    The temp. on your car was either 360 or it was not 360. It was not "like" 360.

    Now that we have that out of the way, what is your question?

    The Valley girl "like" generation. They have no clue.

    Stuck thermostat maybe, get 'er fixed. The pump may leak at some point but it will never fail overnight.

    The other problem may be the electric radiator fans not operating properly at all or with the A/C running.

    The electric fans test on startup and run for a few seconds after startup, listen for them when you start.

    If you have a belt driven fan, the fan clutch may be bad and not engaging power through to the fan blade.

    Gee, that's too bad. So what is your question exactly? We cannot help you if you don't make it clear what you want to now. Also, I assume you meant the gauge read 260 since that is as high as it goes. Overheating an engine and continuing to drive it is a good way to ruin it and make the repairs even more expensive.
