Re: South Houston Engine Service
I had an engine installed from them about 6 years ago, and it leaked oil constantly. I am just now getting it resealed and the people up here told me that they used cheap silicone to seal the oil pan, and that they just cut a section of the dipstick off to make it fir, artifically indicating my engine had more oil then it did. The leaks started almost immediately, and they would not cover it under their warranty.
The guys up here in Austin that are working on my truck have had MANY dealings with junk coming out of that shop, and don't do business with them. They mentioned motors coming from there with a mix of .30 over with stock pistons. I wish I would have known this before I used them. Hopefully this is not the case with this motor I bought from them. I have had it for 6 years, but have only put about 35,000 on the truck in this time. Time will tell, I guess.
