I had a mechanic replace my coolant resvoir about 2 months ago he said it was cracked
Since then my coolant level check light has gone on and off.
Now 3 days ago my temp gauge went to hot and the car spew coolant from the bottom.
I went and got coolant put it in a whole jug of it! That fixed the problem temporarily
Yesterday I noticed smoke coming from the grill and the temp gauge was back at hot. So I decided to turn on the heat to try cooling the engine, but the heat did not come on.
Later that day the heat worked again. And the temp gauge was normal
Now the bad part, today the gauge went to hot, the car started driving rough, and it started to die. I dont know much about engines but I think it the pistons were making noises like they were struggling to move.
Any guesses, did the mechanic mess something up when he replaced the resevoir. THe car is sitting until it can get looked at, something I should of did yesterday!
