My 2002 Ford Explorer was running hot.

Asked by Oct 20, 2015 at 03:02 PM about the 2002 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I put antifreeze in it and after lending it to a friend for the weekend, it smoked
and died in my driveway when it was returned. I added more antifreeze when
it cooled and it started the next day. Went fine for a couple of miles then
gauge went hot in a matter of seconds and it started to smoke again. Taking it
to mechanic tonight but need input on how expensive it will be to fix.
