I got my car back yesterday, with the new/used motor installed. They assured me that my car was running just fine and to let them know if there were any problems.
Well, they are getting a phone call from me this morning.....
After I picked my car up, I was headed up to visit a friend...about a 45 minute ride. On the PA turnpike, I went to pass a truck. I stepped on the gas and had no power...then the car just died. I drifted onto the shoulder and tried to crank it up. She tried, was cranking but no start. I tried a few more times, and she started....but knocked, shook, sputtered and died again. For the short time it was started there was again, no oil pressure. Just out of curiosity, I got out and checked the oil. What came out of the dipstick tube was this black gunk with tiny bits of metal in it. Real nice - they must have left the oil that was sitting in that motor, which was sitting in a car in the junk yard for months. I'm just a tad beyond pissed. I had my car towed to my friends house....that I was intending to visit. I wanted to have it towed directly to the place that "fixed" it, but I didn't have that much cash on me.
When I call them this morning, they better tell me that they will arrange for a truck to pick it up.
