Vapor Lock

We are 718 miles from Rawlins to go pickup the van and we are having vehicle problems. We are driving on the shoulder right now in between 24 and 42 miles per hour. It's running really hot and stuttering bad especially on the uphill. My guess is vaporlock. I can't believe it, we are so close to getting our van back tomorrow.

We have now overheated to the point where we had to pull off the highway. Of course we ended up on an exit with no services! I'm going to let the motor cool down and check the radiator coolant level.

When we lost a belt and had it fixed at Pep Boys the heater core sprang a leak. We've been dealing with that issue and now this which is all connected.
