We’ve been dead af lately so we let him search for about a half hour before we all decided to use our free time to completely clean out the storm drain. Lube tech was still looking as we scooped years of neglect out of the drain, & we waited until we were all done to tell him the bolt was never missing.

Between 20 flat rate technicians and 4 express techs, they unfortunately had to let the express techs go. And 5 of the flat rate techs took vacation that my company does not pay for, you have to use your own PTO/Sick days. Our dealership is operating at just barely 40% compared to normal.

It’s the valve body on a 15 forester. Our best guess is either someone put some foreign fluid in it or the trans cooler leaked coolant into the tranny. Either way shits fucked. Lady had us just bolt it back up and she “drove it” away.

We also put a used trans in 120k ago against our advice of going reman and she has not once changed the fluid. She was mad that we weren’t covering the bill on the trans we put in.

This went through two techs over 2 days and multiple random parts before I got it and found this in 30 minutes. Such a satisfying feeling to “win” against the machine.

The really stupid part of this is my dealership does free oil changes for new cars purchased here. She sludged up her engine putting off a free oil change.
