Car began steaming from radiator cap & fan. Immediately dropped car off at mechanic. After a week of diagnosis informed today that my gasket blew & fluid was leaking into radiator. Stated cost would be a whopping $2,600! I came on forum for some verification. Although I trust my mechanic in the past, would I have warning signs my gasket blew? I had no overheating minus recently, I was going through a lot of motor oil and coolant.
