123engine What a scam they have going Canoga Park California
These jerks sold me an engine that was supposedly "remanufactured" and very soon after I put it in, I started having problems. It would drink antifreeze and start to overheat. I pulled the head off and found a completely untouched valve train and when I took it to a machine shop to have it checked, they told me that the motor had at least 100,000 miles on it, certainly not a "3 angle valve job" like I was told I was getting.
In addition, the head was not flat and was allowing antifreeze into all 4 cylinders. I had it repaired and 123 will not talk to me about it because they didn't install it. Thats hard because I live in PA.
Since I had the above problems, I started having oil pressure problems. I pulled the bottom of the engine apart and found a crank with MUCH scoring and two grooves that will have to be cut to be fixed.
So, after spending $1,800 or so to get the engine, I have spent an additional $1,900 and I'm still not done. I cant imagine what my bill would be if I couldn't do all the labor. STAY AWAY FROM THESE A**HOLES!!!
