Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer
It should be either the thermostat or the water pump.The water pump will sometimes allow you to go about 25-30 miles before it overheats.The thermostat would likely be the cause if once the temperature guage starts going up,it kind of just keeps going and overheats.You need to avoid driving and overheating as much as possible due to very bad engine damage.Hopefully you have a second car.You can call a couple shops,they normally will give you a free opinion,just describe it with as much information as you can to get an accurate one.Also you can get free estimates unless you plan to self-repair.Good luck!
