Default Interesting yet frustrating issue. What do you guys think?

So several months ago my timing belt broke, just bad luck. Had to get my engine swapped. I begin to have on/off cooling issues, my mechanic tells me he can't find the leaks (after several fixes btw) and to just top it up, it could just be air bubbles. So basically he can't fix it. I keep topping it up, realize I have a leak and decide to take it to a shop which specializes in Audi.

TO make a long story short, my gasket got damaged due to the cooling issue and I have to dump $1800 again to fix this. Independent tells me today that several pipes were not installed properly leading to the cooling issues. What's my recourse here? Get my previous mechanic to come take a look and fix it on warranty? Can I even do anything at this point? They did a shoddy job on the engine swap, and now I'm in the hole for $1800. Thoughts?

I'd try to settle this with the 1st shop outside of court, if they refuse to take any responsibility then take it to court.

Will I even have a case though? How would I fight this in court without evidence of some kind.

You have any receipts? Small claims is whoever can come up with the most paperwork really.

Talk to someone with legal background and see how far you can go with this.
