Question about 2004 Ford Thunderbird
I have a 2006 dodge stratus. had a slow transmission leak so took car to shop and cooling lines were changed which stopped the leak. noticed car doesnt seem to be driving the same after lines were changed. checked transmission stick after driving and fluid level reach the cold mark after the car has been driven. I have called to take car back to shop in 3 days. I think the shop put the lines on and didnt add transmission fluid. I drove my car a week and now wonder if the transmission is ruined. I was thinking about adding fluid but if I do now the shop will probably say they didnt do anything wrong. should i leave my car sit the 3 days take it to the shop and show them the stick is low?
Leave it sit, let them see it,and say it's not running right now. ask them it was in there for a leak, why didn't they top it off? and ask them what are they going to do about it slipping? if they say nothing, pay for it and make sure to KEEP your reciets. tell them, you'll get another opinion from a tranni shop and you'll ask them if not adding fluid is the cause of it acting up now? fyi, this will cause them never to work on your car again. everything i said will **** them off and ban you from that shop. now, if they offer great. see, most shops carry insurance where if they ******* like that, the insurance will pay them to put in a new tranni and labor at no cost to yourself. it will raise their rates and they do their best to avoid this but if it means keeping a good rep, they normally will do so just to keep a good feedback from customers.
