I took it back to the dealer and after several days of analysis, he is telling me that the real cause is that the engine coolant is leaking and hence the engine is over heating and shutting off. This explanation just doesn t make sense in my non-expert mind.
The dealer wants to fix the leak and charge me $600 for this and is willing to guarantee me that if this does not fix the problem, he will fix the problem free of cost after that.
Does anyone think the dealer is talking sense?
Also, the heating in my car has not been working properly for a while. For atleast over a year or two. The blower runs but hot air takes a very long time to circulate. The dealer seems to think the coolant leak problem is related to this as the coolant circulates and acts as a heating element and since the leak, hot air does not blow? I have been taking my car of regular oil changes and so on and no one ever pointed out the coolant leak before
Someone please help really running out of ideas?
