Yep, doesn’t make sense how such can occur.That’s what I’m a little confused about, a ‘pressure check’ is just that, It involves nothing more than putting a gauge on the valve. How that equates to a 25+lb loss of PSI, without any foreign bodies causing damage, escapes me.
Not doubting what you are saying, but it’s odd to say the least.
All I can think is the lead mechanic was out and the apprentices were instead joking about not paying any attention to their task at hand. Who knows, maybe those clowns put someone else’s wheels on my car... cause they did take them off to check the brakes... with lots of same model and year about...
But it highlights the silliness of what are probably rather lax processes that allow something to be ticked as done yet be so very wrong...
Another car and yet another dealer doing a scheduled service didn’t flush the coolant as required by the manufacturer. Their argument was it wasn’t required... my argument was that I payed for the book service and if they choose not to do it they can take full responsibility if there are any subsequent cooling issues. Rather unsurprisingly I had to wait while they drive the car back into the workshop and did their job...
It may be ok for us enthusiast as we can pull them up on such foibles but the average punter just doesn’t have a clue (which is why I hate blind box ticking processes)...
