2005 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 55,780 miles
I have recently just bought this car; 2 days afterward my car overheated & it also makes a bubbly noise after it gets turned off. I got it towed back 2 were I had bought it they said it is suppost to make that noise because of the AC (even though when I'm not using the AC it still make that same bubbly gurgle noise) & that the cap to the anti-freeze wasn't on tight enough. So they tightened it & I go the car back, about 2 months later I had started to notice the temperature gauge would spike up to hot fall back down & jump all over the place. It got all the way to hot a couple of times so I would stop for 40 minutes (still hearing the gurgle & bubbles) to try to let it cool down, but when I would start it back up again about 5-10 minutes later it would get hot again so I would speed to my next destination to let it cool longer. It would be fine one day hot the next, then it hot all the way to hot n was beeping in my face so I pulled over to the repair shop. Now they are telling me the head gasket is blown & it will cost me "a couple thousands of dollars." I know this is a rip off & I have a warranty, should I let them rip off my warranty dealer, could this have been prevented 2 days after I bought my car when I told them about the problem, do you think I'll have to pay any money out of my pocket, & is it my fault that this happened to my car because I drove it while it was hot? Its a SXT 2.0 L 4 CYL they said between V2 & V3 there was leakage and V1 & V4 had carbon build up that didn't match the mileage which is only 55,780.
have the same problem?
