    Ok I just got my goddamn car back from the fawking mechanic after it was in the damned shop for a week getting the stupid fawking sending unit replaced. Well, I take it to the fawking gas station to fill it up, and I notice that there is a dripping sound coming from the bottom. Now mind you, this is after I already put in $24 worth of gas, about 13 gallons worth. Well I look over to the side of the car, and there is fawking gas EVERYWHERE. I'm talking like 3 gallons worth just all over the ground. So I was like "OH SH!T" and stopped pumping, then called my mechanic to get it back to him pronto. So I tell him my deal and he is like "oh i must have forgotten to tighten a few bolts" NOT EVEN THAT, then he tells me that he forgot to charge me for the 3 gallons he put in when I picked it up!! I was like WTF my car is fawking leaking gas everywhere and you want to charge me for the goddamned gas you put in it? So he sends a tow truck, and after about an hour it arrives. Well by then the leaking has slowed down a bit, but its still going nuts. Luckily the attendant was really nice and got me some towels to place over the gas spots. So when the tow truck guy loads up the car, it gets at an angle, and proceeds to pour out even more gas, like a soda can turned upside down. [censored]!! So it finally got loaded up and on its way. It was horrible. Well so now its at the mechanics again, sorry for the profanity, but I had to let that out.

    Unfortunately,,,,, there are A&P licensed mechanics just like that and worse who are working on, inspecting and siging off air planes... You would be surprised how many airplane crashes happen within 30 days of the last inspection.

    When he finally gets it fixed you should give him the gas bill and make sure he pays you back for it. Gas isn't cheap around here as you know. If he fails to pay for your gas then remind him about the better business bureau. I bet then he wants to pay for it.

    Mechanics suck... really bad... if I can't fix it and I don't know someone who can, I'll either live with the problem or sell the damn truck... NEVER EVER will I go to a mechanic again unless it's a LAST RESORT type thing... I'm still bitter about my K5 that got MURDERED by a f*cking "certified mechanic"... /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Ya know, that's kinda rude making a generalization about mechanics like that... I know there are very good and qualified mechanics... just not in Cheyenne, Wyoming /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Ok as an update, he just called me. He said that he was sent the wrong seal, so it didn't fit correctly. He got the correct one, filled up the tank, and it's not leaking. Of course no charge, so at least he did what he could to right the situation. I must say that that scared the hell out of me, I'd been driving it around for a while before I filled it up.
