My car overheated and repairman said that the radiator needed to be replaced, which they proceeded to do $550 for a Lumina 1998.
When I picked up the car I went to get gas and have the oil checked. The attendant said there was coolant in the oil.
The repairman was inconsiderate making it my fault, until the manager said he would put STP gas treatment (free) and do an oil change $30.
I am worried that there is a significantly worse scenario here that there was a leak and they didn't check on it and may lead to more serious matters, possibly my engine just failing.
What are the possiblities? Should they have checked the oil and engine when repairing the radiator? Because if the engine is destroyed it may not have been worth the investment in fixing the radiator. Is it not common procedure to check the engine and oil?
