MY OWN TESTIMONIAL (OR HOW THIS GOT STARTED)

 

I had a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I had kept in immaculate condition. One Sunday afternoon, it would not start. After looking it over, I found that there was no fuel getting to the rails, and that meant to me that the fuel pump was not operating properly. I had the Jeep towed to the dealership I worked for and on Monday morning went over to the service department. I explained the problem and specifically asked them to install a new fuel pump. Later in the day, the Service Manager brought my vehicle to the Collision Center and told me that they had just replaced a relay, since they got the engine running. This did not satisfy me, but since the car ran, I went home. It ran for two days, and then on Wednesday evening, the problem recurred. Once again, I had it towed, but this time to the Collision Center where I worked. I went to the parts department, purchased a fuel pump, and found a service tech that would install it for $40 as a side job. When I confronted the Service Manager, he said he was trying to save me money. I reiterated that I had originally asked that they install a fuel pump, and had not requested a diagnosis or money-saving patch. The upshot of all of this, the service department would have charged me about $750 to install the pump, but when they dropped the ball, I had the work done for less than $300.

My condenser fan on my 2006 Honda Accord quit coming on. I put a little water in the radiator. It started to spin again. But, it will still overheat, when The car switches gears.
