    I just looked at the receipt from the clutch job.....has wrong vin of truck....wrong year and miles. I also looked at 3 other receipts from the same place on other jobs.....all truck info is correct. Something isn't right

    Forget the other 4 mechanics you took it to.
    If it started right after the clutch job, why didn't
    You take it back to the place that screwed it up
    As soon as you knew something was wrong.
    8 months later is ridiculous.

    I took it back.....afterwards....he just put computer on it and said no issues just like everyone else. If he did screw me.....I don't think he'd te me anything different.

    Nobody else thought of checking serial # until a few days ago.

    I’d never laugh. I know it happens.
    Friend of mine had a m22 4speed “swapped” out for a m21 in his ‘69 Vette at an upolstery shop once.
    I’ve seen and heard of things getting swapped out on big trucks all the time. The one with me was a factory radio with cd player. Same radio. But my cd worked and the one they “swapped” in didn’t. They even preset all my stations and set clock. The way i new it wasn’t mine was the date tag on back of radio was after my truck was built and I already had it. This happened at a Freightliner shop too. As usually the case couldn’t proove it.

    Sounds to me like someone wanted an od trans and the ops truck had what they were looking for.

    They can pull the switcheroo easy and in the same amount of time it takes for a clutch replacement even if a guy could do it in an hr. They pull your trans out to do clutch and just roll it to the side. Roll the “replacement” which most likely was sitting on the floor in storage already anyway, but even if not it just goes back up with the new clutch. Lickady split. Nothing hard about it.

    Never thought about how easy someone could
    Do this.
    Especially if they know what their doing.

    Rented uhaul many times.
    They never check the motor when you
    Return it.

    I don’t know if that was real or not, but I’m sure someone will do it now. Lol.
