Question about 1998 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Tune up 98 Dodge Stratus

I had some work done on my Dodge 3 weeks ago. AC Compressor, Serpintine Belt and a Tune up
Three weeks after having this work completed and 300 miles later, I'm driving my car and it just stops!! I had to coast onto a side road and at this point I try to restart. No such Luck!
I have it towed to a local repair shop and they find that the fuel line was not attached to the fuel filter. Could this possibly be the work of the previous repair shop when they did the tune up? Perhaps it was not attached securely when the tune up was completed? Or does the fuel line, fuel filer have anything to do with this problem at all?
Since I had to pay the second repair shop to reattach the filter to the fuel line, isn't reasonable to ask the initial repair company to reimburse me for these repairs?

If the previous repair shop was to replace the fuel filter and the line fell off, it would be the responsibility of the shop to re-imburse you for the re-attachment of the fuel line by the second shop. At least that's how we do it at our shop. If we made a mistake no matter how small, we do the right thing to keep the customer happy.

If you have a separate belt driving the ac compressor then leave the belt of. IF it has to go around the ac pulley then disconnect the power lead at the pulley clutch and again no problems as the ac pullet becomes an idler.
