My minivan is overheating. The temperature gauge shoots to the red zone within two to three minutes of driving and the engine starts to stall. I checked the coolant reservoir, it is filled up, but the coolant is brownish in color with rusty particles. This issue surfaced about a week back, so, I took the van to a car mechanic. He fixed a couple of leaks in the cooling system, flushed the cooling system and also installed a new water pump and a thermostat. The mechanic tested it fine and I drove it fine for a week. But, now, a week later the exact same issue has resurfaced with the exact same symptoms. I am not sure if the mechanic diagnosed the problem correctly in the first place. So, before I get ripped off again, I need some advice regarding what is the likely cause of this overheating problem? Thanks in advance.
have the same problem?
