If just rebuilt did they give you some kind of a warranty? If so I would contact them.


yea a year warrenty and im gonna call them back tomorrow i just wasnt sure if it is possible for a gear or barring to be loose inside

That's good. Any thing is possible. I would use caution with it acting up. Cause any damage that might be caused to it now with you knowing its not acting right they could potentially thro blame your way. And you don't need that.


Make them pay for a tow bill.
