I just got my car back from the mechanic.
I havent told everyone this story but to make a long story short, the guy who sold the car from me 'modified' the radiator so he wouldnt have to buy another one and it failed on me once while i was on a trip in NJ. I needed a new radiator ($500)
I just got the car back from the mechanic because of a hell of an oil leak. The oil pan gasket is leaking all over and the oil sensor was 'jimmy rigged.' The dude i baught this from decided to silicone the sensor instead of replacing the seal. I need a new gasket and sensor. $250 after labor.
He also said that he took a look at the transmission since i told him it takes about 5 seconds to kick in once i put it in reverse. He said that the fluid was a pure black color apposed to the reddish color it usually is. and he also said the filter needs replaced for sure. Before i baught this car the dealer said he would flush the tranny and change the filter before handing it over to me. He lied. $130 for the tranny to be flushed and refilled and the filter to be changed.
So this is $880 that I should have to spend because the dealer was a douchebag.
Im pissed off.
