About 1 month ago, I had the timing belt replaced on my 2000 Mitsubishi Galant, as recommended by the manufacturer. The car seemed to be revving high, and after 2 trips back to the mechanic, things seemed normal. Two weeks have passed, and now the car is running very hot (temp. Gauge is very close to being in the red zone). The car was brought back in and the thermostat was changed and the radiator was flushed. The car was taken on the turnpike today and once again, the temperature was climbing near the red.
Water pump wasn't replaced with the timing belt.
The car was checked again by the mechanic over the weekend, and they say everything is fine. They had it out on the highway, and nothing happened, but they didn't ride it long enough. Today, the car was driven on the highway and it was nearing red after 1 hour of driving.
HELP! I feel like a pest bringing the car back again.
have the same problem?
