I went in for an oil change. I had just purchased a 2000 Mercury Sable LS Premium that had been fairly well taken care of, and I didn't know when the last owner had gotten an oil change, so I wanted to make sure I took care of the car by getting one. However, within a few days after getting my car back, it was idling oddly, then a check engine light came on for fuel system too lean. I was shocked, and not sure what would cause the sudden change because the car was working fine before I brought it in. I found the vacuum leak in the back of the engine, a part was melted away, but with the engine on I could reach the part without burning myself, so I thought that was odd.
So I changed that part with a part I went straight to Ford to get. - I also changed the battery myself at Firestone's recommendation, but that has nothing to do with the issue I have, just including it because it happened - It drove well for a few minutes, but then the issue came back worse.
When the car is warmed up now, if it idles for too long, it jumps from 300 rpms to 700 rpms, however it almost always dies out. Which means there is another leak, that I'm struggling to find. I find it HIGHLY unlikely that the tech would tell me the engine "looks so clean" and then have it *** out on me like this like they're trying to damage my car so I have to come back in and spend more money to get things fixed.
I called Firestone customer support and then my local Firestone (lemont, illinois) called me today asking me to come in tomorrow to see if they can resolve the issue. I will comment my experience with them as soon as I'm done with them tomorrow. I'm just a teenager without much car experience who paid for the car and services myself and really don't have the money to deal with *** it seems like they did.
