Car started losing power, spotted the heat meter pretty high. Pulled over.
Opened hood....smoke.... Not too much,but the "smells bad" smoke type. Slight bubbling around head gasket and rocker gasket. Slight oil loss and few drips under car. Waited 1-1.5hrs to let it cool. Opened radiator.....empty. filled in 1L of water that I had in the car. Let engine cool off way down. Tried to start car. Took quite a while (close to giving up). Pumped the gas a few times and it jumped on with a rough and low idle.... rolled in 2nd 1km to gas station. Filled up radiator full. No drips. Drove home.
Got home, checked rocker filler cap. Slightly melted inside from the heat. Car drove perfectly after I refilled radiator...idle back to normal.
My questions: should I be concerned? What can go wrong? What did go wrong (maybe someone has experience)?
I know I screwed up. It hurts enough to see Milo in that shape...
