I just bought a real clean '96 Signature Series Town Car with 118000 miles
from a dealer "as is" with no waranty. I just discovered it is leaking
engine oil from the housing cover where the trans meets the engine. I called
the dealer but I don't think they will do anything.
I am assuming it's the rear oil seal. I live in west suburbs of Chicago.
Does anyone know how big or expensive this job should be? Thanks in advance
for any suggestions.
Thanks. The Dodge dealer I bought it from actually called and asked me to
bring it in Tuesday so they could check it out. Maybe they will make an
accomodation because I reported it an hour after I bought it. It leaked
enough on the way home from the dealer that it left a puddle on my garage
If they give you a break on it... and fix it especially... please reward that
dealer with your recommnedation and praise.!
Most people bitch and moan when they get stiffed by a dealer but do nothing
to positively reinforce GOOD service.
In Columbus, where repair work was met over and above stipulated, I recommend
Keim Ford.. and Graham Ford for parts. Again based on attitude and service.
Isnt that what I said? FRom your scrape it looks like I said to do nothing
to reward good service.
"Most people bitch and moan when they get stiffed by a dealer but do nothing

Thanks for reinforcing that...I think.
Or maybe you're too used to reading Kerry's speeches.

You said people "...but do nothing to positively reinforce GOOD
service." and I disagree. People usually reward good service by giving
good word of mouth recommendations, don't they?
And what's a scrape, anyway?
I will sing their praises to all if they do the right thing. Besides this is
the third car we have purchased from them. My son bought a new one and this
is the second used car I have bought from them. I will name them here in
this group either way!
