My 98 Ford, Contour with 144,000+ miles has been running abnormally hot lately. I brought it in for a checkup and they found nothing wrong. Said the computer was not reading as hot as the gage in the car.
The head gasket leak test was perfect, no leakage at all. The thermostat also checked out OK. If the water pump was getting tired you'ld think they would have told me.
I don't know what to think. If you think it is the water pump could you give me a ball park figure on how much it should cost to replace it?
Thank you for your time and consideration
have the same problem?
