I took my car in to have an oil change at one of those "quick stop" places. Three days later, and it may be a coincidence, my car started making chirping noises. (Just FYI, not sure when it stopped but my odometer now reads the same as it did when the oil change was done.) My mechanic replaced the fuel filter, serpentine belt, back brakes and rotors for $615 (and wants $500 more for the speedometer cluster.) When I drove the car home and turned on the A/C, it sounded odd. Then, it sounded like the fan kept running when I turned the ignition off. The next day the car started overheating while sitting still/idle. My husband checked it for leaks and said that there was a hose (overflow hose of some sort?) That was not connected. He reconnected it and it didn't overheat anymore but the fans don't seem to be running at all now. I am assuming I need to replace the clutch fan. How can I check to see if that is the problem? Is there anything else I should consider? Could this be related to the replacement of the serpentine belt or any other work I had done it?
have the same problem?
