Well, I spoke to the owner of the shop. I reminded him of what his website says, if they can't fix your car you don't pay and that they have the expertise to fix it right the first time and all proper repairs have a one year warranty. I guess that is a joke because I would not have called twice and brought it back four times if my car would have been fixed right the first time.
He said it was fixed, that coolant was leaking out the engine on the ground from the seam of the intake gasket and into the oil. That he didn't need to do a compression test the first time because he could tell it was fine. The final time I took it in he did a compression test, he could hear the engine was missing, changed the spark plug on the #2 cylinder, it was fine for a few minutes, but when he bled the air out of the line then it started missing again and white smoke was coming out of the tail pipe. I feel if it was just the intake gasket to begin with that when I picked my car up the first time I would not still been having pverheating problems? What do you think? Am I being unreasonable? He said the third time I dropped it off he could not duplicate the provblem but when I picked it up that very evening I was still having the problem.
