I brought my car in for a oil change yesterday, was told upon 23 point inspection that there is a small leak of coolant and that I should probably get it fixed as eventually it would cause me to have problems with the radiator. They replaced thermostat and thermostat housing yesterday, $270. This morning it was leaking something all over the ground when started. Took it back in and they said my radiator was completely blown. He showed me the top where there are seams (or looked like to me) and said that's where the fluid was coming from. So anyways it cost me another $470. I guess I am trying to find out if it was something they possibly did to cause this. I guess my thinking was I fixed a problem I wasn't even aware of so this wouldn't happen "down the road" and it still happened, and a day later. The mechanic told me it was b/c the leak was causing low air pressure and once the problem was fixed the return to normal air pressure did it.
have the same problem?
