Engine Cooling problem
2005 Dodge Ram V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 89000 miles
brought our truck into shop for basic oil change/fluid check etc. Was running fine before. Picked truck up shop said we had slight leak in water pump, told them they had replaced it 4 months earlier. They said it would be fine to drive and to bring it back in 2 days. Drove truck next day it overheated. Towed it to shop and they said we needed a new engine(valve and lifter prob)quoted us 5600 dollars. Didnt give us any option and said overheating did not cause us this problem. Took it to a second mechanic who did tests and said it is probably a valve problem and will have to take apart engine to tell for sure. Need help what do you think? Very desperate to get advice.
have the same problem?
