At this point they charged me $40 for their "diagnosis" because I didn't want their services anymore and told me that I had been a problem customer ever since I had walked in the door and I shouldn't question their mechanic because he had 35 years experience. Even after I paid the $40 they didn't want to put my vehicle outside their gate, and told me to call AAA again if I wanted it towed. Well, finally it did get towed to another mechanic.
Well what do you know. It didn't need a new engine. The distributor cap had gone bad, that's why it had stalled and would not get a spark to restart, not because there were phantom bubbles blowing into the radiator. These scammers thought I would not get a second opinion because they effectively had my vehicle hostage inside their gates and would not release it without me calling AAA to have it towed. I reported this to AAA, but they said that they had no control over the garage, just the towing service.
STAY AWAY from this garage.
