Last week I noticed oil spots on the driveway under front of truck. Went out and looked underneath, reddish oil dripping along the back edge of the skidplate.
Take it to dealer, tell them that got fluid leak, I think transmission fluid. They get it in the service bay, take a quick look (didn't put it up on lift? not sure why not) and estimated around $400 to replace two lines. Not covered by extended warranty, that sucks but OK fix it.
Get it back following day, truck hasn't been washed (they always wash them). Take a look the next day, still got fresh oil. Get under there with a flashlight and really start looking, I can't see where a single bolt has been removed, or any signs of new looking parts. The little bolt that holds the tranny dipstick in place does not look like it was removed either. I'm no master mechanic, but I would think that after servicing a vehicle with a fluid leak, that the fluid in question would be checked and topped off? Now this morning its making a groaning noise around corners, I am thinking power steering pump now? Did they fix the wrong thing? Did they fix anything?
So anyway I am ticked wife is pissed too because we both gotta run up there after work so she can take me home and then we change our schedules so we can share the car. Hopefully they will find a way to get me a loaner.
Here's what I want. :boxing: I want the friggin' leak fixed. I want that noise gone. I want all my fluids topped off. I want the truck exterior washed, an engine bay cleaning would be nice too.
OK I feel better. Will get an update when it happens.

I hear ya, sometimes you just gotta vent. Don't act pissed and start yelling at the dealer just yet. Use that, I am doing my best not to go postal on you voice. I have found it very useful. Also, get yourself a small brown bottle used to carry nitro (heart med). Put some small candy in it, as small as you can find to mimic the actual nitro pills. If they start to give you a hard time, pull out the bottle and pour some in your mouth, let some fall the the side as you tip your head back just for effect. Look like your in pain, clutch your chest a little and ask them to repeat what they just said. This little trick works wonders at the DMV too. Good luck.
