My husband's truck overheated we took it into his regular mechanic and they did a "pressure" check and flushed the radiator, and said the radiator cap was bad. $350. Four weeks later, and it overheats again. Back into the same shop, and now they say it's the cylinder head gasket. This time $4200! But they claim the 2 instances of overheating are not related. I find that hard to believe. Is it possible? Or did they miss the real issue the first time? And is that why we now have to pay to have the head "resurfaced"? Because we drove it for four weeks believing that they had fixed the problem.
