Perhaps the threads were stripped out and they put it back properly, but it then failed? You got bent over by your Subaru dealership. hey everyone, I recently gave my sister my old wrx and she has taken it to jiffy lube twice for oil changes since then. Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors... During August of 2006, i went to the Walmart SuperCenter in my area, and asked for an oilchange.

My fiance' and I went in to McDonalds to get a bite to eat, and walked around the store to take up time. Anyway the managers/advisers frowned upon us doing stuff like oversizing, machining etc because there was not much money to be made in it plus if you didn't so it right it was grounds for the customer to screw you. As for OP, you should have contacted wal mart as soon as you found the problem, before any work was done. There's no way WalMart is going to compensate you for $620. ._1PeZajQI0Wm8P3B45yshR{fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-actionIcon)}._1PeZajQI0Wm8P3B45yshR._3axV0unm-cpsxoKWYwKh2x{fill:#ea0027} They ARE NOT ASE certified in anything! yeah only real recourse would have been to take it back to walmart when it was leaking and complain, let them find the drain plug problem and then fix ti on their nickle. THE EMPLOYEE NOTED ON MY RECIEPT THAT THE GUYS THAT FIXED MY CAR KEPT IT AS LONG AS THEY DID BECAUSE THEY WERE HIDING THE FACT THAT THEY MESSED UP MY VEHICLE. At most you're looking at $50 from a decent shop to do the job for you. Someone in my small town had something similar happen to them. Tire & Lube Express (Express is a joke some days) is horrible for oil changes. At my last oil change I noticed the drain plug would no longer hold any torque and upon further investigation found that the hole had no threads left. Consumers love to do business with someone that can admit mistakes and state how they made improvements. Of course, if you take it back to Jiffy Lube, they might strip that one too. If the threads are completely stripped it can even lead to the drain plug not fitting at all which would leave your engine completely empty of oil and unable to be ran. The store initially denied liability but finally fessed up that it was their fault. A while back the Walmart Lube Center stripped my oil pan and put a temporary plug in without telling me a thing about it. ._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ{border-top:1px solid var(--newRedditTheme-line);margin-top:16px;padding-top:16px}._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ ._2NbKFI9n3wPM76pgfAPEsN{margin:0;padding:0}._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ ._2NbKFI9n3wPM76pgfAPEsN ._2btz68cXFBI3RWcfSNwbmJ{font-family:Noto Sans,Arial,sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:400;line-height:21px;display:-ms-flexbox;display:flex;-ms-flex-pack:justify;justify-content:space-between;margin:8px 0}._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ ._2NbKFI9n3wPM76pgfAPEsN ._2btz68cXFBI3RWcfSNwbmJ.QgBK4ECuqpeR2umRjYcP2{opacity:.4}._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ ._2NbKFI9n3wPM76pgfAPEsN ._2btz68cXFBI3RWcfSNwbmJ label{font-size:12px;font-weight:500;line-height:16px;display:-ms-flexbox;display:flex;-ms-flex-align:center;align-items:center}._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ ._2NbKFI9n3wPM76pgfAPEsN ._2btz68cXFBI3RWcfSNwbmJ label svg{fill:currentColor;height:20px;margin-right:4px;width:20px}._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ ._4OtOUaGIjjp2cNJMUxme_{-ms-flex-align:center;align-items:center;display:-ms-flexbox;display:flex;-ms-flex-pack:justify;justify-content:space-between;padding:0;width:100%}._3Qx5bBCG_O8wVZee9J-KyJ ._4OtOUaGIjjp2cNJMUxme_ svg{display:inline-block;height:12px;width:12px}.isInButtons2020 ._4OtOUaGIjjp2cNJMUxme_{padding:0 12px}.isInButtons2020 ._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F{font-family:Noto Sans,Arial,sans-serif;font-size:12px;font-weight:700;letter-spacing:unset;line-height:16px;text-transform:unset}._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F{--textColor:var(--newCommunityTheme-widgetColors-sidebarWidgetTextColor);--textColorHover:var(--newCommunityTheme-widgetColors-sidebarWidgetTextColorShaded80);font-size:10px;font-weight:700;letter-spacing:.5px;line-height:12px;text-transform:uppercase;color:var(--textColor);fill:var(--textColor);opacity:1}._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F._2UlgIO1LIFVpT30ItAtPfb{--textColor:var(--newRedditTheme-widgetColors-sidebarWidgetTextColor);--textColorHover:var(--newRedditTheme-widgetColors-sidebarWidgetTextColorShaded80)}._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F:active,._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F:hover{color:var(--textColorHover);fill:var(--textColorHover)}._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F:disabled,._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F[data-disabled],._1ra1vBLrjtHjhYDZ_gOy8F[disabled]{opacity:.5;cursor:not-allowed} i took the bill to walmart auto center to … Ripoff Report has an exclusive license to this report. https://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/walmart/antioch-tennessee-37013/walmart-walmart-oil-and-lube-stripped-oil-plug-messed-up-motor-denied-claim-proof-on-r-257780.
