I know this has been discussed before but I forget the details. At the end of final assembly what would happen to a vehicle that did not pass the final process for something other than light repairs or adjustments, lets say for an engine knock. Where would it be sent and how would the problem be corrected?

That's most likely a question for JohnZ.  I don't know how often he checks this board, but he should be able to give some insight.

If an engine problem was noted during the roll-test, the car would go to Heavy Repair, on a hoist, and the engine would be pulled, stripped of dress components, and sent back to the engine plant for credit; no internal engine repairs were permitted in the assembly plants. A fresh engine would be run down the engine dress line, VIN-stamped to match the car, delivered to Heavy Repair, and would be installed in the car. The car would then be re-inspected, re-roll-tested, and shipped. A good Heavy Repairman could do a complete engine change in about three hours.

Nearly a thousand cars a day went through the plant, and there wasn't time, space, or manpower to deal with time-consuming engine teardowns or repairs, and the engine plants wouldn't allow it; they were responsible for engine warranty, and didn't want anyone but their own people inside the engine, at their own plant.

Thanks John, I figured they didnt just drive em off a cliff with crash test dummies inside  Grin I copied the thread and put it in my research file. I like that feature of the new site.
