Damaged my car from Walmart

1176 of 4959 Walmart reviews

10/11/15 I had oil changed from Walmart Supercenter. The guy suggested I should also get a fuel injection fluid. After the service they did I started my car the the "Check" engine light turned on, so I told the guy from Walmart to take a look he then told me that they don't handle and fix those codes came out from my engine. And told me I should go to auto shop. So then I took my car to "Cool Running Repair" auto shop. The mechanic told me that Walmart auto shop "the thing that was poured in the fuel tank caused the contamination of the fuel and screwed up the pump. He also said the light wasn't on before the oil pan was damaged"

After the guy from (Niel Morrison) Cool Running Repair fixed my car I went back to Walmart and brought my receipts from the Cool Running Repair and the receipt from Walmart and I told the store manager his name is Jeremiah Wood, he then said "that there's has nothing to do about the damaged when they did the oil changed and poured the fuel injection fluid in fuel tank.

The oil changed and fuel injection from Walmart cost me $55.88. BUT the damaged Walmart did I spent $475.55 to fixed my car. The store manage didn't refund me,so now the next step I will do is to file a complaint to Better Business Bureau... Walmart Auto Shop don't care if they damaged your card and they won't tell you if there's something wrong with your car.

I learned my lesson I will never go to Walmart Auto Shop ever again..

DO NOT EVER GO TO WALMART FOR CAR SERVICE. Just got ripped off today. I went to walmart to get an oil change. After 1 and half hour, they told me that they are denying me the service because they could not drain the oil because of damage in the oil pan. While I was waiting , I saw that they were doing something on my car for a long time. I suspected some wrong doing. So, later I checked the oil and the oil was new/clean oil. So, I realized that Walmart changed may oil and damaged the oil pan. Now oil is leaking as well. I went to the manger and he told that they did not do anything on my car. So, I asked them if they did not do anything, how did I get new engine oil on my car?, then they called another supervisor and talked behind the door and came up with another explanation. Now they are saying that they put a little bit of oil in my car, which is why the oil is clear. Such a lie. I can’t believe that I have spent thousands of dollar in this store over the years.

Walmart has a fuel injection treatment made by valvoline. "The thing that they poured in your tank." is no different from one you would buy right off of the shelf I've gotten it done a few times to my car with no adverse effects. Sounds like the mechanic took advantage of your lack of knowledge. I'm sure they will appreciate your continuing patronage.

Well, before you file that complaint you better learn a bit more about how a car engine works and what its ECU's Check Engine indicator means.
Now, the nature of Walmart injector cleaning process will, quite often, set off a MIL code - typically a mis-fire on one or more cylinders. It is normal, harmless, and quite common in under maintained vehicles. It will clear itself automatically after about 100 miles of driving.
Oh, wait, what was that $475.55 for again? Seems to me your mechanic saw you coming, and so did the Store Manager.

Of course the store manager did not refund you, he saw through your scam. Good for him for not falling for your scam. Perhaps you can try the same scam at another chain?
