2002 Mazda Tribute Question: Over heating?
Juat bought at car aution.Has a thumping noise coming from the hose.Overheats.Think it is a head gasket? If someone has put any of that headgasket sealer in the system, is it still ok to have the headgaskets replaced or did the sealer mess-up the rest of the cooling system passage ways in the engine? Please respond. Thank You. - needhelp53
sealer is a bad idea as it does cause blockages in the rad and heater core. replace the head gaskets, have the rad power flushed outside the vehicle and a flush after assembly of the rest of the susyem. Roy - mastertech6371
