Engine Cooling problem
1996 Mazda 626 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 90,000 miles
I've recently bought a car, I was informed it had overheating issues prior to sale and they never got around to trying to figure it out.
Im not sure how to check if its the water pump, but I am pretty sure its the thermostat seeing as it overheats while idle and while driving(within a mile), and the heat isnt working either.
I'm not what you would call mechanically inclined, I was curious what most shops generally charge on average for the replacement of a thermostat and at worse a water pump?
have the same problem?
