A location would be helpful. Or posting the the Rockies regional forum .

EDIT: Tapatalk strikes again. I couldn't see your whole location, just the Grand Junction part. I'm guessing Houston then. That's what I get for trying to be a smartass.

I use John's Express Lube on Bissonnet. Been using them for years. They are changing a motor for me right now. Good luck and tell your boobie to quit staring at me. It's not polite.

I retract my suggestion to use John's Express Lube. This motor replacement has been a fiasco.

On initial inspection the mechanic had not secured the air filter cover, had cut wires under the hood and not spliced them back, and left off the fan shroud. (The wires should have never been cut.) After leaving the car for an additional day, I picked it up to find that the battery and some other parts under the hood were not secured. Also the windows would not work.

Some mechanics are better than other and it's all in how the shop deals with the problem that counts, so the manager told me to bring the car to him and he would see it was fixed. The shop secured the battery and other loose items then promised to fix the windows by replacing a bad motor and regulator for the cost of parts. After another trip to the shop the car was returned and the windows were not fixed correctly.

Anyway, you may get a good tech who fixes your car correctly. I did for several years. But if you don't, getting it right may not happen. I'm really surprised at the continued failures. Caveat Emptor.
