As I said earlier, I have shown the car to the radiator shop.
He did a basic check of thermostat and radiator. When I explained my problem, that the car overheats in 20mins after driving and is okay when I am driving on the freeways and also when I accelerate the car to higher rpm's, the heat gauge comes down.
His explanation was
" If a radiator is clogged, it will always be overheated and no matter what, the temp wont come down" " He checked thermostat with a electric gun which shows temp, he said it is fine"
Then comes his recommendation.
"I am not sure about this cars but I think it is the problem with water pump, as I said when I accelerate the car, the temperature goes down because of excess circulation while increasing rpm, which would bring down the temperature" He recommended couple of mechanics who work on only this cars, and said they would better know than himself.
But, before consulting other mechanics, I want to take your opinion on this problem, and whatever the radiator shop guy thinks makes sense.
Also, please let me know how much I am looking at to replace or repair a water pump.
Thanks again folks, awaiting for your response.
