Don't forget to max your heater. That can help stall the rise in temperature for a bit.

The reason this used to happen was older blocks were made of cast iron. In extreme cases overheating them and dumping water in them could crack them.

Most modern engines are alluminum and the heads usually warp before that point and the block and head need to be decked before being put back together.

Unless its a 22re........punish, put away wet. Repeat.

I pen style tire pressure gauge is always good to have too. The ones at the fill station at most gas stations are broken even if they have one.

Have water along with antifreeze. Even if the antifreeze is premix

Heck, you live in the desert so you should carry extra water anyway

Jeff - that New Yorker looked like a lot of fun. Those old mopars can take some abuse! I remember watching the faster farms lemons team roll their Plymouth at thunderhill once ... And after a little wrenching in the pits drove it home!

What I mean by hot engine is not an engine that is running at operating temperature, but an engine that is way above normal temps because there is no coolant.

My uncle cracked the block on my dad's dodge dart after he dumped water in it at a gas station because it was overheating.

Those tend to be a bit inaccurate, I like a dial one or a digital.
