Coolant leaking so mechanic changed intake manifold gasket.
While running the car to test it, it ran out of gas. They put more gas in, but it wouldn't turn over. So they replaced the fuel pump. Problem now is the temperature guage fluctuates and shoots up high within minutes of the car running. This was happening before I brought it to them and assumed it was due to the leak. They have replaced the thermostat too, but that isn't the issue. They have tested the temp of the car and it is normal, but the on-board computer is receiving readings that the car is overheating so it shuts down. Also, the RPM's jumps up to a bit over 2000 while in park or coming to a stop, but only every once in a while. Mechanic has had the car for 8 days and still has no clue what is causing the falty temp guage readings and the RPM issue.
