Could my car overheating be caused by the harmonic balancer being incorrectly replaced? Should I take it back to my mechanic for a second look?
My car has 120000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Most likely the harmonic balancer is not the reason for why the car is overheating. It is more likely something to do with the cooling fan or a part of the cooling system, such as the thermostat.
I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your home or office to check the cooling systemfor any malfunctioning that is leading to the overheating.
