My 2002 Ford Explorer was running hot.

Asked by Oct 20, 2015 at 03:02 PM about the 2002 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I put antifreeze in it and after lending it to a friend for the weekend, it smoked
and died in my driveway when it was returned. I added more antifreeze when
it cooled and it started the next day. Went fine for a couple of miles then
gauge went hot in a matter of seconds and it started to smoke again. Taking it
to mechanic tonight but need input on how expensive it will be to fix.

All depends on what he finds, thermostat=cheap, head or head gasket= expensive.
