I used head gasket sealant to try to fix a head gasket. Upon taking it to the shop I was told I had used too much and had clogged the engine. They suggested I replace the engine rather than just the head gasket. I could only afford head gasket and water pump, so those were replaced and the cooling system flushed. The car was returned to me and the first day it overheated going up the mountainous road to my home. I replaced the radiator and the shop said I blew the brand new gasket that had less than 75 miles. Can a brand new head gasket blow that easily, and is the shop responsible for replacing it if it did blow a second time?
Can you please forward this fix info to me as well
I understand a shop should charge a diagnostic fee if they are NOT given the job. Should there be one when they are given the repair job?
always rises with or without AC on and does not cool down ... have to pull over or sometimes turning off AC helps temporarily.

I'm not sure what's going on but my check engine light came on now my friends aren't working
Ran fine one day, wouldn't start at all the next day
After I was parked on hill and car in reverse, it wouldn't shift into first. I turned off the engine, shifted some and turned it back on, then as I as driving, it wouldn't shift into any gears and then stopped. I've noticed the clutch felt loose today and yesterday. What's the matter with it? Its a manual transmission.
I have a new battery, antifreeze is full, and the hoses are not frozen. it tries to start but it won't turn over. No clicking sound.
engine warn stop for about 20to30 minutes come back start cranks for a long time then will start spurter give full throttle then will smooth out
Replacing engine, replacement engine does not have plug. car is manual trans. replacement was automatic (I think). Don't want to remove pulleys if I don't have to.
