    bleed the radiator often (you pretty much won't have a choice), no long drives, and try not to get stuck in traffic

    10 bucks, but about $1,000 to have it done. Could be a dozen things though. Check if the oil level is up or has water in it.

    Check the cooter valve and muffler bearing also.
