I was almost home when it did this so I drove it the final extra mile. Well I'm assumming the thermostat is stuck shut until I pop the hood and discover that my radiator has no water in it. So now i'm either thinking that my water pump is out or I have no clue what it is. All I know is for the past month or so my pulleys have been making a weird noise so i'm assumming it'* the pump
You drove it "the final" mile all right.
That temp gauge is not like your boost gauge.
Hopefully you didn't fry something.
Water pumps either work or they fail by loosing a bearing or seal.
Belts make noise if they have been cooked. Change them first to rule this out.
I don't know how the engine detects low coolant level. Where is the sensor?....or is there some sort of algorithm....
More importantly, where did all your coolant go? Better check your crankcase.
