Have a 97 Dodge Intrepid that overheated for the first time over the weekend. I took it to a shop and got a run around. They did a pressure test and didn't find anything. The mechanic said he drove it and it did not over heat but then for some reason he added water to the radiator and then it overheated. I received a call from the mechanic and he "suggested" to change the water pump, belt, and thermostat. When ask if they all were bad or just recommended he could not answer me. He just said I suggest. Then I talked to the manager about what is going on. I received a call back saying my engine block is cracked and they found coolant in the engine. They gave me a quote to replace the engine. Does this make sense to anyone because I feel like I am getting Jacked?
