Engine Mechanical problem
2003 Honda Element Manual 112, 00 miles
My Honda Element started to overheat and the Thermostat was replaced at a dealership repair shop I was unfamiliar with. The next week the air conditioner stopped working, and when I turned the air off, I heard a loud grinding sound. So I took it to the dealership I bought the car from. They replaced the coil and clutch. Within 24 hours the problem had returned. I was told the compressor is to blame and needs to be replaced. The dealership is replacing the second coil and clutch for free. My question is the thermostat repair in anyway responsible for the compressor going out? Can I expect any other domino problems to occur?
