As you may recall we went from being told we had two blown head
gaskets, to a cracked block....the last post I left you with the news
that they had taken the engine block out of the car, that the heads
were magnafluxed and OK, that the head gaskets were OK, that the
intake manifold gasket was OK. Also that I referred them to the TSB
that this board advised ..... that described the manifold, Egr, and
plenum problems...and that I wanted to have a GM rep get involved.
Well with all that they pulled the block took it to Rorchester,
for magnafluxing ..it was found not to be cracked.....I received a
call this morning that the car was reassembled and I should come in
....they asked me to pay the cost of the upper and lower manifolds
plus labor ($ over $800) they would pick up all other costs. I offered
to pay half inasmuch as it was a misdiagnosis and I was without a car
for two weeks and we were put through musch anxiety and stress.....we
settled on that number.
You folks gave me the courage and information to resist the
original diagnosis , even though in my gut I felt it was wrong and it
didn't make sense to have all this happen after bringing my car in for
as factory recall. So whether it was a coincidence or something else
we are glad to have our car back and get on with our life.
Thank you all for your help
