1990 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 180000 miles
I told my mechanic and the owner of the shop that I had a bad heater core hose that was leaking and that I wanted it replaced. They pressured my car even after I told them what was wrong. Two days later my care was running rough, stalling; was taken back to shop. It fiinally stopped cranking. I had already suspected water had gotten into some electrical parts but never did I dream that they would have to replace my distributor. They said they tried replacing only the module, etc. But they did not
get it to start. So, what happened was the water shorted out and burned up my dist. They replaced plug wires, spark plugs, too. All this cost me $417.00. This was not my fault especially since I told him what to replace. Is pressuring a car a standard procedure when you tell them you have a leak and it ran hot? I don't think I should have had to pay for this since I told him what was wrong. The distributor should have lasted the lifetime of the car. What do you all think?
have the same problem?
