Hi all, twas new years eve wen we were in a rush to sydney in the afternoon until my radiator blew up on the first hill out of bathurst. Luckily we were able to nurse the falcon back home after waiting for it to cool down n filling up with water every 5kms. Come a wk after after ordering a pwr aluminium radiator the car kicks over but doesnt appear to want to start in any way. Is there a limp mode or something if it thinks its still hot? Its a beloved ef xr6
