What should be my next step?
I just got my engine back from being re-built and it sux...and allow me to explain why. I sent it in the shop about 1 month, 3weeks ago to get it fixed and the guy (Mike)at Performance Direct said it would be about 2-3 weeks to get it fixed. and about $5150. Ok, 1 month later, i call and am like whats the deal (But trust me i called many times b4 in that 1 month's time) and he tells me that i need a new head and that almost all my valves are bent. Ok, used head:$650. Total now at $5800. time now at 1 month 1 week. Sent friends to take pics of engine progress, they come back with pics of beer on my car and parts scattered on floor... WTF. I go to check and confront the situation, all i get is an apology and a statement saying it wont happen again. Finally they get my car engine in car 1 1/2 month after i sent it in. Go to pick it up, found out they backed it into something, and large white scratch on rear bumper. They refuse to give insurance co. name.Drive it less than 8 mi. car overheats. Take it back, and next day they said something wasnt connected to the thermostat or something and now "its fixed." Break in period: its fine until about 380 mi when it has a full tank of gas and the car feels as though its ran out and studdering... Doesnt do that all the time,but still worries me. So after 500mi oil change, go to kick in the vvtl-i. Hello wall. Stops at 6k on the dot. engine light pops up and turns off. Pull to side of road to check problem, all of a sudden sounds like a nut under the valve cover just starts flying around and stops. car runs like crap and wondering what should be my next step?
