i think i got screwed..

yea well a little over a month ago i went and got my water pump and timing chain and timing chain cover fixed on my truck at a local shop yea well i was just having fun going out to the movies last night and i got a phone call from a friend saying my truck was steaming and dumping water so guess what it went out again... after about 3k miles..



so who thinks i should go raise all mortal hell and drive a steaming truck up their and either demand for a full refund or at least enough to were i can fix it myself or just demand for them to fix it!! because it is ridiculous that something that was just fixed just breaks all of a sudden again!?

check your fan clutch, if you have a bad fan clutch it will lock up the water pump shaft and snap it. I put a new WP in mine but had a bad fan clutch and less then 50 miles it was leaking again. but mine was REAL bad.

Ya dude, go there and tell them to ****ing fix it. If it failed because of their crappy work, demand that they fix it or give you a refund. Did you get like a receipt when you were done?

Take it back let them fix it for free. If they screw it up again take it to a ford dealer let them do the repair work and then send the bill and letter from a lawyer back to the original shop.
