    LOL most of you are going to laugh but since I don't know nada, an answer with something of help would be great.

    So I drove the '94 accord over a median, not once, but twice! YEAH I KNOW WHAT WAS I THINKING? Anyways, its been two days. Didn't drive that car for a whole day. Could it be this whack weather (too hot, humid, muggy) or could it be that I drove over the median a bit too fast, approx., 30 mph. Could it affect it at all?

    My BF drove it to work and just made it to the gate and it was smoking.

    If you damaged the radiator, then the coolant flow could be blocked or severely restricted. A radiator - like the internet - is a series of tubes.

    If this is the case you will need a new radiator. And don't drive the car. Overheating can warp the cylinder head, and then you are in a world of hurt (might be already).

    While it was cold, did you check the fluid level? You could have a broken hose. Did you use 50/50 anti-freeze or did you use tap water?
