Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Subaru Forester 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 128, 00 miles
Id like to know if a major tune up was done on my car, would any indictions of head gasket problem have been detected at this time?
I brought my car in for a major tune up as it was due technically. My mechanic, at the time, told me none was needed but went on tell me axles, rotors, brakes were needed.$1500 worth. Three months later Im having trouble and bring it into another guy. This guy replaces air and fuel filters, trans filter, tran pan gasket, spark plugs and wires. Shouldnt have these things been done or have shown as needed to be done a couple of months earlier at my other mechanic?
I ask because as these problems added up, I ended up with coolant problems, an oil leak and then all of sudden, my car overheats and my head gasket is blown. Could this have been prevented in any way if the original mechanic would have done a major tune up?
have the same problem?
