it may be time to say good bye to the love of my life!
It basically went down like this:
Had an oil leak, leaking about 2 quarts per 3k miles. IT was running perfect mind you. They replaced the oil sending unit seal, that wasnt it. then told me it was the timing cover seal. thats like 500 dollars labor!! so i said replace the timing chain, sprocket, and magnet. All together, $886.00 Got it home on Friday and it leaked antifreeze a little after driving it all weekend. JUst about a cup or 2. Drive it to the dealship on Tuesday to have them look at it and get there and all the coolant leakes on the ground. PHEW! they check it out and an O ring on one of the small hoses going into the manifold under the alternator area was broke. They broke it when they did the other work last Friday. They fixed that, Im driving away and as i get a mile down the road. POOF .no power to engine Car stalls. HAve them come tow me back i get a rental car and they call me later to tell me theres no fire. I have an MSD ignitiion about $560. NO one knows how to work on it. I told them to take the coil adapters off and bypass it. They started this the next morning, i drive in about 9:30 and its half apart. They dont have the right size screws to bolt down the coil pacs now that the adapters arent in there anymore. no one is doing anything. I ask ifthey have old cars in the back and suddenly a lightbulb comes on. they go get screws, bolt down the OEM coils with OEM iginition and it works. They fried my MSD when they rinsed the side of the motor off b/c of the antifreeze leaking! I needed to get to work so i just left. Came home that night and it started tapping about 3/4s of the way and got worse. really really worse. I checked when i get home and its got about 1 to 11/2 Qts of oil too much in there and its BANGINGby now. They towed it in again the next morinng, and said the mortor is fried!! wont tell me exactly whats wrong with it but that i need a new motor.
so, I take it in for an oil leak, spend 886.00 to get that fixed, they fry a 560.00 iginition and now my motor is blown? Where is the ****** justice? ("scuse my french kids)
ANYONE NEED SOME REALLY HOT BONNEVILLE PARTS?
