    Re: 24 Hour Random Spam Discussion Thread

    FU@@#@#$@#$%!@#$%!#$%!#$%!#$%^&*o%$%@#@#$ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    now that that is temporarily out of my system...
    so for the first time ever a couple months ago i took my cts to Mr.Lube to have the oil changed... it was raining, i was lazy... and figured hell i worked there once upon a time and we never Effed anything up... right?

    well... i went to change my own oil today and when i pulled the drain plug out shavings of metal were wedged in te drain plug threads...oh the horror, i knew this meant they overtightened it or cross threaded it. then i noticed the whole drainplug and pan covered in primer paint (so, its common practice of mr lube to paint over any potential leaks...again, i useto work there...) then i notied my plastic oil filter cover was also covered in primer... luckily i think the fool just went spraypaint crazy because i didnt notice anything wrong with that housing.

    so fearing the worst i went to carfully put the drainplug back in.. tough starting it so i did it verry carefully by feel..she went in...almost snugged up then got loose again.
    so i think they overtigntened it and ripped some of the threads out.

    before i go back there and freak out, im checking with the dealer who ive got connections with to see if they can or will tap the threads and put in a bigger drain plug... now i really doubt it because i believe it is aluminum.

    so anyone on here have this happen to them? any real solutions other than a new oil pan.... i just put in 4 new shocks and springs then did a timing job, waterpump and a crapload more... if this drainpan is going to cost me more than $500 the car is going up for sale and im putting one of those temp plugs in with the butterfly nut...
    ill go buy something new... FACK!!!![COLOR="Silver"]

    ----------
    re tapped the drain and put in a bigger drain plug... im never letting someone else do my oil again.

    Re: 24 Hour Random Spam Discussion Thread

    Ya..not impressed. I know how mr lube does things. .I worked at one years ago. We didnt mess up any cars, always careful. There was 1 time though the manager messed up a transmissiin pan service, I think he polished the pan too much and warped the rim, couldnt get it to seal even with the new gasket... he soaked it in spray paint to cover it up and "seal" it....

    So whats your thoughts on the 2013 camaros?
    If I got one ide really want a v8, but ive got inside info that a dealer overordered and paint colors with options that are harder to sell...engines unknown at this time but apparently most are manual trannys.

    Re: 24 Hour Random Spam Discussion Thread

    I don't like them as much as the 14 lol. I would never get a camaro/stang/challenger with a v6 either. It would have to be a manual. I've rode in mickmosh's 11 ss and its definitely a fun car. He lost some of the refinement he had in his cts. He says he would never go back simply because of the power but he does miss it every now and then lol.

    If I was looking at a new ss, I'd definitely be thinking long and hard at getting a used cts-v coupe(he wishes he would've went that route)...Especially when the 3rd gen launches..prices should drop quite a bit.

    That new CTS is starting to grow on me. I hated it at first. I still think there are way too many creases all over the place.
