The damage my car with a tow truck and they cut out my catalytic converter and told me to get rid of my car. There was nothing wrong to a prior coming to their garage. Rip off company we called police and made a report. Stay clear this company crooked

Very long story,short. Took my vehicle to fix transmission. They said 3 days. Found more things wrong. A few more days. They gave me a quote. Turned into 13 days taking cabs and renting a car 2 times. Told them I need my car unless you are going to reimburse me with something. Got my car back, just the transmission fixed. Quote they gave me, with tax, parts and labor was less than what I actually had to pay. That's with taking 150 dollars off for my troubles. Worst customer service ever. I would not reccomend this place to anyone.,

I had to put a star but would put zero stars. Took my car here on recommendation from a friend. New engine build olds 455 total rebuild. Got the car back put it in. Maybe ten miles oil leaking from intake call them up and he says I didn't do it. Paid him to fix it. Never beaten on this car maybe have 80 miles on it starts leaking again. Only this time the head gasket is leaking too! My mechanic at Darrels transmissions calls Steve Johnson at AMS and get this says to put stop leak in it!!!! Don't ever take you engine to these crooks!!!!

They had a 94 dodge ram for sale out in their parking lot and my boyfriend and I went in to look at. I asked multiple times if there was anything wrong with it and the technician told me no, it runs just fine and there was nothing wrong with it at all. Assuming that this was the truth because it was at an auto place I bought the truck. The first time my boyfriend drove it to work it broke down on the freeway and wouldn't start. I called this place asking for any sort of help and the owner did not care at all. He raised his voice on the phone with me told me nothing could be done because I already bought the truck and he just did not care at all. I am now out $1,500. I was told to bring it in and I would have to pay to fix it. Why would I pay them to fix a truck when it was their fault in the first place? The owner is so rude and didn't care about my experience with them at all. I was scammed by this place and you will be too. Thank you.
Tips & Advices
With the proper maintenance and adherence to driving within in the guidelines of engine performance designations, remanufactured engines can last 100,000 miles or more. With modern technology, engine lifespans have dramatically increased over the years. It is not uncommon for engines to last 200,000- 300,000 miles, or more--before a rebuild or remanufacture is even necessary.
While remanufactured and crate engines are very similar, there are several key differences. The biggest difference is that crate engines are as close to new as possible, without actually being new. Everything internal is replaced, which is not always the case with a remanufactured engine. Second, crate engines do not have to meet factory original specs. Some are upgraded to high performance engines through specialty shops. Crate engines are ready for immediate installation. These factors tend to make their price point higher than for a remanufactured engine. Adherence to factory specs is the biggest difference; remanufactured engines are required to (with some exceptions), crate motors are not.
Remanufactured engines nearly always come with a warranty. There may be exceptions, so it is important to learn the specifics of the auto shop. There is no reason for a shop to not offer a warranty on what is basically a new engine. While not getting a warranty would be rare, confirm the engine comes with a warranty prior to making any commitment.
All gasoline and diesel engines, with some exceptions, are eligible to be remanufactured. Old, rare and out-of-stock engines, engines with cracked or damaged blocks, and specialty engines are examples of engines that might not be eligible to be remanufactured. Also to be considered are parts availability and a mechanic’s knowledge of a particular engine.  Most modern and popular engines are eligible. Lower- end production and rare engines might require specialty shops that work in these areas.
The most commonly remanufactured engine is the inline four-cylinder gasoline engine. It is the most mass-produced engine in the world and is the primary power plant in the most popular cars in the world, like the Honda Civic, Volkswagen Golf, Toyota Corolla, and the Ford Focus. The next most common remanufactured engine is the straight, or “‘inline” six, a six cylinder that is a larger and more powerful engine popular in many smaller, light duty trucks, SUVs, and an engine option in the Toyota Camry. The popularity of these cars and these engines makes them the highest in demand for remanufacture.
