1994 Mazda 626 v6 185,000 miles. Took to Jiffy Lube, and when I left the core the car overheated immediately. I can only go a mile maybe before it starts overheating. I have no heat coming through the vents when I put the heater on high, even with the engine overheating. There is a bubbling sound in the Radiator cap to the right of the engine. There appears to be some radiator fluid leaking in that general area. I'm hoping it is just the thermostat, but I think that's wishful thinking. I was able to get it to another shop, who filled up my oil, brake, and radiator fluid (yes. Right after a $75 Jiffy lube job). They had apparently just drained me dry, and left it that way. I've heard that it may be the heating coil, which seems to be bad (cost-wise). Any ideas? Is it worth trying to save?
