job was poorly done

Agreed, its still in the shop, can you give me advice


what did they do besides spark plugs?

Okay well this is what happened. I had it towed out of there after 4 days. Brought it to another mechanic. He looked at it... one of the mechanics on the first job dropped a bolt in one of the valves... believe that shit?? So the new mechanic called the old and told him. The old mechanic when to the new mechanic and saw for himself. The old mechainic paid for the entire job. So thats really it im back running. Runs better actually. On mile 231079 as we speak


glad to hear :)
