If you have had your vehicle repaired recently by a mechanic shop and have had problems afterwards that are related to the previous repair, it is very likely that the future repair should be covered under warranty by the facility that performed the original repair. I would recommend consulting with the mechanic who originally did the repairs to see if any of the issues you are having are related to the original repair. If so, they should repair the vehicle free of charge if they have any integrity. If you have any further issues with this vehicle, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to inspect your vehicle for cooling system issues.
