My cars engine overheated and I took it to a Honda dealer, he said the crossover tube was leaking and charged me $600 to fix, also fixed a broken temperature gauge, dealer later said there is a head gasket issue too, shopped around and had the head gasket fixed for $1200 from local dealer. Other mechanic broke the temperature gauge and I then installed an external gauge. This gauge shows temperature between 210 F - 230 F, took the car back to local mechanic. He now says that there may be a crack in the engine and I will need the engine replaced.
Car runs fine and I am not loosing any power, what could be the problem? Is the mechanic right?
have the same problem?
