Default Help! Best Shop in LA/OC - 12-26-2016, 02:45 AM

Long story... My mechanic of 2.5 years promised to deliver my car this weekend after having it for months. Received a letter in the mail yesterday late stating my car was towed and sitting in a tow yard in Upland since the 13th of December. My mechanic has not mentioned anything and has been pretending that i will somehow get it xmas weekend.

Picking it up tomorrow morning and need to take it to a new shop. Ive already lost thousands of dollars and have to pay $1100 to pick it up tomorrow.

I originally dropped it off because the serpentine belt was sucked into the motor. He fixed it and test drove it where the high pressure fuel pump spat to much gas and caused damaged to the head. He was in the process of fixing that. He could be lying about some of it or all of it, I have no clue...

Any help is much appreciated and thank you in advance. Merry Christmas :]

So I picked up my car on Wednesday! $1126 for tow yard fees and another $150 in fees from the police department.

Found out what really happened to my car. Bottom end seized on the test drive after he finished it. Anyone have an estimate of what this will cost to have fixed at another shop? When he received the car initially it had a seized bottom end, so most of the internals are new.

What shop was working on your car? Sounds like a shop to avoid..
