i've had zero bad F136 engines to date, one ZF trans bad to date only because the trans cooler busted internally and moved coolant to trans and trans to coolant in strawberry milkshake form. i, too, wonder how that claim went in...

I too would like an update on the status of the R an R. We heard all about the removal. I tried following the setbacks.

Kudos to all who tried to help with great advice and the patience of Job.

Jason you have redeemed yourself in my eyes.

I watched this last videos :
.
So much for a matching numbered Engine / transmission, paired ECU and TCM,

I am going to wager the sands of time have made this car a repo nightmare.

Ferrari Silicon Valley
2750 El Camino Real, Redwood City, CA

Was only 10 miles away with light years of Experience

I think time I should look away from train wreck.:censored:

I was wondering about that also...silence from Pierre for this long could very well be indicative of a separation between Mas and man. Maybe something else went amiss with the dealer and that could have been the proverbial final straw .. or not and he’s just waiting with no progress to report . Pierre ...?! Pierre ... ? Pierre , are you reading this ? Bueller ..? Bueller ...? Bueller...? ;) :rolleyes:

Ok, now I’m itching to know what happened with all of this drama .. I’ll drive by the dealership one of these days ( it’s only about 20-25 minutes from my house ) next time I’m heading in that general direction, and see if I can track down the service manager or one of the two Maserati mechanics they had, and ask what the final outcome was ..unless the car is still up on the rack waiting for yet another motor or transmission :rolleyes::oops: .. Assuming of course, they’re willing to divulge, I have a suspicion they’re going to be very cagey and claim they can’t talk about other customers’ cars .. you know, it’s that “mechanic-client “ privilege classified info 😉😜

@Pierre A. After I have read through all the comments and your YouTube videos, I finally figured out what is or was the real issue you either were or are having with your car if it hasn't gotten fixed yet. The problem is you have bought an Italian knock-off brand Maserati GranTuriso. Your first video you stated that you have researched very well before buying it. Well. Had you bought a genuine Maserati GranTurismo, you wouldn't have had all these issues. Didn't you know that the knock-off Maserati GranTuriso car has Chinese made DongRun engine in it? That's why your car stops running. 😆. JK

You mean the Polex watch which was part of the promotional offer with the car sale , might also be a knock-off ?;)
Actually these cars can be called GranSorisso and it would be legitimate / appropriate... Unfortunately for Pierre that seemed to be short-lived, unless there's still hope hell get the car back all fixed and essentially brand new ..:unsure:

What a mess! I am willing to bet there is a law suit going on with him and the dealer/Maserati cause they screwed up his car or transmission. Hence, he can't comment any further. I don't even consider our GT as a car, much less an investment like he said (haha)...it is just an Italian fun toy only...there is zero value after purchase...so just keep forever and have fun while it last!

So ..I just stopped by that dealer and talked to the service manager. According to him everything was fixed. But he recalls that when the car was picked up , Pierre mentioned he might consider selling it .. Why in the world would you get rid of a car with a brand new engine...and transmission ?!

Some folks come to the forum to whine and then when all is better....NOTHING. Sometimes we forget all of the these machines, you pick the brand, are extremely complicated in the 21st century. There is a reason all the boomers stopped progressing after say 1972 when emissions came into the picture. Back then you could have a 50IQ but be good with a wrench and know how to tune a carbureator....now it takes a software engineer and a level of precision 100x beyond those old cars. Sh!! happens and hopefully, even with lots of challenges, the dealership made right. Notice they don't want even their trained mechanics to crack the Ferrari motor open to repair. It takes a true specialist to do this now.
I have tried very hard to keep my fingers on the machinery by doing my services etc. ECU tuning to learn about software etc...but crack a motor or tranny...no thank you...I would never attempt it without full training first..."man's got to know his limitations" CE

Looks like Pierre's "Gran Turmiso" is all better..


I asked him in YT comments to update/close out this 7 page thread.
