Dear Mr. Cervantes:
You actually have a lot of resources to try for help in resolving this situation. Here they are:
If the repair place is a member of the Better Business Bureau, you may be able to get assistance from the BBB. Here is their website: http://welcome.bbb.org/.
Also, if the repair place is a member of the American Automobile Association, the AAA has dispute resolution procedures. Here is their website: http://www.aaa.com/scripts/WebObjects.dll/ZipCode.woa/wa/route.
The Texas Office of the Attorney General may be able to help also. Here is their website: http://www.oag.state.tx.us/consumer/car_repair.shtml
It looks like you could take this matter to Small Claims Court. Here some information about Small Claims Court in Texas: http://www.law.uh.edu/peopleslawyer/smallclaims/ and http://www.texasbar.com/Template.cfm?Section=Legal_and_Judicial_System&CONTENTID=3869&TEMPLATE=/ContentManagement/ContentDisplay.cfm.
