I had the engine replaced in my 2009 toyota sienna van about 3 weeks ago. The work came with a 6 month warranty.
A few days after I got it back some lights came on VSC and the check engine light I believe. I took it back and they adjusted something. And I was all good until a few days ago when the AC started cutting out, engine temp gauge would go crazy, and all sorts of lights would pop up.
I took a look under the hood and the engine coolant container was bone dry. I filled it up with 50/50 coolant. I was taking it back to the garage the next morning and the it started to get real “choppy” with acceleration and I barely made it to the shop.
Fast forward to today and the guy calls me and tells me that they’re replacing the radiator since it had a “hole” in it and that the alternator had to be rebuilt entirely. I’m no mechanic but it’s suspicious that I’ve never had an alternator or radiator problem before his guys replaced my engine. I paid $4K bucks for the replacement and now he wants another $600.
Am I getting taken for a ride or is this just bad luck?
