Legal advice

I had misfire on my van, my mechanic fixed it. The problem came back on my way from work so i stopped at shop, he checked it, said its ok to drive it home and bring it back. On my way home it started to smoke badly, most likely blown head gasket. He says he will not repair it, resp. I will have to pay for additional repair, i paid $2k on first repair. He is good guy, but i feel he gave me wrong advice. I am being ah?

You can try to sue him. The problem will be he will swear in court he never told you to drive home. Do you have any witnesses?

What was worked on the first time? Anything to do with what is the current problem?

You'll need another certified mechanic to verify that he knew or should have known that it was unsafe to drive any further, and/or what he worked on first caused, or was related to, the current damage.

Even then, it's a crap shoot in court.

Unless you have pretty good evidence that the above is true, then you may be better off trying to work out a deal with him, depending on how much you could trust him to work on it further.
