    I have an appt for service on monday.

    when i went to get the oil changed,i told them about the weird grinding noise the car makes at idle...how it pulses with each rotation of the pulleys or belt...or whatever it does...i know others here have had the same issue..and have even got it on video...and others have had their a/c compressors replaced and the noise went away....but of course it didnt make ther noise that day....

    so today it was,so i took it in...and a service rep even heard it....finally...so its going in mon morning...i brought up the issue that people are having with the a/t trans...and he described exactly what everyone says...then procedes to say.." thats how they normally operate"...bs...so i then said..really??..so i then said..the trans messing up..and working like crap is normal??...he just looked at me...i just laughed and said..gmill have to come up with a better line of bs to feed to people cause that doesnt fly.

    Hey, let me know how the pulsation noise abatement turns out. Allen Tillery replaced my A/C compressor (at least they said they did) but it didn't do any good for my car. If it's the same noise I hear, you can make it stop almost instantly by turning on the A/C - even at its weakest setting.

    If your dealer actually fixes yours I might have to drive to Benton and visit your dealer. Is it Lander's?

    While I don't disagree with you, being a jerk to the service people will gain you nothing and just makes you look bad.

    i went to crain....and i wasnt being a jerk...i just hate when service people try to bs me...**** i prob know more about the cars than he does...id rather talk to the shop foreman..at least he is honost and doesnt bs me.....like when the service rep said that its normal for the trans on these cars to slip...and rev to 5k before shifting and such.....so does that mean there is something wrong with my trans...sence it doesnt do anything like that...heck mine is sooth..usually i dont even feel when it shifts...
    as for the vibration/pulse thing...ill know some time tomorrow..and hopefully the shop manager will be there..and i can just talk to him...rather than service people.....heck i used to sell cars for crain...i know what goes on there...
