2006 200 Etec with 3 cylinders gone bad after 176 Hrs.

My name is Tony and I loved my etec, but  would like to know why a engine would over heat  being serviced at  168 hrs.with a new water  pump . Motor was peeing great  before new pump and afterwards. You would think  I'd get more hrs than that. Oh no buzzers or alarms went off. Thanks Tony.

You should be posting this service question in the E-TEC section, not here in the Guidelines and help section.

 

If there was no warning lights or buzzer, how do you know that the motor overheated?

Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
