I have been told the chevy van I have has an unusual coolant system in how it interacts with the engine. I can tell the radiator is shot but I have thrown so much money at the situation, I do not trust anyone to replace it. I want to do it myself to make sure nothing else gets broken. I even asked why they did not put another new thermostat in as it could have come from the factory bad. Then they said the gages we just sending erroneous messages but they could not fix that. I have been to the dealer, Big O Tires (they showed me the bad radiator but never fixed it though they said they did) and Sundance in Lakewood, CO. Sundance was going to replace the radiator but then said they saw a puff of black smoke when they went out to put it in the shop and advised a new engine. Now I am scared to take it to them for the radiator for fear they will break something else.
have the same problem?
