Water coolant empty I drove a lot before noticing

Hi everyone,

After a week where I thought I had a power stering wheel leakage,
I just realized that I have a water coolant leakage...
I drove with the car for like 50 km like this!!!...

In my defense, the water coolant temp never exceeded 110 C.

Do you think I hurt something in the car?
Is it very bad to drive the car with no water coolant?
If there is no water coolant, the water coolant temp indicator is still accurate?

The car still behave the same no difference.

I'm bringing the car to the dealer tomorrow, we'll see, as for today I added some water to see if it leaks still.

Just because the bottle was empty (its the overflow reservoir) doesnt mean the radiator was. Judging by the temperature you mention there was definitely coolant in the radiator. I'm sure no harm was done.
