It would sure hurt to punch that freak in the face.

You're hired!
You forgot: Shown up for work for a week without being late, or totaling a car, or being stoned, and you'll be promoted to Asst. Manager with a 25 cent raise.

Doesn't matter where you go. This little place up the street called "The Grease Monkey" has been changing oil for us for years w/o a problem.

One weekend I got the oil changed on my old F250, drove it home and parked it. After coming home from work that Monday I noticed a huge puddle of oil underneath the drain plug. They lost the little o-ring and just put the drain plug on w/o it. I lost 2 quarts that day.

They apologized and gave us 50% the next one. They were always good so we took the wife's car in next. Another puddle, not the drain plug this time though. They didn't tighten the filter enough. Lost a quart.

I went in and told em we'd never be back and that I'd bad mouth em every chance I got.

I doesn't matter who you are, if you get in a hurry quality goes down quick.

The problem with walmart--

They arent real mechanics. All they do is change oil and tires. Not one person in any Wlamart TLe is ASE ceritifed.

My ex took our Honda Del Slo on their for a simple change one day. She came home, I went out to check for leaks and proper level. Oil was black as hell and smelled like gas. They didnt change the oil or filter.
I drove it back up their and told them, they said it would be 3 hours before they could inspect it. To which I replied, The KSAG's office is only 10 minutes away. It was promptly corrected.




My wife took our Accord in this July and had them do an oil change. A few days later, I notice they had indicated 5-20 was used in the change. I called in and asked if that info was correct, and they assured me it was. I waited till it had 4500 miles since that change(a week ago) and took it up there sunday. Asked the TLE manager what oil should be put in my car. To which she replied 5w-20. I requested she go check the book, and let me know that it said 5w-30 in the cool months, and 10w-30 in the warmer months. She went and checked, came back kind of embarrased, and said I was completely correct. Said absolutely nothing baout I had waited 2 months to tell them about it.

Oil and fikter were promtly changed, all fluids checked and toppped, windshield washed, and interior vacuumed out.


This is a rare instance where the manager was a normal person, who realizes the error. The TLE manager at the old walmart we lived by, was a welfare recieving bitch. With attitude and ebonics fitting of a deathrow inmate.

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

I have no trust in Wally World or the other fast oil change places. I will change and double check it myself!
