Re: fecking vag skoda no one can fix

Thanks for the update. Glad its still going, otherwise, more head scratching might cause injury, or hair loss...etc.

Another week or so, and time to return to the dealer and ask for some refund?

Fingers crossed.

Re: fecking vag skoda no one can fix

That's a real B'stard trick for the main dealer to pull - and that seems to be a common theme with modern garages - they no longer employ mechanics, they employ 'technicians' who seem to know nothing more than where to plug in the computer.
If 'computer says no' then they seem screwed.
If this garage has simply wiped over an old part with a rag then charged for a new part, they desrve their backsides kicking.

Re: fecking vag skoda no one can fix

no what they did was say they tried a new coil and it made no difference so didnt fit it, and instead reckoned they did a compresion test and it was low on cylinder number 2 and she needed a new engine.
this was after they fitted and charged for a new egr even though they was told egr fault had been there for 2 years and wasnt the cause of the problem.

the problem was car cut out when hot. the new coil pack from scrappy has fixed it its still running fine.

Re: fecking vag skoda no one can fix

Good to hear it is still running fine. Time to demand a full refund from them. no need to pay for any work that did not fix the problem.
