Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Are you saying they caused the oil leak?
Have you had the vehicle examined by someone else to see what the leak was caused by please?
no leak when it left my house no oppertunity to examined still in there workshop
Have they told you the cause of the link?
OK. You need to ask that the car be examined by someone independent. They can establish the cause of the leak.,
If it is wear and tear then sadly you are liable for any cost.
If it is because the garage have caused damage then the garage is liable.
There are two options:
1) It may be just one of those things which is fair wear and tear
If it is wear and tear, that is it would have made no difference if it was in the garage it may have leaked anyway
2) They caused the damage whilst doing the repair.
You can therefore ask that you appoint a Court approved independent expert.
That expert will examine the vehicle and find what have caused it and whether they are liable.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
what about them starting the car with no oil in it this is were the damage would be made if there was no oil in the car they should not have started it . its not the cost of the leak its the damage to the engine running it with no oil
Yes I agree, but they wouldn't necessarily know I suspect that it had no oil.
But again if there has been damage caused the expert should pick this up
when they dipped the iol and found nothing on the dip stick they shoul not have started the engine
I agree. But again this can be dealt with in the report.
It does seem obvious not to start a car without oil
true there driver ckecked the oil when it was picked up after that the car was in there control i will insist on inspection as advised who do i talk to my insurance or the repair co
Yes indeed. It would appear there is a claim but you do need to get an expert report of the vehicle
You can use this in Court if it gets that far.
