Did they pull the code for the engine light on the first visit ? They are trying to hide something here. The engine light does not come on for no reason.

Tom, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago.
What did they say the exact case was?

They just said the sensor was faulty nothing wrong with the car

Tom, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago.
Which sensor the oxygen sensor?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.

Engine management sensor

Tom, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago.
There is no engine management sensor did they just tell you the engine management light is on?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.

The light came on and went off they said it was faulty and needed a new part

Tom, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago.
Did they say what part I want to make sure you are not getting ripped offf?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.

The problem is that if you read the handbook and the malfunction indicator light comes on it says have it checked I did and they said it was faulty and the car was ok now the Engine and turbo have gone they say it was due to lack of oil but I checked the oil it was ok and no oil light came on I am definitely getting ripped off or why did they blame the oil it how to prove it

Tom, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago.
If you were out of oil the oil light would have came on thats the operation of the oil pressure switch so you have them there.Either they did not put oil n the vehicle or left something loose .You should not be liable and this will hold up if you did need to go to court.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.

it had oil in and there was nothing they could have left loose so the engine was faulty and the turbo had stopped working I think this is why the light was coming on telling me there was a fault and as this was not rectified the engine blew

Tom, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago.
Ok so of they did not check why the light was on it's there fault and they need to fix this at no charge to you it's there fault.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.

its gone beyond that it needs a new engine and turbo are you saying they should do this work as it is there fault?

Tom, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago.
Yes absolutely that was there fault for not diagnosing this issue correctly ?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.

ok I will see what happens
