Probably the exhaust.
#4 of 5 overheating issue
Nov 07, 2009 (1:57 pm)
I have a 04 V6 Mustang. A while back it started overheating. It is still under warranty. The dealership replaced the thermostat, tested it said it was fixed. I didn't even get 10 miles and it started to overheat. Took it back they said it was the sensor so that was replaced. I didn't really have a problem with it as I live very close to work (about 5 miles) until a few months later when I took it on the freeway to go about 35 miles. After about 20 - 25 miles I could smell coolant and sure enough it was overheating. I took it back to the dealership they kept it for 3 days and said it just never overheated on them. That if they could not recreate the problem they could not diagnose or fix. This occured again a month or two later. I even started taking pictures on my cell to show them the temp gage all the way over to the right. So I put up with this and then in the summer with the air on I only went 2 -3 miles and it again over heated. I took it back to have it looked at. They ended up replacing the sensor that tells the fan when to turn on which was not a warranty covered item. Now I can go a little further before it overheats but still think it should not have this issue at all. I am probably going to take the car elsewhere. Anyone else have similar issue? Suggestions?
