Meineke Car Care Center - Littleton, CO / Terrible experience

1 United States

I took my van in to Meineke, on June 8, 2007, to have an ongoing oil leak repaired. This wasn't the first time I took my van in to Meineke for a leak. Meineke had already replaced every hose you can imagine, water pump, radiator, manifold gasket set, and now they recommended I have my oil gasket and transmission gasket replaced. I took it in to have this done on June 8, 2007. Paid 678.46 for the repair. The next day had a worse oil leak. Took it back To Meineke on Monday. They said the oil gasket wasn't seated correctly and repaired it at no charge. The next day I still have a leak. Meineke said it is back splash, just give it a few more days and it will go away. That weekend I put a card board under my van. Sunday the whole card board was covered with oil. Took it back to Meineke on Monday. They kicked me off the property and said never to come back. I was forced to take my van to Alpine GMC. My van makes my living, because I too have a repair company, but I repair residential appliances. Alpine had to repair Meineke's mess. It is printed on their invoice why I was leaking so bad. Meineke had: Put the incorrect material for oil pan gasket, they used the incorrect torque and cracked the oil pan. The oil filter adapter and oil cooler O ring they replaced was leaking. Meineke over tightened the Idler arm nut and damaged the threads. Meineke sealed the transmission gasket improperly.

I filed a complaint but Meineke denies all of it. Meineke has not tried to compensate me for any of the damages done.
