Default Over heating problem.

Well my car has 57,xxx miles and I just started to experience over heating problems. I was just driving then all of the sudden my temp went from normal to the middle of the H in about 2 seconds, and it started to smoke, fluids were everywhere. I filled it with water and all was good then I started it up and it ran fine and then when I tried to drive it, it slowly started to over heat. Fluids were still there and didn't come out again. When it idles it slowly creeps down back to normal, but once I take off it goes back up. So I pull over and let it cool down, then I drove some more. Every once in a while, it would hold for a good minute then FLY to H, thinking it is the thermostat, but not sure. Can someone help me out? First thing in the morning I am heading to SoD which is about 6 miles from where I live. Check engine light just popped on too.

First of all, I wouldn't continue to drive it, you might cause further damage, if you haven't already.

It might be a thermostat, or you might have a leak somewhere. Do you smell coolant?

I smell coolant, but that is from the first time it flew everywhere. Other than that, it is holding coolant and also still at the same level I put it at.

Another weird thing is my heater is blowing cold air, like blowing like the AC when the extra cooler thing is turned off.

Well I just got off the phone with my mechanic and he said it could be the thermostat or the water pump since my heater only blows cold air.

could have been worse. What you were describing almost sounded like and internal headgasket leak.

but just a rad hose is a good thing. Losing coolant means obviously the system is low. Warm coolant travels through the heater core which heats the air to the passanger compartment. Lose your coolant, lose your warm air.
