I have a 1992 Ford Tempo with 62,000 miles. It is leaking antifreeze from somewhere and runs "hot" This started overnight. Actually I had the fuel pump replaced and the day I brought the car home I noticed the leak. (I think the mechanic might have actually created the leak because it was never there before) The mechanic then said it was not cost effective to fix but he wouldn't give me an estimate. He then tried to sell me a new car. He told me the leak was between the engine and the transmission and he would have to remove either one or the other to fix the problem and the cost of removing either to fix the leak would end up costing me more than the car is worth. I can't afford a new car so I am on the bus or walking with my kids one of which is only 3 weeks old. Clearly I know nothing about cars so I need to know if I am being hoodwinked.
have the same problem?
