Took to former mechanic of mine (before I moved) who says he can see head gaskets replaced, but no evidence this has seen a machine shop. Says he could have put in a brand new engine for $2,000.00 in two to three hours, whereas I spent $1,600.00 for first go round.
Back to drawing board so as not to lose investment thus far (I have spent over $4,000.00 on this car in one year). Now current mechanic insists he had rebuilt from top to bottom, but he is unsure as to why repair did notwork and wants to put another used engine in car. I have no clue what to do. I do not believe this mechanic is deliberately delaying or cheating me, but what should I expect after a rebuilt engine? Does car normally need x number of miles to "clear out" residue? I have never missed an oil change, but this car has only been mine for three years.
And is it normal for a machine shop to keep engine for weeks?
have the same problem?
