Q: 96 Cougar began to over heat Mechanic says head gasket it has roughly 73000 mile on 1996 Mercury Cougar

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
with only 73000 miles roughly this problem just began to occur but the car does not throw out any white smoke from tail pipe. Could this be a waterpump?

If a mechanic checked your car out and said it needs a head gasket it will be hard for any of us here to argue with that!!
Mileage is not the only factor. The vehicle is 16 years old and age plays a factor in gasket condition as well.
