Yes it started running hot and made a crazy noise so cut off

If i get mechanic to put back on my old parts will it start then..bc it was fine until he put the water pump on & thermostat was just leaking coolant on the belt..making a squeling noise fm antifreeze leaking on the serpentine me plz


The mechanic won't install the old parts, probably threw then out already. You have another issue, such as air in the system, another leak, etc. Have the mechanic recheck his work.

Took it to meinke & they said it was my motor. Is it worth putting a new motor in it 175k miles ...get it rebuilt or remanufactured 1?? Which is better??
