Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

148,755

Does the overheating have any correlation with highway, 65mph driving and stop-and-go traffic? Mileage? And has it ever had a water pump changed? What does the coolant look like? Dark red? I know, full of questions but that information will help me try to figure this out
