Any help appreciated please...
My son has just broken down in Schaumburg, IL and if anyone knows of a good mechanic there it would be a big help. I'm a thousand miles away and about all I can do is have it towed to a shop. I've done a lot of work to his car this summer and I'm very familiar with it.
He overheated his '94 legacy 2.2L and I'm guessing it's either the thermostat, busted hose, water pump failed, or head gasket failure. I gonna have him check for bubbles in the overflow once he gets off the highway.
Thanks in advance for any ideas!!!

Just to follow up, these guys were great, reasonable on price, and super-nice to my son and my wife's "help" long distance.
It's nice to find a good shop!
