 Description of the problemI was driving on the highway with a posted speed limit of 70 mph with my family on a road trip. The check engine light came on and said engine is overheatted and power is reduced. When i tried to press down on the gas, the car would not go faster. Traffic was a bit heavy and i was going 70 mph with traffic behind me. It was nerve wrecking to slow down (because the car isn't producing any power because the engine is overheatted) due to physics and needing to pull over to the side of a busy highway. When i took the car to the mechanic, they told me the water pump has failed. My car only has 55k miles on it.
