COOLANT

2006 Pontiac Torrent

Smells problem
2006 Pontiac Torrent 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 37800 miles

I went to get my oil changed a few days ago and they told me my coolant is bubbling. I was told my the dealer. Who I purchased the care from, it is covered by the warranty. Well I purchased this vechile on Feb 5 my warranty expired March 4. He told me I was covered for 100K miles.

I went to another dealer and they said they would have to do a dianogitic test that would cost almost $100 to determine the problem.

I also had to get a new battery a few days ago because the battery just went dead all of sudden.

Can you tell me possibllty what is wrong with my car?

If the coolant is bubbling it could be a blown head gasket, or air in the coolant sys. Both will make the coolant bubble. You need to diagnose it first. You might want to go back to the dealer and ask for any goodwill assistance, they might help.
