Q: overheating

asked by on

My car was running. I was standing outside the car. I heard a pop noise and then it started smoking from the hood. Before i turned the car off i saw the gauge was running hot. I let the car cool off. I put water in it and gauge went back to cool. I drove it hot and it started over heating again.. What is the problem ?

My car has 152000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
