Labor Warranty Terms & Conditions

The labor warranty is to help offset the labor costs, should the part purchased fail within the warranty time frame. It is not intended to cover the full cost of labor.

The original invoice must accompany any claim for warranty. Payment of invoice constitutes acceptance of these warranty terms

Regarding engines, accessories such as alternators, starters, water pump, intake and exhaust manifolds, fuel injectors, carburetor, flywheel, brackets, oil pressure switches, thermostats, smog emission devices, and timing belts are complimentary and do not necessarily come with the engine. These parts are not covered under the Smith Auto & Truck Parts limited warranty, and we do not guarantee interchangeability of these items. At the time of installation, and in order to maintain coverage under the warranty, it is required that the installer do the following:

Engines are guaranteed against engine knock, excessive smoke and oil consumption (>2 quarts per thousand miles), inadequate oil pressure, turned bearing and cracks in heads, block or piston. Warranty is contingent upon oil and filter change at installation and every 3,000 miles thereafter. Consumer must provide proof of service records to validate claim. Overheating and/or improper installation will void all warranties. NOTE: Excluded from this warranty are the fuel components, water pump, gaskets, all electrical parts, hoses, lines, intake and exhaust manifolds, turbo(s), fuel injector pumps, all other fuel injection parts and all other external parts. Oil/fluid leaks, loose timing belts/chains and fuel components, tune-ups, water pumps, distributers and exhaust manifolds are not covered by this warranty. Calibration and adjustment of excluded parts is also excluded from this warranty.

Transmissions are guaranteed to be in good working order. Warranty covers slippage, shifting failures, and/or bearing noise. Shearing or breaking teeth in a standard transmission is not warranted under any circumstance. On automatic transmissions with overdrive warranty is void if transmission is not adjusted by an A.S.E. certified mechanic prior to driving. Improper installation will void all warranties. Customer needs to provide proof of service to validate claim. It is highly recommended that all external seals be replaced. Smith Auto & Truck Parts does not cover any external leaks on transmissions. All CVT transmissions need to be installed per manufacturer guidelines. ALL TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTERS HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM TRANSMISSION AND NEED TO BE REPLACED ON INSTALLATION!

Rear Axle Assemblies are guaranteed not to be noisy or have excessive axle wear. All fluids have been drained and will need to be replaced prior to operating vehicle. Brake systems and/ seals are not covered by this warranty and are recommended to be inspected and/or changed during installation.

Self-Installed Parts will be covered as long as a 6 or 12 month parts only  warranty is purchased. The same terms and conditions of the Extended Warranty apply. Purchaser is responsible for ensuring part is installed correct and according to manufacturer’s guidelines. Parts that are incorrectly installed are not covered by this or any warranty.
