watch is closely for a while for additional leaks, oil in the
water, water in the oil, etc. If nothing shows up in a couple of weeks, you
are probably home free.

My 89 Legend had a hose blow in December in Milwaukee. I had the hose
replaced and all was the same as before. It was weird, though: I thought I
had blown a hose the day before I actually lost the hose, and 20 miles of
driving.
