Shop Owner & Technician:

John Andryszewski

John started his career working on diesels, while attending UTI in Phoenix, Arizona. After extensive industry training, he received a degree in Automotive, Diesel and Industrial Technology from UTI and then went on to Ford Factory Training. There, he received an Advanced Diesel Engine Performance Diagnosis Certificate from Ford Motor Company.

"German cars being a passion of mine, I applied to a few manufacturer-specific training programs. Being picked up by Audi, I spent the next few months of my life, working on diesels in the AM, learning VAG "repair logic" in the PM. 480 hours of training later, and I'm off to work under a VAG MASTER GUILD Technician as his apprentice learning the ins and outs of the trade. I spent nine months under him and three years later, I'm two classes behind that guy." -- John

Yikes! Tell us you're doing much much better than the average dealer!!!

I too would hope that you are doing better quality work than your average dealership. That line of rhetoric won't cut it here.

Tell us, what sort of tools do you have for timing belt changes?

If by chance he doesn't have the right ones...he could simply look to your signature for the proper answer...:confused::D

Wow, you guys are a tough crowd. I have many thousands invested in VAG Tools, but nobody told me, you guys needed an inventory of my tool box. If asking people if they want some back yard, weekend grease monkey working on their vehicle or the factory trained guy. They will usually pick the factory trained guy. If you guys ever have any questions or want to cruise by and check out the shop, feel free.

Welcome to the club 4ringking! I don't know why people are being so pre-judgemental.

I'm sure you will do well. Just keep in mind that there is a very low impression of factory repair quality here! ;)

Thanks for the support...
Note: I did edit the post for all the dealership haters.......

TDICADDGUY January 21st, 2010 01:26

Didn't mean to hate or be unwelcoming, we just like to know that you know how to do work on these cars properly...particularly when it comes to belt changes.

Based on the dealership stories that float around here, I'm sure there are more than a few ASE Certified and "Registered Expert" technicians who have tooefed and minioned more than their fair share of TDI engines because they cut corners and didn't do the required work.

The more qualified TDI mechanics the better, but garnering that reputation here doesn't happen overnight. Please feel free to look around the forums and get involved in some threads. Help some folks out and maybe share some stories about work you have done or the latest car you've had come in that had been previously "tooefed" by its owner or the previous mechanic.

Be careful what you say, some of the best "trusted mechanics" we have around here are (or started out as) the typical "weekend grease monkey" who only have basic hand tools, a $250 VCDS and about $300 worth of Metalnerd tools for timing belts and other TDI-type jobs. Very few of them have "factory training" either, but I would trust my car to them...unlike many "factory trained" techs at the VW dealerships.

Again, welcome to Fred's. I hope to see you become an active and involved member of this site.

How you perform timing belt changes is considered a proxy for how you'll address all other problems.

The mark-and-pray method, used when the mechanic or shop doesn't have the right tools to lock the cam -- and injection pump in some models -- might work for some people. But if that's what you do, then we don't think you're a serious mechanic interested in doing the job right. When individual owners can rent or even buy the correct tools to do the job themselves, then someone who plans to work on other people's cars really ought to invest in them.

So asking the question is like the initial part of the job interview. If we get the right answer(s), then you win a try-out.

I only use the highest quality OEM parts and back my work for 12 months or 12K miles.
hmmm????? If I am going to back my work, do you think I would use un-professional methods? I take pride in my work, in my business, and when I work on your vehicle.

TDICADDGUY January 24th, 2010 14:44

Please enlighten us. All of your posts here on the forums are shameless self-promotion. We've seen those types here before.

TornadoRed January 24th, 2010 17:05

Ringking, aka John Andryszewski, has registered as a vendor, it is up to the customers to report back.

He seems to have decent credentials:
Universal Technical Institute
Emphasis: Auto, Diesel, Industrial Technology
Certifications: Audi Factory Registered Expert Technician, ASE Certified in Engine Repair, Suspension and Steering, Brakes, Electrical and Electronic Systems, Heating and Air Conditioning, EPA Certified Section Section 609, MOOG Certified
Experience: Audi Register Expert Technician, ASE Certified, 10 yrs. exp.

If his work is not good, then he's wasted a lot of time in the wrong business.

I am just a squirrel trying to get a nut. I am going to be as active on this site as my time lets me. If you ever have any questions or are in a jam, shoot me a call and I will be glad to help you out. (732) 691-2335

98NYFINESTVETTE January 26th, 2010 17:43

I would like to thank you for the very quick response to my question. I thank you for your time and advise.

Good luck on the forum, I for one can say that you can be trusted and not place you in the same category as a dealer.

Thanks again,
