They are leaking and my brake goes way down when I try to stop..They quoted over $600 to fix the car..Is this about right???? Thanks
Also holds back starting out
Ongoing problem. Have had hoses, clamps and even radiator replaced and it is fine for a while and then starts leaking again. Will a head gasket or water pump cause these symptoms? Does not overheat.
