Sierra Engine Repair

Good Evening Folks. We have had a very interesting day with Sierra. When we started the truck to go to the dealer it was missing completely on one cylinder. So we drove it to Burger King for the OFM usual lunch and the truck drove terribly.

After lunch we got to the dealer with the newly badly running truck. They quickly found some plug wiring harness chewed into two pieces on one plug. So they took it in and fixed that. The new transmission had not arrived yet. So we brought the truck home and need to take it back in the morning for a finish to some maintenance work the OFM agreed to have done. So homeward we went and the truck ran perfectly. The transmission shifted perfectly and now we get to negotiate what to do with the transmission that is on the way supposedly. What a mess! Once the spark plug assembly was wired properly the old transmission does not need to be replaced $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Don't you love all these electronic devices. So tomorrow will be a day of interesting decisions about who pays for what.

We are very excited for the coming events.

  2. Too many repair centers like to up the cost of repairs to raise their bottom lines. Take the Castle for a spin to check out the Transmission, before you commit to having the change or cancelling it entirely. Better a few dollars on fuel than on unneeded repairs. If they misdiagnosed the problem, let them deal with the cost.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It' about time.
