So if the head gasket work was done and then a week and a half later the car overheats again and then they tell us it needs a replacement engine could the gasket work have then caused this to happen (ie machine shop work or how they put it back together?) Did they not apply due diligence in the diagnosis of the problem?
ALSO is it better to get a "junk yard" replacement engine or a "japanese" used engine? Both would have mileage under 60K.
Thanks so much.
