sorry its been a while but i havnt had access to my 300d for a week now, A WEEK TOO LONG!!!<br>
<br>
now i am no mecanic, but when dropped it in he said about 6 hrs work in it, its been 8 days and he said that i will be another 3.<br>
<br>
the problem is.....<br>
i found after driving for 5 mins or longer then parking it on a 30 degree incline (nose up), a fair amount of oil came uot the bottom about half a litre in 3 hrs.<br>
<br>
same when the car is parked on the flat but not asmuch oil lost.<br>
<br>
he said at first that it was a small thing and that the labour was in taking out the gear box was 5 hrs of the total labour cost.<br>
<br>
well i recieved a call saying that its alot bigger<br>
<br>
he needs to take out the folowing to fix the problem:<br>
-the gear box<br>
-the engine<br>
- the aircon<br>
-the sump<br>
- i think the manafold too<br>
<br>
he said that the seal was made of rope and that it was gen ware and tare.<br>
<br>
my main worry is the cost <br>
if 6 hrs was gonna cost about $800 whats 9 days gonna do to the bank<br>
<br>
we only bought the thing for $2900<br>
<br>
i dont want to loose my baby............<br>
<br>
any comments please......<br>
thanks louis<br>
