Mazda mpv won’t start
My partner filled our water up, where the
coolant goes, but forgot to put the
pressurised lid back on and we drove a fair
distance. She eventually overheated and cut
out. She won’t start, I’m wondering if there is
any point in me trying to fix her up or should I
just abandon it?
If the MPV is in good shape, it's gotta be worth $3,000. The overheating problem could have just caused the car to immobilize itself. In this last ditch (no pun implied) effort, fill the coolant and put of the radiator cap. Then remove the positive battery cable for a minute or so. Replace the cable and you should be able to get going. Then have a mechanic look over the car. It might be that nothing is actually wrong with the car.
