Brought car to shop. Was overheating slighty, leaking coolant intermittently for 3months. We kept topping it off. Prior to that had heater issues for a year where it would heat sometimes, and blow cold air at others. Shop said waterpump was leaking, radiator was leaking, and they replaced. Replaced timing belt because it was old. Day after out of the shop, car overheats into the red zone, and we pull over and leaking coolant all over the ground. Opened the radiator and it was almost full, the overflow still had some fluid. We alsofound that the fan and the coolant overflow tank were jiggling and loose, never being reattached to the front of the car with, coolant all over the road, When we checked, both the radiator and the overflow were full.
Took it back to the shop and they said the head gasket had blown. Whose fault is this?Did the shop do something, did it just magically wear out the next day? Very upset with shop.
