From June 28 until July 20th, many phone calls were placed, along with one fax and then several emails regarding the matter. Then, either that next week or the following, a customer service agent by the name of Shawn returned one of the voice messages and advised a replacement engine would be shipped. I explicitly confirmed verbally with Shawn that the engine would be tested and started as I did not want another bad engine. He said it would be tested. I also confirmed with Shawn that the bad engine was not to be returned to Mid-City Auto Salvage, but instead, that I should sell it and use the money to help offset the cost of labor to install the replacement engine.
The engine was shipped and received on August 9th and then installed on August 12th. On August 15th, I inquired the status of the install. At that time, the mechanic informed me the replacement had a bad head gasket. The oil left in the engine was milky and when the car was run with a new thermostat, it ran hot. Now, in my possession, I have 2 non-functional engines and over $1000 in labor charges.
Thanks Shawn, for your extreme rudeness and clever theft. Wish I had read the report a long time ago.
I checked out the new website, midwestautorecycling.com/ and found it is the duplicate of midcityautosalvage.com/ Clever to try to hide behind a new name, you should have at least changed the website you fraudulent jerks!
Checked out the ownership records of the website.
