at 16,500 sounds more like the vehicle would still be under manufacturer warranty.
I would follow that up.
However sounds like you have some coolant issues, and probably alot of clogged coolant galleries in both the engine block and radiator.
if you mix two types of radiator coolant (the wrong two) they will for a gelatinous mess and cause issues like this. Pretty sure its ethylene glycol and propylene glycol types (for aluminum and for steel radiators)
there could be alot of causes for this, but that's the first that springs to mind for me.Powered By : ESSAY
