My company had starter replaced on Saturday. I drove it for 300 miles on Sunday. Hooked up towing trailer, stopped and filled up with diesel, pulled out of service station and didn't make it 4 blocks before massive, and I do mean MASSIVE amounts of white smoke begins to billow out of exhaust. It's 3 a.M, co. Mechanic says walk back to service station and purchase oil. Not gonna happen.I'm female, it's 3 a.M. Why are they telling me to put oil in it anyway? What is up with that?
Tells me to proceed to next safe location and wait there. Temp gauge jumps to HOT @ 15mph, still billowing white smoke like the old days mosquite fogging trucks. While I slowly travel another mile to safety. A guy arrives, says no oil or transmission fluid levels are registering. He proceeds to drive it another 3 miles and decides that it needs to be parked. It is still sitting where we left it, and no one has been out there as staff is busy. They are claiming that I put unleaded, not diesel in the tank. I am furious, and have fuel receipt, but they don't seem to want to hear me. HELP!
have the same problem?
