Lightbulb Mr Lube MORONS!!!

Took my car to Mr Lube for an oil change. Normaly i do it myself at my couzin's shop but he was tied up. However my oil cap was leaking a bit, im assuming the rubber gasket was shot.

Anyways they changed the oil and they wanted to reaset the oil lights on the display. ****ing MORONS. took them over an hour. they didnt knwo what to do, and then some idiot starts playing with the two buttons on the odometer and changes my temperature reading to Fahrenheit.

Im so pissed, told him to get the **** out my car. Im goign back there on friday to talk to the General Manager.

Do you guys know how to change this back to Celsius???

1. Push and hold odo reset button when the car is off
2. Put in your key and turn it on and then let go of the button

that's why I can never recommand Mr Lube, you can ask Chris de la Cruz about the horror stories and the major screw ups they've done.

that's the problem with those shops, they hire people with 0% experiance, even when I went to my 1st semester in college for automotive, we had so many shit talkers there syaing they can do this & do that, by the time the semester was over they all failed, and from what I heard some failed again after retrying the 1st semester, those same people probably work at Mr. Lube or Speedy.

Haha... that's funny. But I guess it goes to show that some people are cut out for it, and others are not. Usually the ones that talk the loudest are the ones that know the least...

When I got there i came out of my car to watch them work, and the guy tells me to go sit in the car...and offers me a coffee lol. I mention at least three times to ensure that they put on a brand new rubber gasket on the cap. Luckily i was watching them through the open space of the hood and what do you know, the guys starts putting the cap back on with the OLD gasket. Faaack! Mean while the guy kept telling me "Oh don’t worry I work on these cars all the time) - **** you bitch! i hope you see this thread!
