Question about 1991 Chevrolet Camaro
My 1991 camaro RS is overheating. all coolant STREAMS from underneath car between motor & transmission. just had my car repaired (ha!) for $1100.00--$287 for new parts & $815 for labor!! the radiator was flushed, replaced radiator cap & upper & lower radiator hoses, spark plugs & wires &1 freeze plug on side of motor. electric cooling fan no longer works, tachometer on longer works, catalytic converter "gutted out", a/c only blows warm air & heater only blows cool air & coolant streams out from underneath car as soon as you fill radiator, car runs rough & occasional blue smoke from exhaust pipe when car is started. could this be from bad freeze plugs, blown head gasket, thermostat? please i need your help! so called mechanic says the leak is a new problem but from nothing he repaired just 4 days ago!!
Flushing the cooling system has its drawbacks. I you needed one freeze plug, you can reasonably suspect the others are surely right close to failure.In this case, starting to fail one at a rime weakest first. Now, as far as the other issues are concerned. What is the question? Sounds like the tazmanian devil had too much time on hand. I don't know the qualifications or integrity of your mechanic, but I do know a reputable, as well asa professional mechanic is not likely to intentionally or even bother to, contribute to these describe issues. Ocassional blue smoke is an internal problem, The AC is an issue in itself, The caalyctic converter is an issue that is too messy, smrlly thing to deal with. Any evisence of how and of what it was gutted? What was repaired or listed as repaired on your invoice? And what state are you in? It appears you may be seeking legal advice and in this forum it would not be an appropriate place to seek it. You may want to refer this to an Attorney for assistance.. Good luck and I hope you reach some resolve on this matter.

Replace the thermostat first. when engine cool check engine oil if it look like milk shake. you got a blown head gasket.
