I have a 2008 ford edge. It had no issues until last week. Driving home it started to run hot and then started running rough and stopped running. It sat for an hour while the tow truck was on its way. I could not tell where the leak was and pour in a gallon of water which ran out slowly from somewhere at the front of the engine. It was able to start and drive onto the tow truck. It went to the shop, the guy told me it needed a water pump but because it was a Ford Edge and buried behind the timing belts, he did not have time to work on it and suggested a Ford Dealer. I had it towed to the dealer and explained it to the service adviser. The guy I explained it to wasn't the same adviser who took it in. The guy who took it in called me and said they drove it to see what was wrong, so I told him the whole story again, he then called and said I need a new engine. So, my question is, the first mechanics said they did not see water in the oil, now the dealer says there is. Can I get away with just having the water pump changed with its gaskets and change the oil and use the car for 10000 more miles or is the engine shot like the dealer says?
have the same problem?
