How many times have I heard this same story! I think your mechanic, if that what he really is, is killing time and hoping that you will take it away, he doesnt want to fix it, it will cost him money. Just be careful they dont try to say its out of warranty now, not my problem. As am unsure as to you rights as a consumer there, I am in Australia, I would look into what he is doing, an engine would not take 8 months to find, 8 weeks would be to long. Contact your consumer affairs organization and get there advise, but hurry up as I feel he is pushing for the expiry of the warranty period, and then I feel you will have no option but to pay to get it fixed.
