Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Chevy Lumina 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 198000 miles
I own a 98 Chevy Lumina. I recently took the vehicle in for an oil change and a coolant flush. After their initial inspection, they claimed that there was an "unusual engine noise" and asked if I wanted to buy an oil additive as well. I declined because I tried a similar additive recently and noticed no significant improvement in performance. I am also aware that these establishments sometimestry to sell you extra items.
They did the work I requested. The owner states that after changing the oil, they started the engine, checked the transmission, and hooked up their flushing machine. They also state that the vehicle was running the whole time and this "noise" never went away. Then they "pulled the vehicle out to rinse it off." The car never left the bay, so I'm not sure why they would mention this. At any rat, the car would not start. The owner towed the vehicle to his main facility and found that 4 out of the 6 cylinders had almost no compression. One cylinder had zero compression. I think they ran it without oil during the coolant flush. What do you think they might have done?
have the same problem?
