I recently had my head gaskets replaced, along with the timing belt, tensioners, and idlers; spark plugs; water pump; fan belts; front main seal; and AC idler. This was very expensive (2600.00) and my mechanic charged me 20% more than his original quote. Five days after I got my car back it started smoking under the hood while I was driving. It would rev up, but only go about 5 miles an hour. I trucked it back to my house with smoke still pouring out, and then transmission fluid gushed all over my driveway. Any advice on what to do here?

Get back to the mechanic. He should be responsible for this.
