It works now. I like to watch techs do my work, but sometimes, that's impossible to do. My wife had an experience several years ago, when her trans fluid was drained instead of the engine oil. Guess where she was at........

They tried selling me an air filter when my last car had only 1500 miles on it. I treated the guy like the jackass he was. I have never been back to a Jiffy Lube since.

My buddy owns an oil change place in the area so I goto him as do my entire family. He doesn't BS people.

That just confirms my suspicions all along. Never actually been to a
Jiffy Lube (and never will now). Had the Goat's first oil change done at the dealership. I stood there and watched them, while talked to the tech.
Not a bad experience at all. Turns out the old tech had a '70 Judge
in his past, and he liked talking about it and the new ones (I did too).
Our other vehicles get Walmart maintenance! :rofl:

Fortunately, my GTO will never need to go to a Jiffy Lube. The dealer will be doing all my oil changes for the life of the car for free.:party:

When I do get oil changes for the other cars I own, I go to Lube express. You never get out of the car and they show you the dipstick empty and full again. You pretty much get to watch everything they do.

Nine times out of ten, it's cheaper to have the dealership do it. Oil change shops charge a serious premium on synthetic oil. I went to Uncle Ed's Oil Change for my first oil change and the technician came up and told me there was a skid plate covering everything he needed to get at and that it would be an extra charge for removal and replacement. I told him to leave it alone and drove it straight to my dealer. Saved $40 to boot.
