Default How far will you go

To retrieve your wedding ring.

A customer lost hers down the front defrost vents. We found it at the bottom of the evaporator. We had to completely remove the evaporator from the vehicle and separate it to get the ring.

Let's just say I would not have taken it in trade for the work.

Thank you for helping her out! This is one of my wife's work friends and she was asking where she should take it to find the ring as well as the other work you guys completed! She is VERY appreciative of what you guys did for her!

I'm glad we could help. It was 2 men all day to take it apart and put it back together.

It took almost as much time to retrieve the ring as it did to swap the engine out.

I could imagine. She brought it by our detail shop to have us take quick look at it. Then a few days later she called me about the motor issue. So I sent her your way.

That motor was toast, there were holes in the passenger valve cover and the radiator was completely plugged.

Unfortunately there were no cheap options on a used motor, I had to pay $2k for one.
