Transmission Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Based on what you are stating,
Based on your statement "Transmission hose replaced, and REPAIR THE FITTING at the radiator", this sounds to me like they did not 'repair' the fitting properly, if at all. Or, worse yet, they damaged the fitting when they replaced the trans hose, thusly causing the need for a replacement radiator. I would think you have a valid case against them that they caused the need for the radiator replacement. If there was ANY QUESTION that the fitting was suspect after the 'repair', it should have been clearly noted on the repair order that if the fitting leaks, a replacement radiator will be required. This is done to protect them form having to absorb the costs in a situation exactly like this. My opinion i sthey owe you the radiator replacement money.
The power steering pump is a separate issue. Assuming the belt is not slipping, replacement of the pump is highly likely.
