Oh. I get it . . . if it belongs to the dealership and you steal it, it's not considered stealing?

way to be a dick bag , I am sure you never forget or misplace anything. As a dealer tech that would be a shop tool but in principle right thing would be to return it.

When someone race's aginst the clock to get paid as a service tech, sometimes things get left behind. If the tech uses this on your car or not, the right thing to do would be to return it to the last place the car was serviced. And yes....most of the oil change techs at dealers have their own tools....that they paid for out of their own pockets.

I have seen techs charge asshole customers full bore and then some just for shit that gets pulled in the service lane either at write up or billing. I have also seen customers get cut a huge deal because they are just plain great customers.

Like I said, the right thing to do would have been to return it, but after two months and you posting this here....more or less tring to show everyone how you are gonna teach a lube tech, who makes about $10 bucks an hour a lesson by keeping his $15 tool..........Karma........good luck buddy.....

Actually, if it were me I would call the service rep and tell him the date my car was there, and if they can tell me what tool it was that was left in my car, I'll give it back. Otherwise they don't care about it, so I'll hang it on my workbench. Hey, it's honest, I gave them a chance to claim it, they just need to fess up and admit to it. Problem is with most of these kids doing this work these days is there is no consequence to the shit they screw up, like loosing tools. This would be my way of letting them get it back and make the culprit responsible for thier screw up.

I use my own tools, I change oil and tires, shop tools are usually worn out cheap garbage.

Why isn't anyone wondering why a tire valve installation tool was being used for an oil change?

He probably dropped it there when he was sorting thru the console for change.

I left a ratchet in a vehicle once and the customer was nice enough to bring it back. I swear if I had meet him I would have gave him a hug. lol.
This tool isn't big money, it's just the right thing to do.

I'm willing to bet it was just in his pocket, and when the car was parked or pulled around it slid right out onto the floor.

Not to mention, you don't even know what it is, or how to use it, so take it back to its rightful owner.

Taking something that isn't yours, whether is was left in your car or not, is theft. Way to be a dickbag. I fucking hate thieves. Says a lot about your character.

Wasnt my car, got in my brothers car the other day and it was on the floor, I asked what it was and he said he didnt know, it was there after he got his oil changed and didnt look important so he didnt worry about it. For the price they charge for shit I didnt feel bad keeping it, that and it had been 2 months and the part is 15 fucking dollars. Now learning that techs use their own tools I feel bad and will return it, lick my balls and go cry yourself to sleep

I just bought one for 20 bucks ( Quadratech ) , and for that money its worth taking it back and finding the rightful owner !! And when you do you tell him he owes you one , and when something goes wrong on your Jeep thats not covered , you go to him and he will remember you and help you out !! Its worth it in the long run !! If no one claims it then its yours , but you dont have to worry about karma !!

As someone who's actually worked as a tech....you can take it back and it will be most appreciated.

BUT - the fact that it was left in the vehicle says something about the professionalism of the person performing the service. I've worked with plenty of people that have left tools under the hood/in a car - in the industry they're known as hacks. That's not to say there all bad, but good tech's check to make sure ALL the tools they used are on their cart and not in the car.

I'm sure I'll catch shit for the statement above, but it's true. Good tech's, oil change bitches or not, make sure they don't leave tools in cars.
