This is my first review ever. I really performed a very stupid mistake. In my attempt to change my oil and filter on my 2000 Montero. I crawled under neath and drained the Transmission fluid thinking it was the Engine oil pan.
I then put back in another 4 1/2 qts of engine oil in the engine. After checking the Engine oil dip stick, I realized it was overfilled. By how much, I didn't know at the time. I started the vehicle up to circulate the oil. It still showed overfilled. I put it into gear to test drive for leaks. It would go into gear and right back out. Thinking...oh great, the transmission is acting up. I shut the engine down and I called Lee Myles transmission after searching local internet. He couldn't help me over the phone but, for a $85 tow and a $98 insp.fee, he would advise me of the problem. Well, he called me back and said I needed a new transmission. I didn't even know at that moment that I was the one who drained the transmission. It was when I got it back that I had to correct a smoking engine from being overfilled with an additional 4-1/2 qts of oil. That's when I realized what a stupid mistake I had made earlier by draining the Transmission.
YOU might think twice about taking your vehicle to Lee Myles Auto care and Transmission. That stupid mistake did not cost Lee Myles a total of $2200.00...So much for that $98.00 inspection fee!
