timing belt replaced at 52K miles. Here the deal:
The dealer is going to replace ONLY the right side head.
All three pistons have marks on them when the piston hit the valves.
The Mechanic did a bore scope on the left side head and found no damage, its just odd to me, when the motor is running and I have all three pistons damaged on the right side, and the left side is good
My questions is:
If you replace one head should the other head have a valve job done to match the right side head, because the right side head will be brand
new, and the left side will have 55K miles on it. I am not happy with
Also if the pistons have valve marks, why wont the dealership replace the pistons or even replace the block?
How can I negotiate to have the dealership replace both heads, isn't it common practice when you replace head you do both sides, where can I get this writing, as a defense to make this happen.
What about the pistons, I didn't purchase the car with damage pistons and its under warranty, how can I be sure that the rod and bearings aren't damage, Even a slight damage in the bearings could cause some problems in the future.
Finally, the rental car, should the dealership pay for the rental car?
What I need is written documentation to help me. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
