Installed my lift and got everything aligned. All was good but noticed I had some lights on after the lift. Then I got UCAs, here starts problems. Somewhere in install a speed sensor got screwed up but visually looked ok. Replugged in and same lights on dash still on. VSC and ABS. Schedule appt with Westbury Toyota to get Zero Point Calibration.

0800 today.
Tell the guy all I want is the ZPC and oil change. I ask how much it will be. He tells me $125 just for ZPC. I have Toyota Total Care so oil changes are free. I then tell him I know people (here) who have gotten the ZPC done for as little as free and for still only as much as $90ish. He then tells me he can do it for $100.

0900
After decent wait service guy comes in. First pronounces my name incorrectly and not anything close. Alright whatever, he then says diagnostics is going to have to be done because ABS light is on. Alrighty shouldnt need to be done prolly on because ZPC needs to be done. Whatever just do it.

Another hour and another wrong saying of my name. Go out to lift where mech is working and they start to lower it. Me: I know what you are going to show me before you lower it. Mech: well i gotta replace this Speed sensor its all bad. Me: How much? Mech: points to service guy: $320. Me: Sh!t:flame: ok just do it.

Get rental from them sweet. Matrix S AWD even better. Drive off and tearing it up. Had to stop by work and then wifes work to get some keys.

Get home and notice a burning smell. Get out and inspect the car. Smoke coming from under vehicle. Pop hood and see oil everywhere on engine block. Check levels, EMPTY. Last ahole driving this thing broke something.

Back at dealer getting Highlander Hybrid rental.

Will post Conclusion when I get truck back hopefully tomorrow.

What a day. And I just got off my regular 24hr shift at 0730. lol
Moral: Speed sensors are DELICATE. Dont trust dealer rentals.
