How do the dealers feel about diesel chips and exhausts?


If a chip is removed for every service so as not to void warranty in anyway because we know dealers will point there finger at whatever they can.
Is it possible for the dealership to know the car has had a chip in it?

There are some chips that leave a code in the ecu, but I will not be naming them :(

My dad has a 2008 hilux 3.0td and he took it to Toyota for its 200,000km service looking through wat they did I noticed a couple of things like
changed brake fluid and check clutch fluid(pretty sure brake and clutch fluid come out of the same reservoir)
the major thing I notice they said they check the tappets. I then looked under the bonnet they hadn't pulled the cover off. just incase I was wrong I pulled the plastic cover off fine dust all over the engine and no finger prints or evidence that the tappet cover had been taken off. my dad took it back and all they said (the way they check the valve clearance is by listening to the tappet noises) ummm really don't know how u can tell the difference if its is one thou out of spec

The best service you can do is do it your self I have found out after 3 toyota service centers
1 Chatswood NSW installed a cruse control unit that rattles and is coming off

2 Hornsby NSW sent in for a rattle at 40,000 told me it was normal had it over night cold start
Now at 116,000 blows so much smoke I fill bad driving it it started at 80,000km and toyota don't want to know you ,
Went in for a clutch at 30,000 at hornsby under warranty picked up looked under the gear box and the earth wire hanging down
Was there for another service and the bash trays were on back to front one was over lapping

3 five dock on parra road
Went in after a trip to cape York with a leaking LHR wheel bearing which I had fixed on the way back in qld
Replaced the seal and brake shoes
Picked up after 2 days get home go to wash the car and get to washing the wheels with only 5 wheel nuts on they had strip the wheel nut and left it in the door pocket
Thanks for telling me
And they fixed the hand brake so well it does not work
2week latter I had oil in the brakes
Back to five dock toyota
Another day with out my ute
Now I have a bent axle
They quote me $1500 new axle , bearing and brakes
I went and picked the ute up went home
Called a wrecker $300 fro QLD complete with brake shoes

That is why I hate toyota Service
Do it your self

I would love to take this to Today tonight I need more people in the same boat
