Ever got your car back from the mechanic and been suspicious about where they looked and if parts have been changed.?

Spray your engine with a UV liquid before then a UV lamp will show which parts have been changed and where hands have adjusted areas.

       Once the mechanics catch on, auto shops will start to take on a massage parlor appearance as they put their hands all over everything (and charge extra for it).

       I think you need a different massage parlor...   

       Even when they put the old parts in the boot (common practice in you area?), I'm still suspicious and look for the changes in dust and so on. This is a very sneaky idea. Won't they get a surprise when they look for a coolant leak!

       yes, 21quest when i contest being overcharged for repairs to an indicator i frequently strip my engine to the short block to verify if they also elected to do major unrequested and unpaid engine molestation. if i don't check this i can't sleep at night, those fingerprints on the head gasket must be cleaned off. Sometimes I have to check the pintles on my fuel injectors lest some sneaky person has touched them while my car was parked downtown.
