hey guys, just wanted to update my story haha, well blew up, ie connecting rod was laying under my transmisson pan, piston blew, changed the oil 4 times inside of 6 10k miles since new rod bearings, rod bearings were also laying there just looking at me connecting rod bolts one sheered and one bent then sheered ill update with pics, Iam mainly posting this so that anyone who had there rod earings changed by alex auto in norcross ga will get theres inspected before the same happen, I heard a ticking noise about 5 oo miles afterchange and called multiple times and was told its in your heads etc or vanos blah bs so i send a video and he is worried i set up a time to deliver the car and he states he is out of town, Note not once did he advise not to drive or stop the operation. there was no loss of power or idle issues. Been off the road for about 2 months and iam seeking legal action. He lied to me guys!!!!! he stated he would inspect the motor and find reason for failure o took the car to him it sat for two weeks and he had me remove the car with out any inspection. I ended up paying alex a total of 2,700 dollars when i left with my car and that money spent well too bad my car EXPLODED in second gear about 40 MPH $UCK!!!!!!! NEED A USED MOTOR any help Come on guys i need it !!!!!
i replaced my rodbearings for preventative maintinence and less than 10k miles after i had the work done the motor flew apart ha, so much for peace of mind sorry to all that i recommended this work Note my car was the first car/ Rodbearing job alex did and he will not own up to any of this he renigged on paying to have it inspected and if found at fault he would replace the engine. I asked for that in writing and he said and i quote "sue me"
Did you ever post a video/sound clip? I always thought members here advocates stopping driving immediately in case of suspected rod bearing issue. Sounds like horrible customer service but needs to hear both sides of story. Good luck sorting it.

that was the initial promise, that he would take responsibility byt he didnt even have time so he says to look at it what a joke he needs to be kicked off the board for misreprentation and being a liar and and unethical business PERIOD, . no mayyer how this is looked at by the time there was a knock the pistion or cylynder walls were damaged ie new block, crank was prollu damaged as well and just a crank and blo0ck would require 10 k for crank 6k-8k for block, new pistions and connecting rods so there was no rescue or saving the otor once failure began as he tried to make me believe
