Aamco had to clean up after another trans shop didn't do the work asked to be done. Ammco discover the tail shaft was wrong right off the bat and it all had t0 be replaced as wrong seal by AATCO has used the wrong one and the pan magnet had so much build up after only 436 miles I think he just did a oil change and took my money.
Aatco Did this;
$2,500.00 for went only 436 miles on a Total Rebuild??? Is Not Right!!!
Missed Diagnosis is Now costing me another 3,700.00 to fix the REAL ISSUES on My 1998 3/4 ton Chevy Express Van 4L80-E Transmission a Diagnosis Missed or was Never Done and Never Test Driven.
Wrong Output Shaft and Rear Bearing, needed to be changed out and tail housing was damaged and never called me on it. Skippy just put it the 4l80e back together and never test drove the van. Right off the bat the transmission slammed into first and second, after 240 miles it lost Over-Drive.
Then 436 miles it started blowing oil all over the rear. It's sat for over six months STUCK and Stranded in Phoenix, while trying to get AATCO to tow it back, but they don't have the ability to. Not able to tow this big a Van ether so shipping is the only way and that's over 350.00 alone.
Now taken to AMMCO they discovered the Wrong Rear Shaft and the Rear Bushing should have been Replaced, but were NOT. Skippy never called me about any problems and for 2,500.00 they should of Diagnosis this as the yoke was a cut one in the first place and that should of been the first clue after me telling him the yoke had to be cut by the last people that replaced the trans.
The Rear Speed-O Gears on the end shaft should have been the second clue, this Rear Shaft was not for this application and should have been changed out.
But it was done in a slap dash hurry. Not test driven even. So they could get out early on Saturday.
Big clue was the speed-o is not at the rear and this rear shaft had that gear on the end which made it the wrong tail Shaft in the first place, but this and the Cut Yoke did not clue anyone in on the true problem it had, but they had no problem taking my cash.
AAMCO did a great job getting my baby to purr again and runs like a bat out of Hell now Amy will help all she can and was a good sport dealing with me and my outrage of the first so called repair. Aamco or dealer from now on for me.
