Today my mehran suddenly shut down after heating up and woudn't start, so I found a mechanic who said the water pump had bursted draining all the water from the radiator resulting in the overheating and shutdown. We poured water in the car and cooled it a bit to start it, but it started and then shut down again. Then we tried a dhaka start and the car still didn't start. Then he checked the spark plugs and said that they had melted due to excess heat and will need to be replaced to start the car. My older plugs were pretty old and I had no choice so replaced the 3 spark plugs with NGK 16 spark plugs and poured some more water in the radiator and the car started fine this time. I confirmed from him and he said there is nothing else wrong with the car.
My questions for the pros:
1) How much are genuine NGK 16 spark plugs??? He told me 200/plug and said they are 100% genuine and new, I paid him 550 for them and all his help total.
2) What exactly is the water pump and do you guys think this can burst like this???
3) How much is the genuine suzuki mehran water pump, the mechanic said it's 800-900 in the market.
4) Could this overheating may have caused some other damage???
Thanks in advance!
