ok, heres the whole story. i took my car in for power steering leak in one of the hoses, and they ended up replacing the radiator, supposedly it had a crack at the bottom of it, and it was leaking water, so they did that gave the car back and thats when all started, before this i never not one problem with cranking up my car everything was fine but that power steering fluid leak, but now is leaking water, power steering, and it wont start what can be the problem i tried taking it back but they refuse to take it and fix it. and i dont know how to prove that they messed up my car. i dont have any receipts or anything like that. because they had worked on other vehicles of mine and never had any problems with them so they had earned m,y trust but now i dont know what the deal is? but anyways i need my car fix and i dont know what the problem is?
well, if the rad cracked, it came from overheating. if that is the case, you may have internal issues with the motor. that would not be there fault. the car overheated on you. take it to another shop and have them evaluate it and give you a bid.
