I have a 1999 Rodeo and a couple of years ago an oil change went wrong and blew my engine. It was replaced with a rebuilt engine. Now my water pump seized which apparently did something to my timing chain. So my repair person fixed it - I told them if I had to put more than $1,000 into the repair I would just sell it. It came in at $980. THEN they couldn't start it and it seems the rods are bent and something is scored and it's another $2,600.
My question; wouldn't the timing chain and water pump have been replaced with the rebuilt motor?
Wouldn't they have been able to tell that the other problems existed BEFORE I was $980 into it?
Professional advice, pls.
