i guess nobody really gave a sh$%! fyi it was the coolant reservoir, $525.00 parts and labor.

Chage the water pipe, it often gives this problem and let the anti freeze drain...

This was quite bad which happens to you. Unfortunately you have to do what you have stated in your thread you have to tow your vehicle down to the dealer.
