After an oil change with my regular mechanic my older car was leaking a small amount of oil from the bolt on the oil pan, pretty obvious to find just by looking at it. Since my regular mechanic is 70 miles away, I take it to Pepboys to get it tightened up or the gasket changed so it stops leaking. They called a few hours later and told me that the oil pan is stripped and the whole thing will need a replacement...at the cost of hundreds of dollars. I took the rest of the day off to take the car to my mechanic to get a second opinion. The oil pan is not stripped, the gasket is just bad, anyone with a minimal amount of mechanical ability can tell when a bolt is stripped or not. He did an oil change, problem fixed. He also looked under the hood for me and found this:
1. The air filter housing was unbolted and open, the bolts were nowhere to be found.
2. The cover on the battery positive terminal was left off
3. Instead of just looking at it, they dumped greenish dye into my oil tank for a "leak evaluation", completely unnecessary, and made it impossible to re-use the oil, which we just put in there two weeks ago.
Keep in mind, my mechanic did a whole work up of the car two weeks ago, and none of this was an issue before Pep Boys touched it, it left them worse than when I brought it in, and they tried to charge me HUNDREDS FOR A PROBLEM THAT DIDN'T EXIST.
