I have a 96 Ford Taurs 85,000 miles bought it used about a year ago. It always ran a little hot, but never had any problems with it overheating. Well, my mom used it once and it overheated on her on the freeway. She doesn't remember if she shut if off or if it shut off on her. She had it towed back to her house. My Dad replaced all the fluids, checked the oil, etc... Now, it won't start. There are no visible leaks and there is no fluid lost. A local mechanic said it could be the heater core but couldn't say for sure without looking at it. He said to replace the heater core would be about $800. And he can't guarantee that the car will work after that. Is it the Heater core? Wouldn't there have been water in my car if it was the heater core? What else could it be? Should I replace the heater?
have the same problem?
