Rodney went above and beyond working on our 1993 Buick LeSabre. The auto had a start run briefly then stop and would not restart. Rodney replaced the suspected (code 18) part crankshaft positioning sensor, the crank pulley. Auto does not even start now. There could be other potential issues as is the case with the early mid 90's GM autos. There could be other suspected other parts and issues here. Though I do believe that your mechanic should send someone to further investigate this problem at no charge, after all the car did start now it does not!

All about Radiator Replacement

The radiator performs a critical function; it keeps the engine from overheating. While running, the engine produces heat. Coolant flowing through the system absorbs and removes extra heat from the engine. The coolant then passes through the radiator where it cools off and is later circulated back to the engine to absorb heat again. A radiator has two tanks that are connected to each other through aluminum or brass tubes. When the coolant passes through these tubes, the radiator cooling fan blows air across the radiator to lower the temperature of the coolant. The tank is usually made of plastic, and it is common for it to crack and start leaking coolant. If the tank or the tubes crack, coolant will leak , the vehicle will overheat and could cause severe engine damage. Radiators also tend to clog over time. When this occurs, not enough coolant flows through the radiator leading to heat build-up, causing the engine to overheat.
