I got a call from the dealer today. Dealer #2 in Little Falls.
He stated there was , what looked like, a leak by the trans plug.
I told him that the lines and the plug supposedly were just replaced two days prior.
He stated maybe it was residual fluid on the plug, but also the fluid was about 2 full quarts low.
The invoice for my trans stated :
Transmision cooler line
Transmission adapter plug
hose-oil cooler pressure
Obviously one of two things is happened.
Either it leaked and they screwed the new plug up , or
They never added the fluid to the transmission
I have to wait for them to wipe the plug today and add fluid, and drive the vehicle today and tommorow.
Again, it makes me feel that Decozen Service is mucho sucko!
All in all so far, to get the brakes done was about 360 for the front and 420 for the rear, also a brake fluid change, added since im doing the while brake system change.
that and the auto/remote start should be about 1300.00 with taxes.
I figure even if I buy four good jack stands, 150.00 and a portable heater for my garage ($80.00)(which would have to be cleaned up just to get the truck to fit in there), plus some ebay complete rotor and pad kit 400.00 Im at about 600.00
so to pay about 200.00 for the (professionals) and to get the fluid changed Im better off going with the dealer. Also Id rather have someone else than me do the brakes..so if I crash i can blam and sue them
Oh well, I'll give you updates. Im too pissy about the whole fluid trans thing right now. Either way, Im glad by checking the truck frequently, I saw the problem before I got stuck out on the highway somewhere in 22 degree weather.
