Angry What did they do to my car?

Does anyone have an idea what they did to my car so I can have an arguement with the dealer? 04 svtf - my moon roof would not close without pushing the button 3 times, took it to the dealer, they fixed it, said they had to reteach it, cool ,BUT, now I have all the symptoms I have heard you guys talk about here. boogy take off, chugging when you first take off Cold, and my gas mileage went way down! [from 32mpg to 28mpg]. I called them and asked if they flashed my computer and they said they did'nt. I left it at that until I talked to you guys. I plan on getting a tune but its going to be a little while[family comes first]. I've driven it to work in nearly the same manner for a year now and the difference is definently noticable.[easy to work, drive like I own it the rest of the time].

Never hurts to take it back in and hook it up to the computer...most of them are clueless about what flash version...they just hook it up and if the computer says there is an update, they update it.

i'm guessing they disconnected the battery and you are experiencing an "ECU relearning cycle"...drive it for a few days, or even a week and see if things don't straighten out.

I had issues with a reflash, and they said they have no way to roll back a flash as their computer only has the newest one available.
