I had my son take his car to De Re Tire and Auto in New Lenox to get an oil change and to have the car inspected in anticipation of a long road trip. The inspection was to include a coolant pressure test. They told us that the radiator was leaking at the drain valve so the radiator needed to be replaced, and that the hoses were original and should be replaced also. Total estimate, $1000. I contacted a car dealer maintenance shop for his brand of vehicle to ask about the leak at the drain valve. They said if it was leaking, it was probably an O-ring on the drain valve. This part is a few dollars. It is also made so it can be easily be pulled out and checked/replaced. I asked the manager at the De Re in New Lenox why he didn't check the O-ring before saying we needed a new radiator. His reply was that if he checked it and it broke, then I would expect him to cover the replacement of the radiator. Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, we took the car over to Superior Auto in New Lenox to get another opinion. The mechanic there did a pressure test and found NO leaks on the coolant system. He checked the radiator hoses and said they were fine and didn't need to be replaced. He even pulled out the drain valve on the radiator to check the O-ring and said it was also fine. What he did say was that the transmission fluid was low enough that it didn't show up on the dipstick. De Re tried to sell my son a $1000 repair he didn't need, and missed the transmission fluid level being low, which should have been caught on the inspection. My son made his 1300 mile road trip without any mechanical issues with the car.
