Are you serious? Is this a trick question? There is no way on god's green Earth a mechanic would do that. It is the absolutely most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Fact is, no disrespect toninou, I just can't believe it. No mechanic, no where, no how no way would do that. To answer your question your engine will be toast before Thanksgiving Day

No no no this has got to be a put-on

No its not im not joking I was wondering if he even fixed the car!!!! He said he was going to change the oil today. But he already drove the car about 5 miles baxk to my house. Is that going to make Any difference if he changes the oil

I guess what I'm trying to say is will my car be working properly again if he changes the oil or should I not change the oil and get another car.. please help me I have already givin six hundred dollars. My fans not working he rugged up (wired my fans to the battery). My oil dipstick is stuck in the whole were you check your oil. I so confused cuz I know nothing about cars period!!!!

Dude...make it known ..if this is a professional mechanic in a shop...post who/where to warn others. You can tell if the heads have been off, they will be clean, (then again with this guy who knows..).. GET YOUR MONEY BACK. All of it. Was this guy in 'Deliverance"? Don't let him touch your car. Period. Get the oil changed, pronto, and keep a close eye on it, he may not have even done the job.

I agree with fordnut totally!!!! No mechanic even a "tree shade" mechanic would do all that work and put old oil back in engine!! I would bet he didn't do the work! Did he rig the fan maybe to stop your overheating problem? Was he the one who diagnosed the blown headgasket? Like fordnut said probably won't see turkey day!!!......
