I just got a truck and not 30 minutes off the used lot had a oil pump failure. I
took it to a Kwick Kar shop and dropped it with the instructions to look it over
bumper to bumper I dont want any problems for at least a year.
I got a call a few hours later the oil pump and oil sensor were both bad but
everything else was looked at and seems really good. So I paid a rather
large bill thinking they went threw everything and the oil pump/sensor
I picked up the truck and noticed over the next week it seems to have little
power getting over 50 MPH or climbing small hills and such. I was sick with a
bad leg my driving was limited at this time.
I took the truck to another Kwick Kar shop and asked them to have a look at
it. I got a report withing a hour the air filter was dirty fuel filter was the original
from the factory and they couldn’t get to my car for a few days and
suggested I talk to the original shop.
Went back to the original shop and they said they checked all of that but out
in the parking lot when I looked at the fuel filter and seen it was old and
slightly rusted all they could say was leave it with them a few days I have to
pay for the diagnostic again not including what they find this time.
I got pissed and left. Its a town over the cab fees alone will be $120 and
more if I stayed in a motel.
Thats a back story of this and im tired of hiring people who dont do the work
Again it seems to have little power over 50 MPH making getting on freeways
a little scary I cant accelerate fast enough.
Im getting about 8 MPG. Its rated as a 15 MPG mid sized truck.
A few times it seems to give slight hesitation on starting and I could small a
lot of gas on a few tries.
From 1 to 10 the idle seems a little rough at a 2.
Also noticed a “rattle” sound under the hood when giving the car gas at any speed.
Any ideals will help me a lot.
