That always helps, kinda funny when you have a bunch of clutch plates and a band still sitting on the bench when you are done

Many years ago when I worked at a dealership it was always a fun time to toss a bunch of random bolts and parts into someones rebuild project.

did i mention the crap work?

be warned. Jeff said he's had good results with him though so who knows.

I knew you were not happy but don't think I ever heard the whole story. I have had Bob work on two cars for me and have sent a couple others there but it seems pretty clear you got a raw deal.

hay man i have a trans siting here from my last setup you can have if you want for now till you fix yours it shifted smooth i just didn't have the tc lock hooked its a 32rh ....

and i know places close by here in Mexicali MX that do hell of a job with trans you just have to take it out of the jeep and we can just cross with just the transs to get it fix keep in mind i live in imperial ca 5MI away of superstition
so if you want my old trans you can have it
if you want my buddy's shop take your trans out and get it rebuilt in MX we can do that for you too for allot less than what that shop is telling you

Jason,

This whole thing sounds like a good one for the BAR (Bureau of Automotive Repair) to get into. Most of these guys know I'm a service manager, so this kind of Illegal and downright RUDE treatment needs to be addressed and STOPPED! How long ago was it?

Another jewel of wisdom I'd offer is that anyone, even me but not Jeff, can screw up once in a while. That's what warranties are for. But crappy work, combined with poor treatment and outright cheating is not acceptable. IMHO. JMTCW

No kidding. As I have said my experiences there have been all good but maybe I was the exception and Jason's situation was the norm. In any case it always seems that too many people seem to have bad experiences with auto repair.

exactly, things happen, people make mistakes. i can deal with that. dude straight faced LIED to me....then tried to take me thru the freaking ringer when he realized he screwed it. it clearly stated to only perform an inspection and to call me prior to any work being done. i think it was a year or so ago...i gave the reciepts to the current mustang owner last month when i sold it. took me a second to figure out what JMTCW meant lol

oh yea, when i went to pick it up you could still smell the fresh spray paint. i made a comment when i was loading it in the back of the other mustang, somethign to the effect of "the paint still smells fresh eh?". He just gave me the 'go f*** yourself' look. If he just would have told me he screwed up and rebuilt it without asking me it would have been a different story. oh yea, his price went from 750 to 14or1500 because he had to replace the 1/2gear and the synchros. yea dude, thats part of the rebuild kit. and i told you that before i gave it to you...and a 1/2nd T5 gear only costs 90 bucks at most. suck it.

This was the first time in i'd say about 12 years that i've brought my car to a mechanic...for this EXACT reason. last time was the infamous roller rocker helicoil incident. i'll spare the details, but they should have used a metric kit. otherwise i wouldnt have had a destroyed aluminum head and wouldn't have had to find another one in a junk yard, rebuild that and install myself. ugh

have i ever told you guys about my experience at Midway Jeep when i went in for a quote for repair after i drove over that altima?? LOL

While we're on the topic or **** or shady service.

Had the infamous P0016 code thrown last week after a BL/MML. I knew there was a whole can of worms going on surrounding that code and issues with camshaft/OPDA gears in 05/06 models. While searching JF for what it could be I figured that maybe we hit the OPDA while putting in the MML and threw the timing off or possibly hit the sensor. Either way, the Jeep was running on "limp" mode and capping at 3500 RPMs due to the malfunctioning sensor.

The Jeep sounded fine and did not have any knocking, screaming, or any other unusual noises coming from the OPDA or any where else so I took it to the dealership (Rancho Chrysler off Balboa) to see if they could figure it out. They told me it was the cam and crank sensor and estimated it would be $85 for parts and $300 for R&R. I let out a laugh and told him to just order the parts and I'd do it myself. 20 minutes is all it took. Rounding to .5 labor units would put their shop at $600/labor unit. WTF? I did have to take it back to get the engine code cleared due to the sensors needing to be re-synced ($50).

I hate dealerships!
