    I think the sign should read when you breakdown we screw up.

    Had a wheel seal replaced and it was over tighten and not backed off. About 100 miles later I have a red hot hub.
    T/A is paying the repairs, including axle surgeon, hub, axle ,oil change. But it cost me To keep my escorts and a day late to deliver. I will be talking to corporate .

    I’ll have to assume you had no other options but to go there?

    That's really effed up.

    It's hard to believe they have someone doing that kind of repair that just doesn't understand what to do.

    It's not that complicated.

    That's why I stay away from TA/Petros/Love's shops like a devil from holy water. They will break more than they can fix.

    I’ve been getting my oil changed at speedco and I don’t think my nerves can take another round. They struggle with everything they do and over grease everything they touch.

    Speedco filled the coolant filter with oil and installed it. Luckily i saw them do it and stopped him before he started truck. You have to watch every move they make I guess.

    Makes you wonder if they even filled the hub to the top with oil.
