I recently had my engine replaced with a used "new engine". That is I thought I was. Come to find out, I was my original engine, just rebuilt and I broke again (timing belt broke and bended something on engine block) called out the mechanic on it, we went to a different place a picked out a used ls 430 engine. This time I took pictures and he did in fact replace it. Then there was a new problem. The steering was tight, and he replaced the steering pump. It is still tight, but im afraid to go back to this guy for obvious reasons. He has had my car for more than three months.
The steering fluid is a little over max, so thats fine.
How can i, myself, check to see if this pump is in fact working?
I have replaced parts on older cars, like radiator, alternator, starters etc etc. But on older cars. Im a little of a novice on these new computerized cars.
I live in the 91335 area in los angeles, and dont know a reliable lexus repair guy. And going to the dealership is just too expensive for me. Please help me!
Ps. He also emptied out my freon! Where can I report this guy?
