Thank you so much for such a quick response. I have a 2002 6cyl Mazada Millenia base series. The recent work was the fuel pump, timing belt, water pump, two hoses that I can not at this moment remember. But the top radiator hose was replaced, the bottom was checked and deemed not a problem. They did replace the radiator cap due to the inability to create that built pressure to check the system. I also have had the radiator and transmission flushed.
Since all this work was fairly recent, I took it back, they did a free diagnostic and discovered that the coolant bypass hose was split. The mechanic told me it would be $400.00 for the part and labor. I just want to know if it is as easy as releasing the clamps and replacing the old with the new? Is it located on top or bottom? I am on a fixed income, the $4900.00 wiped out my savings and just got done paying all my first of the month expenses.
Any advise or step-by-step instructions would be greatly appreciated. I cannot thank you enough ;0)
have the same problem?
