I bought this car brand new in 2002. It only has 76,000 miles on it. In November of 2013, the temp gauge climbed rapidly in a pharmacy drive thru that I had just pulled into. I turned it off, let it cool down for about 45 minutes, and then drove it on home, about 1 mile. Since then, the water pump, water pump belt, radiator, heater core, thermostat, sensors, alternator and battery have all been replaced. At one point, when the hoses were taken off, we found a little black piece of plastic (like the safety seal on a bottle) came out, and once a tiny, tiny black rubber ring, looked kind of like a gasket, came out. Bought a test kit for the head gasket, even though it had never showed any 'classic' signs of it being bad (white smoke, water from the tailpipe). The test was negative on the head gasket. The fluid level has never dropped at all. We marked it on the tank. There have been a few air bubbles come out, but nothing more than that. I am a single, disabled mom, and I desperately need my car back! I've been without a car now since November of 2013, and need my vehicle running again! Please help!
have the same problem?
