Overheating is usually a simple problem for a competent mechanic to find and repair. It is usally one of a couple problems: Thermostat, blocked radiator, water pump, temperature "riser" or the timing is waaaay off. The car wouldn't be running very well if it's the timing, so I doubt that one. One way to determine if the problem is the thermostat, remove the thermostat and see if the vehicle runs cold. With the thermostat removed and the engine running, remove the radiator cap and see if the water is flowing rapidly through the radiator. If not, you either have a partially blocked radiator or a damaged waterpump. The temperature "riser" is a mechanism that allows exhaust gasses to flow across a passage through the intake manifold to pre-warm the air being drawn into the engine and to cause quicker "warm-up". If the temperature riser is stuck in the open position, you could need an intake manifold, but that's quite rare. In any case, a good mechanic should be able to find the problem through responsible diagnostic methods. Incompetent mechanics just replace parts until the problem goes away.
If the usual problems don't reveal the prolem have your mechanic check the intake manifold. These engines have a tendency to loosen the bolts on the intake manifold and the leak will damge the gasket. In time it will get worse.
big coincidence.there is no reason that replacing an alternator would cause an inlet manifold to leak.unless one of the mounting bolts goes into the manifold,and the mechanic screwed wrong bolt,(a long one),into wrong place and thru the manifold,causing the leak. i know of this problem because it is how i learned,years ago to note which bolts went where
Take it to Mechanic!
you go to a mechanic
go see a mechanic
take it to a mechanic
Take it to a certified mechanic and pay him $300.
You go to a mechanic.
In order to stop the car from overheating, your going to have to find the underlying cause. If you do not have expertise in this area, you will have to find someone who does. Maybe a friend or a mechanic. I would recommend you do this immediately. Extreme overheating can damage the engine.
it's complicated,you need a professional mechanic
go to a mechanic if you need to ask
To remove the intake manifold on a 2004 Mitsubishi endeavor, you should take it to a mechanic. An authorized dealer will also fix it for you.
The engine is overheating - see a mechanic for a professional diagnosis .
Wrong alternator or new alternator is bad. no resetting needed
I just had my alternator replaced (at a shop). They told me the mechanic had to "rip the entire front end off" to get to it.
Estimate from the Dealer was $850, my mechanic charged me $500. Half cost of remanufactured alternator and the other half is for installation.
sounds like you use a bad mechanic a good mechanic would replace a cracked exhaust manifold to start with if you can smell gas,there is obvioulsy a leak in the fuel system. this needs to be found as it is a fire hazard
Take it to a mechanic. Have them check for leaks.
i have a 92 explorer and I'm a mechanic.... u have an overheating problem.... do you see any leaks?
Only if you're a trained alternator tech or very experienced mechanic. Your best bet is to purchase a new, high amp alternator.
The Delco alternator is an electromechanical device that converts mechanic energy into electrical energy. Most alternators are used for rotating magnetic fields with a stationary armature.
It could be an alternator. Check with a mechanic if that is the issue.
Only if the mechanic is abusive and does not follow proper procedure
parts and labor it should run you about $300 and change. Replace the drvive belts too.
The same thing happened to my 1995 Tercel. I guessed that it was the Alternator. To test if it was, I disconnected the battery while the car was on, and it instantly turned off, which confirms that indeed the alternator is dead. My mechanic also confirmed it. I bought a new one for $95, and once the mechanic changed it, the lights turned off. The same thing happened to my 1995 Tercel. I guessed that it was the Alternator.
