    I had my radiator flushed at LubePros and they broke the over flow tank. Its were the small hose attaches, they said it breaks all the time. I got home and did a temp fix. My question is does this happen a lot? They told me it happens a lot... It gets hot and my Taco is black so they break more. I think its BS. I just wanted to get some input before I go back.

    It’s BS. back them fix it! I have never ever heard of this. My uncle was a mechanic for many years now co owns a paving company.

    also only thing that really damages plastic is UV light and not the heat it self as much. If it’s under the hood it should not be getting UV light unless the hood is open.

    That's what I was thinking when they told me. I have been trying to step back and think first.
    Thanks, never seen this before.

    They are required to undertake their work in a professional manner. They broke it, so didn't perform the work in a professional manner...ie did not have the skills and knowledge to perform the work without damage.
    They own it.
    Call dealer and gat parts price. Offer to do the repair or let them repair it for parts price only. Failing that have dealer fixt it, or you, and present the bill
    Fail to pay the bill, small claims court ... Which for a small item like this..easier to eat the bill
    Then it'd be a matter of public disgrace for the shop with better business bureau complaint .. Add in paper. Whatever you think will be effective.

    I went late in the day and the manager was not in. I see him around town. They used to have good people but I have been living up north for the last two years.
    Thanks again I just wanted some input before I go back.
