I have the date code stamp off the engine block. I have LKQ stamped into the engine block. (LKQ is an auto parts recycler) I have an aluminum engine block the one that was in my car was made of iron. I have gaping hole on the drivers side of my transmission where the starter should go. I have a hole on the passenger side of my transmission that was cut with a saws-all so they could install the starter on the wrong side of the transmission since they were bolting the starter up on the wrong side, since they were installing the wrong engine.
I do not have any records for the repairs by the original repair shop. the original repairs were paid for by the dealer I bought the car from. Yes I had the car inspected by another licensed mechanic. I had him document all of the mistakes made by the other shop. I had him remove the transmission so I got pictures of all the damage. as well as invoices for the work I had done last month.
I am looking at $5500.00 for a suitable replacement engine. $1200.00 to $1500.00 for a transmission $2500.00 for installation so approximately $9200 -$9500.00
the reason the dealer paid for the repairs is because the engine seized 2 weeks after we bought the car. the dealer never provided any paper work. his response has been that he paid the repair shop $4000.00 if I had any problems take it up with repair shop.
are you sure I cannot sue the repair shop? I really don't like them
