I dont post on here often but read on the reg. I had a very funny now situation happen to my 2012 3500 while on vacation. We left Gettysburg PA (home) for a road trip to see the in laws in Phoenix AZ. While we were in Phoenix the oil change came do. Now I had done the first one myself this was the second oil change the truck has needed. Knowing my father in law there was no way I was going to approach the subject of changing the oil at his house. So thinking that I didn't want to pay dealer prices I took it to walmart (never ever ever do that). I also thought that if something happens they are a national chain and would make it right (yes they did). So after a long conversation with the tech about how I wanted my oil changed I waited about 45 mins and it was done. I drove about 30mi around town. Then my wife took it to the grocery store and when she came out there was a puddle of oil under the truck. I had her check the dipstick and start the truck check oil pressure. Both were good and the store was only 2 blocks away so I had her bring it back. Called walmart went apeshot on the phone and was told to have it towed to a dealer and if the dealer found walmart responsible they would reimburse me. The dealer told me that the truck was overfilled and the wrong filter was used thats why it was leaking. They performed a proper oil change and guaranteed me that nothing was wrong with the truck. So off to walmart I go with their reciept of $75 and the dealers for $100 and the tow bill of $37. The nice lady at walmart gave me $302 cash and a $25 gift card. Dont know how she did her math but I wasnt going to complain. Back home now and confident that no one will ever work on my truck again except the dealer. Morale stands proven you get what you pay for. P.S. at least it was a Dodge Ram tow truck lol.
