Is the place Toy Doctor? I'll be steering clear of that place. Sheesh!

Yes it was toy doctor. I went in there yesterday to get the owners number. The guy asked me if i had replaced the motor. I told him that he lied to me and all it needed was a valve adjustment and now it runs great. Then i asked him about the hole in my cylinder and he had no answer. Also would not give me the owners number... so i will find it on the Internet. I plan on getting a refund. I'm still passed about this.

Years ago, my '89 4Runner had been 'meticulously maintained' by the Toy Doctor, including documented valve adjustments, according to the PO. I checked the valves right after purchase, and one was being held open, with low compression on that cylinder. I adjusted the valve (hugely) and the compression came back (whew!). But, I had a new thought on the 'professional mechanics' at that shop.
