Hi, I have a question relating to an auto repair. I have a 2005 Dodge Viper with 13,000 miles on it I recently too into the dodge dealership for repair. The Vehicle was running but noticably bouncing and jerking around when shifting and had a major loss of power. The dealership told me it needed a new clutch. They put a new clutch in and after a week called me back and told me it was still having the same problem I described. I asked the service manager so it didnt need a new clutch and advised me no it still needed a new clutch. They continued to work on it a couple weeks later after they replaced the catalytic converter and this still did not fix the problem the service manager called me and tells me it is going to need a new engine to fix the problem because the rings are leaking. The service manager told me this was because it has been sitting and not driven enough, which I advised him the car has been driven usually a few times a week, and only not driven for a few 2 week periods since I purchased the vehicle in 2005. I am trying to get some answers and advice about this because for the life of me I can't believe a Dodge Viper with perfect service history always maintained and garaged would need a new engine with 13,000 miles on it. Any advice you could give me, contacts, or avenues I could pursue would be helpful.
have the same problem?
