I have an astro 2003 with a vortec v 6, 4.3 L, running fine, took it in for an oil change and transmission fluid change and the repair shop blew the engine test driving it, saying I now need a new engine. Engine ran smooth as silk previously except for a slight hiccup when shifting, so we thought a fluid change would help. 129,000 miles. I'm suspicious the mechanic did the damage, since it's run reliably for 7 years. Regular oil changes, etc.
Do you
have the same problem?

Sounds like something went wrong at that shop, The words lawsuit and lawyer come to mind.

Proving it may be impossible, since they'll just replace whatever they neglected (oil is my suspicion or oil plug) and say it was just a failure.
