Reaction Mechanisms

If given reaction mechanisms, can you tell whether the reaction is exothermic? If so, how?

Please give an example of what you saw. Usually, reaction mechanisms are not used to judge if a reaction is endo or exothermic

If you know the spontaneity then you can possibly use the change in moles to assume the enthalpy. I don't think this would ever come up though
