It just so happened that it royally fucked up before that day came.
    Make sure you keep ALL your paperwork and correspondence. If you have all that, especially when you say you talked to them (get names and times ready) and said you would be bringing it right back. From how you post on this thread, you sound like a reasonable person, just don't blowup at them and you should get this resolved. Sounds like somebody did some unauthorized "improvements" to your car and now they have to pay the price. Do your venting/ranting with us to get it out of your system.

    Unfortunetly I bet our young member ( The OP) will be shelling out the bucks as there is noway in hell I know of to prove anything other than shear coincidence. It is probably better to negotiate a free labor and parts at cost deal with the mechanic.....I doubt the mechanic who did the fluid change would argue to hard on that...
    Thanx for the (I think) compliment.
    As far as the OP is concerned, if he can remain calm (I do know it is hard to do!) while talking to the shop, he may be able to get what you are talking about, free labor and parts near cost. Or at least parts at retail and free labor. And if that happens, the OP should consider this a reputable shop and go there in the future for business.

    I gotta go offline now, gotta get the kids in bed and watch an R rated movie with my wife! Get her in the mood, eh?

    No additive is needed for '99 and up LSD, unless you have an auburn. Torsen have worm gears instead of clutches with a paddle that is held in with a small bolt. 10 bolts aren't strong. I still run a 10 bolt with 3.42 gears best ET so far 10.68 @ 127.

    I think the direction he was going was more towards the harsh shifts with the maf......

    I would imagine the tranny guy turned the set screw on his pressure control solenoid to raise his line pressure.....redneck shift kit.
