Okay, i just took my 2005 kia sorento (6 cylinder, automatic transmission, 4wd) in to a local mechanic 2 weeks ago because my airconditioner had quit cooling, the shop install a new condensor and coil (I think thats what they called it... spending $1200) After picking it up my wife & I started noticing a smell. I thought it smelled like antifreeze, but the car did not appear to be leaking. long story short, the car started overheating yesterday. I popped the hood and discovered that the small hose connecting to the top left of the radiator was not just disconnected but the location it was supposed to connect had been broken off. apparently since getting the car back from the shop, and the car would warm up, this hose was emitting a fine mist of coolant all over the motor (thus the smell, but no drip). I took the car back to the shop asserting that since they broke it they fix it. the lead mechanic told me that this hose was not necessary and plugged it, and put a screw into where it connects to the radiator to plug it (the mechanic stated that the line from the resorvoir splits before connecting back to the radiator and thus having this connection was not necessary) does this sound right? I dont' want to be causing some kind of damage to my car, over something caused by the shop. any advice appreciated!
