Hi, I have been having a similar problem with my garage. My own mechanic was too busy so I went to my local garage to get an alternator fitted, when I got the car back, my temp gauge was not working, I brought it back and they said my temp sender switch was broke, mine is located beside my alternator, which the mechanic admidts he must of broken when he fitted the alternator. They charged me for a new switch and labour. I drove to work but temp gauge still not working. Brought it back again, they told me thermostat had blew. They now want to charge me a fortune for themostat replacement. I think I have been totally ripped off and that these problems were all caused by a bad mechanic in the first place. I refused to pay for the thermostat replacement just about an hour ago. I have been back to the garage about 10 times in the last week, they have cost me a lot of time since I first went there.
