Ok I took my car to my normal mechanics and got brakes, lights and some other stuff done plus a service. Added up to about $900 worth of work on the 13th of June.
I did notice the other week that the temperature gauge seemed to always be super high since I got my car back from the mechanics â€“ when it normally sits on half, however when I turned on the heater only cool air came out.
I meant to call my mechanic to ask them about this last week. But didnâ€™t get onto it.
Anyway after driving out to Sylvia park last night and back it craps out. Just stops all electrics go off and I roll to a halt. When trying to start it sounded like a battery issue. But there is a bit of smokey stuff coming out from under the bonnet. I was in a real bad stopping spot, and after like 5mins I managed to get it started and drove to a safer spot like maybe 500m away.
I think its poked â€“ i.e that bad tapping noise and smoke coming out.
Do I have any grounds to stand on that the mechanic needs to fix my car at little or no cost, because it seems to me that they may have made a boo boo while doing my service? I know that this is also some potentially really expensive work.
