92 Vette

I took my car into the shop a couple weeks ago for a transmission leak.

Long story short and about 10 days later...

New transmission front seal
New front engine seals for old oil leak... leaks drive me crazy!
New Shock adjustment module
New CPU - Main computer - On back order until Sept

anyway I picked her up yesterday and decided to drive her for a week or so everyday to make sure everything is fine... I went to pickup dinner tonight and I smelled smoke. I looked when I got home, yep both an oil leak and a transmission leak... I'm so pissed I could kick him in the nuts.

I will take it back tomorrow and give him a little piece of my mind. bastards..............................


Just had to vent.....

You think about maybe having an impartial mechanic looking it over to verify the "new" leaks so you have more ammo when you go back?

Sucks to hear...I hate car trouble...

Well he replaced all the seals and gaskets on the front of the motor including the pan gasket..... It's now leakign from the front in the same place he was working on it. so it's a no brainer.

As for the transmission leak, it's not leaking from the pan..... he had that off too. So I don't think it's an issue of where it's leaking, but you never know what he will say.

Oh ya, we even replaced the water pump while we where in there, had a bad bearing (from sitting too)

i feel your pain, my car sits in the shop for like 3 days, I have electrical problems i melted some things doing 150 km/h guess that speed is really too much for my Punto. So first they thought it was a speed sensor, they changed it and still sth was fucked up. Now they found sth new next to the transmision and i''m picking it up today and it should be fine

Turns out the hammered a seal in the timing chain cover for the duraspark. They changed it and now it's still seeping from the balancer seal now.... They are keeping it over the weekend...

Of well, it's too hot here for the convertible anyway....

You could always have my luck and have your truck in the shop having the tranny rebuilt for the tune of somewhere between $1300 and $1800 bucks. It's been there for 2 weeks now. Ram power my ass......LOL.
