Re: Overheating/coolant issue

It may be a simple fix for a mechanic. It could be the little gasket thingy between the raw water and fresh water at the black of the heat exchanger.

A mechanic will pull it out and unbolt the front and back and push out the fresh water tube pack... Checking the little verticals gasket at the back, cleaning all and putting it back on. If its a big problem it's a recon job or a new one which is not cheap.

It's a full hour for a good mechanic to pull it off. A tad quicker to reinstall. But estimate 2 hours off and on.
