My car overheated, and it shattered the coolant elbow.
The plastic coolant elbows on this vehicle are a very common failure point. An aftermarket solution includes aluminum replacements. In the event of overheating, these elbows, as well as the engine thermostat, must be replaced, and the rest of the system tested for signs of weakness or a failure. Have a trained mechanic, such as one here at YourMechanic, run an inspection on your overheating issue, and address all related concerns. Your vehicle will not have to be moved, as our mechanics come to you.
