question and its a fun one

Recommended Posts

so i have a 1994 se pathfinder shes dead jim very dead well not true she runs just does not drive. so last year got a new transmission for her. put it in no problem. not in march the line blew off had that fixed. next thing that happened was the pan gasket went on the transmission. they fixed for free under warranty. now here we are that was in augst i had the pan gasket done the transmission came with a 100k 3 year warranty. so now here we are the transmission is dead the reason is they tell me is that the a few bell housing bolts loosed up and that cause the trany to shifted and made the pump hit the torch converter so because the bolts were loss they wont fix it. now its been a long time since i have worked on a car but my question is that even possible. i mean i know that the trany is bolted to a cross member and to the motor they also claimed that the skid plate bolts that were missing cause it too. so the question is can loose bell housing bolts really cause that. and if any oen on here knows this really well any one want come look at mine and see what they think. i am in bothell

I have never had bell housing bolts loosen. Sounds like an improper install to me. Also, ALL of the bolts would have to be very loose for anything to move enough to cause internal interference and, even then, I would not think that would happen.

So you took it to a trans shop and the bolts backed out on their own work, and now they don't want to honor their warranty?

No this is not possible. If anything, it would be the turbine in the torque converter, not the pump. The pump is solidly connected to the torque converter case, which is solidly connected to the flywheel.

 

As others have said, nearly all the bellhousing bolts would need to be loose, but even then the tranny and motor mounts should hold things close enough. Also, the skid plate has nothing to do with it, skid plates are not structural.

 

They are feeding you a line.

You need to speak with an attorney

 

If they performed the work and left the said items which caused the failure in the state which caused the failure then they are responsible. Unless of course you asked that the state be left as such..

 

Your probably going to have to sue.. if you ask that something be taken care of and they aren't honoring their promise then STOP speaking to them immediately and go to an attorney for advice on your options.
