We service all the county and city police/trooper vehicles. They always leave their AR and shotgun in there. But theirs is locked to the mount in the vehicle...

The customer was told by his tuner not to drive the car at all and tow it to a shop for adjustment before failure.
He only followed the towing part of the instructions 🤣

The heat exchanger failed. So engine coolant got into the transmission. Normally, a little bit is fine but when it is this bad there is no way it can be rebuilt without costing us more then a rebuild itself. There is also a lot of damage inside that is not shown in the pic. If it is going to cost more money then we sell the unit for it is worthless to us, so no core value.

Vehicle repeatedly stalled and then would not turn over. We found 7L of coolant in the oil and the crank is locked up tight. Installer admits to dropping a bolt but couldn’t find it.
Well, we found it.
