I am sorry to read about your difficulties.

You need to make a formal written demand for the repair shop to fix the engine because the shop caused the problem. If the shop still refuses to take responsibility, then you need to file lawsuit and let the Court decide. You would need to get an Expert mechanic as your witness.

The lawsuit would be filed at the Courthouse where the dealership is located. You can obtain complaint forms at the Courthouse in the Clerk's office.

Best wishes,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
