over heating

first of I'm a vol fire fighter and I use my POV to respond to calls last night I was onscene of a fire I left my 1998 CVPI running (idle) no a/c on and it started to over heat the check engine light came on I added more water to the fill bottle but it was still steaming after it had cooled and restarted I replaced the intake manifold in 2002 shortly after I bought the car the steam seems to be comming from the front of the car near the front clip any and all suggestions will be helpful

Re: over heating

At least you were on scene to put any fires out in your car!

Are your electric thermo cooling fans on the radiator working OK?

Did it have sufficient water? Any leaks? (hoses/radiator sides.....are yours plastic?)

Re: over heating

Cool. Good job your wife or girlfriend wasn't driving, otherwise it would have been blown head gaskits and cracked heads too
