So I dropped the 2001 trooper off at a transmission shop that was recommended to me. The owner told me that he would check it out and drop the tranny for free to see what is wrong with it. End result is it needs to be rebuilt to the tune of $1800 bucks! I said no thanks, I'll come pick it up just leave the key in it and I'll be by after work. He response was, "No problem but you owe me $500 for checking it out." Wha???? I went off and told him I wasn't going to pay a dime because he originally told me it would be free. He tells me to come pick it up now because he is going to push it into the street, so I went and got it. They had pushed it about 100yds away from their shop in the grass which made hooking it up to my tow bar a little difficult.

Ugh!!! I'm not mad about the 500 really, I didn't pay it, I'm mad that I was lied too. But I guess the good news is that now the transmission is out and apart :lol:

5speed swap? :lol:

Yeah, free for $1800 dollars! :evil: That sucks.

Like you said though, now you know and I'd do the same thing, just source a replacement and swap it in myself. Good luck on the 5 speed swap. That sounds like a plan there.

Once again if it sounds too good to be true it probably is....who in their right mind would offer to remove a tranny for free? Maybe free if you then let me repair it but even then the labor cost is going to be tacked on to the repair bill....nothings free.

To what inspection fees did you sign on the work order?

If it's in writing (you GOT it in writing - right????) you got 'em by the short hairs.

Otherwise, you got nutthin' here.

Tell us that you got a work order - in writing. Please?

I did so don't worry. Yeah, I would have been fine with paying for it IF he had told me that it would cost something to look at. I didn't go into this trying to rip him off at all. He said, I will look at it and it won't cost you a thing, so I said ok.

Not always,but yea,many if not most shops will deduct the diagnostic cost from the repair if you have them do it there.

I don't think we need this. Can you delete the pic please? I really didn't need my young children walking by the computer and seeing that.
