Dehn’s Automotive Prior Lake Minnesota

Complaint: So I was looking to get my truck that hadn’t been running in a while back to running condition. So I had taken it to this shop by referral, which didn’t end up to be a good one. What I initially wanted to do was just rebuild my motor. Then the guy said I would be better off just putting in another motor. He said to call back in a few days after I think about what I want to do. When I called back, he said that him and his buddies were talking and that I should just do a v8 swap. I agreed, as I wanted to do this for a long time( the truck is a 93 chevy S10). We then talked about what motor I should put in the truck. I had wanted to put a 350 in, but they had talked me up to this 305 they had. They claimed it was a four bolt 305( which they don’t make a 4 bolt 305) He claimed it had a nice cam in it, and they had been through the whole motor themselves, so they know it wont give me any issues and will run for a long time. So we had agreed on 2500 out the door. So once we decided on the price, he said he would start as soon as I put some money down. I then drove over to his shop right away and paid him 1000.00 of the money. He told me the job would take 2-3 weeks. I then called once a week to check how the progress was. Every time I talked to him, there was always something else going on. If I couldn’t get ahold of him, I would go check on the truck myself. Almost every time I went up there, My truck would be sitting outside not being worked on. He would be working on other vehicles or messing around with a boat a buddy brought in. He was supposed to be done on the 6th of june. When June 6th came, I went in there with my father to pick the truck up. Well then he got mad, and said I had been rushing him. This is 4 weeks after he had the truck. He then said he just needed a little bit longer to get it running perfect. 3 days later I called him, and he said he was having issues with the radiator, and it would be a little longer. I just didn’t call him assuming that he would call when he was done. finally 2 weeks go by, and I call him to ask what was going on. He then says the truck is running and I can come pick it up. When I arrived the truck was able to be started, but had exhaust leaks all over the place. He then blamed that on my exhaust. The truck had no power, and could barely drive down the road. I drove it about a mile away, and could smell anti freeze, and fuel. So I drove it back, and parked it back at his shop. I then told him it wasn’t running right, and he said. “Well I put the motor in
