Engine Cooling problem
2002 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 39,655 miles
My car overheated several times about a year and a half ago.
Since then I have hardly driven it because I have never had the funds to take it and find the reason.
I do drive it to the doctor one time a month which is about 8 miles away.
I also drive it once a week to a meeting I have which is about 2 miles.
It has not overheated since 1 and 1/2 years ago but
I have a light coming on that has an arrow pointing to fluid, the light is red and does not have any writing.
I took it to one person who gave me a free reading and he told me tha someone had put antifreeze in the car and it did not take antifreeze. He said it takes DEX-COOL.
HE said that was the problem and when the person put antifreeze in the car it mixed with the DEX-COOL and turned to pure sludge.
That is what it looks like when you look into the water tank, thick muddy stuff.
I took it to another person yesterday and they told me it was the Intake Gasket.
I need help so badly. I am a woman who is disabled and am having a very hard time getting by financially.
Could you please help me?
I feel like because I am a woman and alone that these people in this small town are taking advantage of me.
Any help you could give would be so very much appreciated.
