Hello Jay, I didn't mean any thing negative about mechs, it's just that from the ones I've taken my car to, once they make a diagnosis, they won't change their minds. I guess they know about fixing the car more than I do since this is their occupation and I don't really blame them. This is the same situation with doctors, teachers e.t.c, most people don't like second opinions especially from someone outside their field.
Of course this does not apply to all mechs.
Good idea, i'll keep my eye on the coolant level and temp gauge and see what happens. Thanks
