I recently had some suspension work done (on my 02 Odyssey) by a 'friend with a connection' and I got the van back, not only is the rattle noise still there, but the engine looks brand new. He told me that they gave me an engine shampoo and an oil change too, all for $400. Including shocks & struts all around. I took it to a 'real' mechanic shop and he opened the hood for a minute, I noticed the bar code is scratched off the engine. (didn't mention it to the mechanic at the time.)
Just wondering if there's a way to make sure this is in fact my engine, or if I should be contacting the police about my 'friend'.
