2003 Hyundai Elantra Thermostat housing problem
So my 2003 Hyundai elantra thermostat broke, got stuck closed, my car then overheated, 0kay buy a new thermostat no problem. When installed new thermostat a bolt corner piece from the thermostat housing corner broke off. Can this be repaired by a jb weld? I no nothing really about car repair, had a friend of a friend install new thermostat, when the corner bolt broke he said it could be welded to fix it and would be no problem, now the guy has not returned to do this and won't answer my phone calls. Would a cold jb weld work for this? And should I try doing it myself or what? I am a single mom just getting by on my waitress income and cannot afford to bring my car to a shop? Anyone have any advice or tips for this issues?
