Re: Noise at valve cover
you are right. They would have to remove the sensor anyway, that should be figured in with the R & R of the assembly. What a bunch of crooks! At least you got the car fixed before it seized, Im sorry that some mechanics are like that I guess thats why I just fix it myself, and if I cant I get rid of it.
I used to work at a gas station when I was a teenager and the owner had a ring that he would wear, on the bottom of the band was a fold out blade and when he would raise the hood to check the customers oil, he would sometimes open the blade and stab the radiator hose, Now thats dirty. He would make sure he had a replacement before he did it. I can recall him saying nope, cant get that one, we need to order that hose. He would almost always do it to the elderly, usually a female.I finally told my dad what he was doing and my dad went in and quit for me and told his fourtune. The man said I was lying about the whole deal. At the time I didnt really think too much about it, now I feel bad. That old man ended up dying at his station from a heart attack.
