Lord Warlock sounds to me like that shop is the only one in town and can do what it wants, if it were me, i'd find a shop elsewhere that knows how to provide decent customer service. My shop knows how to take care of a car that is dropped off for work, and they don't reuse oil, any shop that does is a shop to avoid. Also any shop that says they can scratch a car and not pay for it is one i'd stay wayyyy away from.

As to the other, who scrapped a car because of a timing chain failure, sounds like someone has other issues they need to deal with, its one thing to abandon a clunker that has no value, its another to scrap a car that is worth 15k without a motor. Reminds me of folks who parked their old cars in fields and left them to rot for 20 years only to find out later they'd parked valuable classics because gas prices went up from .25 cents to .50 cents a gallon, that were bringing in big dollars later on. At least we know not all of those type of thinkers are gone, a few live on.

That is the best yet, LMAO. I feel for you really I do, I once shot a car to death and had it crushed. I set a motorcycle on fire on the side of the road when it broke down, and I crushed a 77 true bandit trans am one of 500 made when the timing chain broke in it as well. I also crushed a 69 442 a few years ago after I destroyed every piece of trim on it. Everyone wanted me to give it to them, yet no one wanted to buy it for $500. So I crushed it for $50.

The guide wasn't chewed up. That's just oil and bad lighting/photography on the service guy's phone camera. The only issue I noticed with the tensioner and guider were grooves, which seemed like normal wear. I'm sure the new guide grooves too, but can't disintegrate because it has an aluminum body. (And yes. I run MDS as much as possible. May as well get the benefit of increased mileage on the HWY. I got the auto only cuz my wife can't drive stick. Sadly, she's driven the car once in 2 years and hates it because she can't see out of it and she's 5'6". My next one is a 6 speed.)

My guess is, they didn't want the job and were trying to discourage you so you would "just go away". That is what I would do, LEAVE and never go back to that dealer.

My 2010 was doing that too, and eventually the check engine light came on, and the car wouldn't go into MDS. Took it to my dealer, and had them check it out.

Testing showed that I had a faulty fuel sending unit, and they replaced it. Now the fuel gage goes down more evenly from F to E.

No problem since.
