My car showed no signs of overheating then it shot to red and shut off. I left vehicle at shop asked to be told the issues. I was told it was cracked radiator and needed replacing. I said if that is the problem fix it. So when I picked up the vehicle I was told hey you need to have your transmission looked at I had to put eight quarts in. So transmission shop within five minutes said transmission done. The previous mechanic said it was urgent, but acted as if he had no clue what the problem was. And on top of it all the car continues to get hot after radiator and thermostat replaced. So I have two questions, 1. Would a leaking transmission fluid cause radiator crack or vice versa? And isn't a mechanic required to inform you before repairing all issues detected?
have the same problem?
