When they got the transmission off, they noticed a bad a bad leak from the pan. I figured since it's an 18yr-old car with 130k on the clock at a shop that is capable of doing the job, I'd just let them do it while they're working on it.
They still have to do the oil pan seal job, of course.
Mostly, I don't know what's up with the ride height. They said the rear height wasn't as good as they'd have liked, but I have no idea what that means. They're supposed to be getting done with it on Tuesday, but I don't know, and I don't want to show up and say "ummm, no...fix it again."
Problem is, as FREAKING OBVIOUS AS IT WOULD BE to be a stubborn assertive arse and say "you're going to have to explain this in more detail" and, "no, I will not pay a cent until I am happy with the car", those thoughts do not occur to me in the moment. Instead, it's "pay up, smile, and hope it all works out." or some stupid approximation.
Yeah, that's the problem. I don't want to show up with my wife and kids waiting in the car and say "no, fix it again" and have this discussion, come back to the car, and have to explain to everyone that I'll have to come back again. That voice screams in my head all the time, and those sorts of thoughts are why I make rushed (and supposedly safe) decisions that ultimately are not 100% in my own interests.
