Customer Question
I purchased a 2007 Pacifica...
I purchased a 2007 Pacifica in nice condition last summer except that I shortly found out that it has a crack in the transmission case, not disclosed by the dealer. As a result, I've been making the dealer fill it up once a month. It consistently loses about 1 quart of fluid every month but otherwise seems to be working just fine. The dealer won't fix it for free because they won't allow that it was cracked when they sold it. The dealer mechanic says it was leaking when they got it (I got this out of him because I know him). He also says that it is fixable. I don't want advice regarding how to handle these guys, but rather whether you think it can be fixed by some other mechanic not involved with the dishonesty issue. I like the car. It rides really well and doesn't seem to have any other problems except that the body shop says it was in an accident. It has a mis-matched back bumper. I had the body shop guy touch up all the rust starts so I can keep it nice for a few years. As you can tell, I take good care of my used vehicles and watch them carefully. I would be willing to pay to get it fixed if it would solve the problem. What do you think? "A 66 year old female anthropology professor in Omaha."

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
