It's totaled bro... hope insurance comes through for you
Went in for an oil change 3 weeks ago because I had exams and no time to touch my car. I don't know what it says, but I imagine it's some ****head mech's name so he knows what he's fouled up in the past. On top of this he put in 5 quarts of oil (1.8ts take 4.6 quarts.)
I'm not sure what I can do about this. I had a few ideas, one of them would be to walk in the lobby and write my name on the wall in permanent marker. When questioned, I would say, "You wrote on my property, now I'm writing on yours", but that might get me arrested.
This thread is a sure sign of the apocalypse.
Do you have nothing more worthwhile to bitch about than someone "writing" on a part of a car that isn't visible externally?
You deserve a Golf R for that.
In reality, it might have some legit reason but I don't know what it would be.
Lately I have been testing "tip-in events". Just the tip-in. Just to see how it feels. Response time is typically on the order of 2-3 seconds. Sometimes the injection timing is a little off...
I have seen this before.

I work a Honda dealer and we get in cars all the time that have been done at Jiffy Lube, Midas, Grease Monkey etc. with tagging on the oil pans. Actually had some pretty interesting graffiti/art work on a few. Not sure why people have to do this to other peoples cars We always let our customers know so they can either go back and complain or not go back at all and just use us from then on. The worst is when we get in oil pans that have been stripped out by those places. Also we'll get cars in with temporary plugs like pictured below and they don't tell their customers about it then we have to break the bad news to them that they need a new oil pan because they didn't bring it to us in the first place. I know dealers are expensive but from personal experience it's best to do the job yourself or take it to an actual dealer, not some place that hires high school kids who don't give a crap/know anything about cars.
My boss had to spend 4 hours trying to get one of these out of an oil pan on an old Accord. They are one time use and suck, plus the places that use them don't usually tell their customers that they screwed up and had to use one so people usually find out the hard way when the have an oil leak from the plug.
Sorry to offend anyone on this forum that might work at those places. I know there are some people at those places that take their job serious and do a good honest job but from personal experience I have seen a lot of low quality work come from quick lube places.
Some people are super weird about stuff like that.
I never knew who it was, but someone who was employed by the last place I worked at used to write 'FAH' on say a quality sign off, then 'Q' somewhere else. There were random boxes with FAH Q written all over the building, and parts shipped to customers with this message somewhere on them (sometimes he wrote it inside the part where no one would look etc).
Some people write their own name on bathroom walls, or carve stupid little pictures or jokes for others to enjoy.
People are weird occasionally. I would do nothing, clean it off... and never... ever go back to that oil change shop.
At least it wasn't one of the usual "left a quickie lube place, 10 blocks later my engine seized" stories.
