1998 Acura RL, 150k miles, 6cl.
Recently we had our battery and oil changed at valvoline and the next day our car over heated and split a hose. We replaced the hose at a local repair shop, but two days later the car was overheating again. After letting it cool a bit, we started the car only to have it stall out immediately. We took it to the dealership and they found a hole in the new battery that had been replaced by valvoline. The dealer checked for any additional damage and returned the car. On the way home from the dealership, the car overheated once again. They said it had no fluid, we need a new radiator, and they need to check the engine for severe damage. How did getting a new battery lead to all this trouble? Is the repair shop responsible for letting us drive a car they said was fixed? What happened? Please help. : ( Lovelee
