*UPDATE Employee: So much wrong, I'll only hit upon the main parts
at this point me and my mom decide that neither of us have the money for that so I decide to gt the old trans from cottman to do a little snooping it is then that I start getting pissed, Tom had told my mother that the trans was junk and not rebuildable but I completely disssembled it and found out that the friction plates and steel plates had worn out, THATS IT!!!!!!!!!!
total cost to fix it was UNDER $100 and all of the other fRiction plates and steel plates WERE PERFECTLY FINE!!!! at this point I am furious but I held my tongue for the sake of my mom because I can get real mean and real nasty real fast when I think someone is giving anyone in my family the short end of the stick, and it always upsets her when I yell however sence we found out that info I decided to just comb the junkyards and find one from a running vehicle because tom said that he couldnt rebuild the trans so we found one 4 days later for a reasonable sum of $315 at Airway Auto in battle creek, so we made a day trip of it and went and bought the trans with 38k miles on it and when the guy who owned the place asked who was installing it I said probably myself but if things get tight then cottman would do it..... this is where I started hearing more hororr stories and one cought my ear about a guy with a jeep grand cherokee that had work done to their truck and after it was done while they were on a family vacation a week later the transmission magicly shifted ino reverse causing them to spin out and roll their jeep. and at this point I think f*** this joint I will do it myself but after my mom decides htat se still wantsthem to do it because they said it would be done in 2 days whereas I said I would work on it in the evenings until it was done but less then a week and atleast if I did it I knew it would be done correctly but no she wanted it monday like they said, told my mom that he was full of shit and proceided to make a wager of $20 that wouldnt be done on time.... I won I went down there on wendsday and looked at him square in the eye and said "What the hell is goin on?" and his only reply was that his $5 a hour labor hadnt shown up in 5 days but reguardless he was able to have a tech work on a $100k showcar that came in with a problem over the weekend... I guess we were put at the bottom of the list because we didnt spend the $2k on a rebuild....... and it drug out a week then he needed a seperator plate because he claimed ours was bad ( yea because his hack job mechanics screwed it up) so that was another week and finally when the cat was out of the bag a week later when he found out I had tore down the transmission and ever sence then he has been a total ass to us UNTIL TODAY a glimpse of hope this evening WOW IT IS DONE! too bad the shifter isint ajusted correctly, the transfercase shifter was not either and the transmission was filled with the wrong fluid, my mom drove it about a mile before she took it back to them and said something was wrong... um yea it is a EGR valve and you need a new battery they said....... hmm a 1 year old 1800 cca industrial battery from a Caterpillar BULLDOZER just up and gave up the ghost I dont think so! I have had enough of their bulls#it so I went to their lt and used my spare key and hopped in it and fired it up and took it for a spin and it works enough that it will move under it's own power again so it is comng home in the morning whether they like it or not and I will finish repairing it.
