Car runs fine. I take it in for maintenance. Car does not run fine.
- 1) Overheating
- 2) Oil leak
- 3) Air Conditioner
- 4) Faulty O2 sensor
- 1) Overheating - fixed by replacing every single part in the cooling system, some twice
- 2) Oil leak - fixed
- 3) Air Conditioner - not fixed
- 4) Faulty O2 sensor - replaced twice, but still not fixed
- and now 5) Throttle body malfunction
So here is the pattern – I take a car to the mechanic to have X fixed. I get it back. X may or may not be not fixed, but now Y is also wrong with it.
Okay, I may not be a trained mechanic – but I smell a rat here.
One last thing before you scroll down to the comments and give me your IMHO - please do not tell me what I "should" have done. As well meant as your advice may be - I've had quite enough advice in the last 56 years, thank you very much. The next person to tell me what I SHOULD have done may be beaten severely about the head and shoulders until they SHUT THE FUCK UP.
