I have a 2000 Chevy Cavalier 2.2L which was recently diagnosed as having a cracked cylinder head as the reason for a bad misfire. From the mechanic's own words, radiator fluid had been leaking into the cylinder, but my radiator fluid levels are fine, there's none of the typical smell of antifreeze after driving the car, and it hasn't had any engine temp problems in a while, despite driving around with the misfire for over a month or so now. They already charged me $700 for electrical work that they first 'diagnosed' as the problem. Could this be the real reason, or is my mechanic just trying to bilk me out of even more money?
have the same problem?
