Rainwater's A #1 Transmission Reviews (2)
Sept 9th 2012 2000 Chev 1500 Truck was taken to RAINWATERS A#! Transmission & Auto Service to get Transmission Repaired.
900.00 for rebuild no parts
44.55 ? it was was scratched out on bill ?
11.50 oil dis
Total was $ 1132.00
with a 2 YEAR WARRANTY !!!!!!!!!!
The same week, I picked up the Truck it had a ticking noise when driven.
I then called and advised shop it has a ticking noise it never had this noise before!
Rain Waters shop said bring it in we will drive it check it. I dropped it off and it was checked they here noting.
every person that drove with me as a passenger would ask what is that noise ?
I said well I think its the transmission but the shop RAINWATERS say they hear nothing.
June 2nd Sunday the transmission just stopped working!
IT has only been 8 MONTHS !
and I still have WARRANTY !
June 4th Tuesday the Chev was taken back to RAINWATERS
I was told the truck will get looked at Wednesday am.
RAINWATERS calls saying, I BURNED the transmission.
I was short 2 quarts of transmission fluid! and I was responsible for checking it!
I ASKED how is it possible 2 quarts transmissions do not BURN Fluid like an Engine!
RAINWATERS said why dId u not bring it in if u had a leak?
I said leaks I use this truck for work back and forth, I would notice on the payment if it had a leak where I park.
How would I know its leaking.
I take my truck to get oil changes every 3 months and they check my fluids and they never mentioned it was short fluid.
RAINWATERS then said we will have to lift it in the air and check where its leaking from and get me a price on this.
Will call u back later today.
June 5th Wednesday
I called RAINWATERS, I have not heard anything form you yesterday?

June 6th Thursday
I get a call RAINWATERS well the transmission cooling lines fittings went out and caused the leak and they found GASKET SEALANT IN THE TRANSMISSION WHO ELSE WORKED ON THIS BECAUSE THEY DONT USE SEALANTS ??
and they would not value there Warranty!
I told him this should still be covered under Warranty!
RAINWATERS SAID THEY WILL COVER THE LABOR COST BUT
I HAD TO PAY FOR PARTS, $$$ WARRANTY!!! ???? they will call me back after they open transmission and find out what all is burned.
(((((((((( know how will they know there is gasket sealant in the transmission when they have not opened transmission and these parts on the fitting should have been replace when u buy a transmission KIT )))))))))))))))))))))

WARRANTY APPLIES UNTILL APRIL 9, 2014 !!! Do u think I want my truck back in the shop with RAINWATERS!? NO NO NO NO NO
I THINK HE NEEDS TO RETURN MY MONEY BACK AND VALUE IS WARRANTY!
AS THIS TRK WAS IN THE SHOP AT RAINWATERS # 1 TRANSMISSION & AUTO SERVICE
I did a research, I called 7 transmission shops and told them my situation.
all 7 places SAID
RAIN WATERS SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE
THIS TRK WAS TAKEN BACK TO HIM FOR TICKING NOISE AND HE DID NOT FIX IT THEN !
the TRANSMISSION COOLING LINES TO RADIATOR FITTINGS SOULD HAVE BEEN REPLACED THE O RINGS COME WITH THE KIT
THE LINES WHERE NOT FLUSED PROPERLY!
THE SHORTAGE OF OIL COULD BE RAIN WATER DIDNT RUN THE TRANSMISSION WELL ENOUGH TO GET THE AIR POCKET OUT!
AND NEEDED TO ADD MORE FLUID.
WHY WOULD I HAVE TO CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID?
IT DONT EVAPORATE IN THE TRANSMISSION! ITS NOT ENGINE OIL IT DONT BURN !
HOW WOULD HE KNOW THERE IS GAKET SEALANT IN THE TRANSMISSION WHEN HE HAD NOT OPENED IT YET!
I HAVE HAD THIS TRUCK FROM 2000 TILL IT WAS IN HIS HANDS 2013 AND NEVER HAD TO ADD TRANSMISSION FLUID TO IT IN THE 12 YEARS !!
ALL I WANT IS FOR HIM TO VALUE IS WARRANTY!!!
PAY ME BACK FOR THE PARTS!!
