I think he named the facility---Why should you have to get your hands dirty when you PAID someone else to change your oil? How about someone checking after the "mech" has changed it, started it, and parked it outside. I once drove from Maine to Baltimore with no cover on the oil fill tube. They left it stuck up beside the filler tube. Lost over a gallon of oil and made an awful mess. Here at home I am lucky to have a independent truck garage that takes real good care of mechanical things with my Freightliner chassis and Cummins motor. Hate getting out of my comfort zone.

SpeedCo makes you "witness" the dipstick when they are done. Also, they will let you put on a hard hat and go into the "pit" to see what work they have completed....Dennis

I don't want to slam anyone. But now I found out they over filled the engine by eleven quarts of oil. Drained some and still pouring out of dipstick tube. Changed oil and put correct amount in two days ago.
Still pouring. Took it to Cat. They think dipstick seal was blown out is all. We'll see.
I'm tired of this kind of stuff.
I'm thinking it is probably going to end up costing us 3,000.00 or more to fix the paint and grill, batteries, and who know what more damage to the engine, another oil change plus two nights so far at motels, one visit by mobile technician, just because some under paid piece work technician wanted to get finished and get to the next job.
Not to mention our peace,of mind and loss of several days. plus cost of staff at storage to take it to them and tell them, in detail what to be done and pick up.
It would be nice to have one trip without having to spend a couple thousand dollars, or a few days or weeks working, on the coach.
The Customer Rep said the Service Mgr would do the right thing. I'm not up to any more conflict or. I'll suck it up and leave them alone.
It was Freightliner of Chattanooga. Maybe I'll change my mind.

so tell us how does oil damage your paint and batterys and grill
and when you 11 quarst over all U had to do was drain the oil to a apropreate level,No big deal other than agravating for sure to have to deal with it
