OCALA, TENNESSEE -- I bought a motor for my Jeep Grand Cherokee. From the first mile it was junk. I called and called, nobody would honor the warranty. Titan Engines sent my Mechanic a cam kit, to fix the ticking problem. After we put the cam kit in. I got 160.1 miles on the motor. Coolant was leaking into the block. I called again. A rude dude named Matt told me to ship them the motor. Then they would see what the problem is, then tell how much it would cost to fix it. Keep in mind Titan Engines has a 3 year warranty w/ unlimited miles. Why should I pay for any repairs??? They even stuck my mechanic on putting in a new cam kit!!!
Lucky for me the motor break down happened so fast, I never mailed my warranty in. On the back of the warranty is a CLAIM RESOLUTION. That says you won't sue them in real court. So I go to the Marion County Court House and file a Law Suit against them. Well, come to find out TITAN ENGINES is really not the company's REAL NAME!!! MOTOR PARTS of OCALA is their real name (sunbiz.com). The Registered Agent is JAMES ** (In case anybody needs to sue them, this info took me and a lawyer 2 hours to find out. Shell company after another).
Court day comes around. No one from Titan Engines shows up. I get a default judgment. You would think this is the end, but no!!! They get a lawyer to ask for a "Do Over" because the Registered Agent could not read a simple summons. The Judge upholds his Default Judgement. I start to collect, the lawyer files the same motion, same reasons to Set Aside my Default Judgement. After the 15 day filing deadline. I'm still in legal limbo.
Best thing you can do is buy a motor off of someone else. I see by the post above, a DRUNK or NERVOUS person more than likely assembled my junk engine. It's been over a year, I still haven't got my money. I guess I'm going to have the Sheriff Seize their bank account...
OCALA -- Well basically, I was hired onto Titan Engines as a engine tear down technician. When I started working, the guy who was training me treated me as badly as possible by yelling at me constantly. It seemed as though he wanted me to quit. Besides the constant yelling, he would ask me to do things that were unnecessary like taking an oil pan to the back of the yard through freezing rain (this could have been done the following day when there was no freezing rain as the oil pan was not in the way). After taking the pan to the back of the yard, he decides I took the wrong one and I have to fetch the pan and take another on back there instead.
It got to the point where I talked to the superintendent about why the guy was treating me this way and the superintendent said "tomorrow we will all sit down and have a meeting to see why he's treating you like this." (That meeting never happened). Well as time went on, I realized the guy who's training me is drunk everyday. Not to mention, he's AT LEAST 30 minutes late every morning. I know this because I was 30 minutes early every day and dealt with the other employees asking me where's so and so. My reply was "I'm not sure".
Finally 6 months down the road, I got some kind of food poisoning and was VERY sick so I called work before I was scheduled to arrive and asked if I could take the day off and they said "Absolutely! Just come back when your feeling better." So the following day I was nowhere near 50% back on my feet and I called again with the same response. The third day I was feeling well enough to go to work and when I arrived, everything was normal or so I thought. At the end of the day, the Supervisor calls me into his office and says "I'm letting you go." My reply to him was "can you tell me why?" And his answer was "We need someone that's consistent" so respectfully I left.
But how exactly am I the one who's inconstant? The guy who trained me is drunk and late EVERY day! Oh wait, let me guess. Titan engines is behind on work because of this drunk guy and lets hire on some gullible teenager to help us catch up and then fire him before he can claim unemployment. Well how about the fact I'm not some little teenager who can run back to mommy and daddy? I'm now losing my home to foreclosure because of this company's carelessness.
