Okay, so lets correct this response. You are right, truck came in for using to much oil but in your emails it states When we started checking it we found truck had major blow by when oil cap was removed. At this point motor has bad rings. We offered a stock replacement motor but your husband did not want a stock motor. He wanted a built one, so we ordered him an HD Series engine. Yes, this motor is about $2,000 more than a stock engine. Yes, the water pump and oil cooler got replaced because it was needing to be done in order to get the 5 year warranty on the new motor. The injectors we tested them here in a fuel shop and found that they Failed. They failed due to fuel leaking threw the body on injector. This is why your engine failed to begin with, diesel in the oil. By you saying that things got replaced that were good, your husband knew everything that was going on and approved all work, as well as you did. I text-ed a video to your husband and showed him the leaking injectors in the video. When you showed up i showed you the video as well. I explained everything to you when you arrived. Now on the radiator, you are right it was not leaking but in order to drain the coolant you use the drain valve. Thats what it is there for. We drained the coolant and when we went to fill it we found the inside of radiator had came apart. I showed you this when you were here. Also the fan hub bearing was replaced due to bearing going bad. I talked to your husband on this and he said to replace the bearing so we did. Nothing was done that didn't need to be replaced or that y'all didn't know about. I spoke to your husband the whole time threw this job. Now we did test drive the truck and found everything worked great with no problems after we completed the work.
Now when you called and said that there was a connector on the transmission that was broken or loose i told y'all to bring the truck back in. So we can check and see what was done or if it had been that way already. You brought the truck back in on a Saturday and we checked everything over and found there was a broken sensor, that was between transfer case and transmission. You could see that it had been that way for some time. We recommended fixing sensor and gave you a price and it was declined. You say your husband started sending use emails about the truck. Yes we did receive about a dozen emails from him before the job was completed to approve estimates and pay a down payment, through our direct email. After that we did receive an email December 7th after you had came in on December 4th for an oil change and to check the sensor. It takes several business days to reply to emails through the third party reminder system. I don't understand why you didn't call or return in person or email our direct email as before, to get the issue taken care of. Eventually your husband calls and ask me if I'm trying to avoid his call. I told him NO! The best way to get a hold of me is by picking up the phone and making a call. Which he did and I answered. We talked about the transmission shifting issues. He started it and it was shifting hard. He said it never did that before and mentioned about sensor. I explained that we performed work on the engine alone and not on the rear of transmission. From the looks of it, it has been broken. We also told him that the price that was given to you was how much it was to fix it and you denied it. So sensor on transmission was not fixed.
When you say engine ran strong and everything worked good. If that was the case, it would not of been at our shop in the first place for burning oil. As was written on the vehicle issues stated on the the drop off sheet. Yes, you could have bought a new truck but you decided to fix this truck instead. We didn't make that decision. All work was approved and you were kept informed of all steps needing to be taken and you approved. A bit of information for you, when you put a motor that puts out more power than a stock engine which you decided to do, it can make your truck shift more firm than before because of the power difference. We tried reaching out to you again today but no answer.
