We had provided informations clearly in the previous statement that we were willing satisfy the customer's needs and requests.As mentioned before, we provided our labor as the customer purchased his own parts (the water pump set) which we informed the customer the parts did not come with any warranty from us in case of defective. The customer had driven his car with the defected water pump for a period of time could cause the motor overheated. The customer insisted we were at fault to cause the over-heat engine. Though we stood by on all our work and services we realized that we had to resolve the problem by replacing a known good engine from a reputable OEM Recycled Company at no charge (Parts + Labor) to the customer. The solution to replace a good known engine would fix the over all engine problems and without a doubt would address the customer's main concern which was overheated motor.After the replacement, we did a 20 miles test drive to ensure the car was driving fine before we had the customer pick up the car. The customer had driven the car for another while and brought it back and complained the car was stalling. We inspected and saw no signs of overheat problem. However, the replacement engine was modified the wire harness as well as electrical wires by a friend of the customer as we were told. We then regrettably had to deny our limited warranty to the customer because after receiving the vehicle services, the customer had took his car to a per [redacted] (his friend) not scheduled and processed through Lucas Auto Repair to diagnose or repair a problem believed to be associated with such vehicle services, without giving us the first opportunity to inspect and remedy the problem (or to consent to an alternative per [redacted] or shop from doing so).

Revdex.com: 8-26-I had my valve cover gaskets done by shop owner *** himself for $for him to say that the valve covers were blown along with camshaft seals only proves that they DIDNOT put sufficient oil in the vehicle.the water pump was also done by ***8/30/..the oil change complaint was done in october 2017so hes speaking about his own workThis goes to show that he notices jobs that are unsatisfactory when he himself did the labor and has no shame or sense of remorse as he swindles and lies his way into peoples wallets and worse into people thinking thinking he himself is a trustworthy friendly knowledgeable businessman. have reviewedthe response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ***, and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint. For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below
