On the way home last night from a three hour drive, I noticed a strange smell emanating from my Jeep. The thermostat has always been steady at 210. It rose to 220. When I got home, I popped the hood and it was boiling over, there was no coolant, and the radiator hose was shoot. I replaced that and added anti freeze. Now it's even worse. On the ten minute trip to work this morning, it over heated, went past 220, and the check gages light came on. Any suggestions? If it's not the thermostat, what else could it be and what kind of money should this cost me?

Thanks in advance!

Not sure exactly what your situation entails, but the water pump could have seized up on you. If it gets hot really fast then the thermostat is stuck shut or the water pump is tits-up....

Good luck with it
