Re: Is my 147 not long for this world?
As DC says, it shouldn't be losing coolant, you need to find out if they skimmed the head or not, but they have had the head off and that means a few pipelines were disturbed too, there are so many possible places for it to leak but at worst it needs the head skimming or water pump replacing, at best it's a loose hose clamp or even the expansion tank cap. The garage that did the work is responsible for giving you the car back in perfect running condition, plus ask if the big ends were changed, for a grand they may not have been, but they SHOULD have.
