It just happened to be a 1996 or 1995 Chevy 1500 pickup with a 4L60E automatic transmission, one that needed a replacement transmission. If you take a minute to read the above post you will catch up on why I am writing this post.
Note: This is not necessarily the same position that my boss or GotTransmissions.com would take, these are my personal feelings only.
After spending some time on the phone with the gentleman who owns the truck, then going over and examining the truck, and then going home and calling GotTransmissions.com myself for a price on a good used transmission, I only heard from my neighbor one more time. That actually was a call from his mechanic, who by the way seemed like a very nice person, who needed to know the procedure to flush out the transmission cooler.
I noticed this morning the truck was in his driveway, I wish him the best and sincerely hope he got a good job.
The point of this post is that a simple thank you means so much and is such a wonderful way to say I appreciate your time. For over 33 years now I have helped people out with transmission problems. For 26 years I was a paid professional and had to accept money as a reward in order to pay my shop bills. Although we gave away plenty of advise and diagnostics for free, and a thank you.
Since I sold my business 4 years ago, my advise is of no cost monetarily, and I don’t have any interest in rebuilding transmissions anymore. In fact I usually work and help out for food, kindness and appreciation now. I know I’m way off subject here, but a few years ago I painted my neighbors, on the north side, motorhome. I won’t go into the details, but they wanted to pay me money, I won’t accept money from them, all I really wanted was a nice BBQ rib dinner and some appreciation.
Rewards can be many things. Don’t forget to say thanks. Don’t forget that GotTransmissions.com is a company that receives lots of ”thank you’s” from their customers on a regular basis. In many cases customers call back to thank us and tell us their car has not run this well for years and they appreciate the good advise on transmission replacement. Call GotTransmissions.com @ 1-877-268-0884 and find out how much we can help you. Thank you, and have a nice day.
