It was in a little quantity, will it start causing rust and stuff? Currently the cooling system had 0 rust and very little white deposits...
You are right it is premixed with water but in a sense, Sk_KingpiN is right. He should have at least used distil water
This weekend i got 4 wheel brake service from honda classic, they did not use silicone grease. It was an unknown brand grease bottle laying around cap-less on their working table.
Not that i am in favour of autoclub because i haven't been to them but i have been going to honda classic since day 1 and for the past year their service quality has decreased drastically.
In the radiator service job, they were unable to get the radiator out of car. As if the mechanic had never done it before. They then called another mechanic then another and finally they removed battery, its seating plate and then it came out. Had they been professional, they would already know how to take things apart is such congested engine bay of civic 05. I asked mechanic that new civic is coming so are you guys going to get training? he said only supervisor go for two day training. Its not even needed as everything is same. I said there is a new engine with turbo so it is different but he kept saying all engines are same. Only one or two mechanics there are good, rest all have skill and approach of any road side mechanic. I asked a senior mechanic that shocks make air bubbles like noise on high jumps, what is the issue? he said service k waqt neche tail lagva lia karen. Can you image a honda dealership mechanic saying that?
Then when they fitted radiator back. I cleared the payments and started going for my home, on first jump on the road. There was a khar khar khar noise from engine bay. I took it back to them (it was already 3pm, their chutti time) and showed it to their supervisor, he said its the shocks noise. I said it was not coming before i got the job done. Then they said to come on monday.
On the weekend i tested and inspected the noise myself. I found out that one fan was not seated properly. The plastic of second radiator fan was stuck with the engine bay metal bracket (this indicates radiator is not aligned properly). Then i went down the car and saw that one of the rubbing mountings was broken. It was not broken when they fixed the radiator back, this again indicates that radiator was not aligned properly.
On monday another mechanic came along with two previous ones, he seemed to have some knowledge on fixing it (hes the guy who said that tail lagva lia karen) as he took the lead on process. They loosened everything and put it back, i asked them to install new rubber mount but they just tapped (nito tape) it and put it back. Thank fully this time there were no sounds on jumps.
Then there was another time i got my compressor pulley job done from Aqash, one of their very senior mechanic in honda and known to many here. Other honda mechanics call him aqash bhai and he is usually called up by them when they cannot fix something. So the pulley was making noise, i wanted him to open the pulley so that we can inspect and change bearing if required. He went with the typical approach of hammer. He kept hammering the pulley with a flat screw driver and obviously it slipped many times and hit the groves inside pulley (where belt sits). The pulley wouldn't come out so after like 15mins of trying, he went to shop in front and brought pulley puller (those who don't know, google it) using that tool, the pulley came off easily. The price of kabli pulley alone is 1000-1500 and he ruined the pulley just because of carelessness and bad approach to a problem. After this incident i never went back to him for any job. I still meet him now and then in dealership, lol wo bhi sochta hoga k mujse kam kun nahi karata
Read my post above regarding their pro radiator service. They charged 4000 to just open up a radiator, send it to some contractor shop in khayban and fit it back in. There is another question what sort of quality work did the contractor do? The radiator came back in an hour btw... I asked their supervisor that what is the use of just cleaning the radiator when you are not opening heater coils, thermostat valve, not even the drain bolt on engine block. They said it is not needed and we don't do that bla bla. They did not even run water through system once so that debris can flush out. And as mentioned by Sk_KingpiN, their mechanic put in like 200ml of tap water in radiator. Not even distill water.... this is their professionalism. All the things mentioned in this para are not my wishes, its what the service manual states.
The professionalism, for which we like to pay more than road side mechanics is gone from honda mechanics.
I am seriously thinking to buy tools myself and do such basic jobs on my own. The only advantage they have are the high rise hydraulic lifts
