Chris Hill's car trouble
 
I heard that Chris had a problem with his Jetta and needed a lift to fix it Labour day morning in Montreal. Hope he got going - anyone know?

Something about his engine being seized at a gas station somewhere in Montreal. I have no idea. I just heard about it briefly before I left on Monday morning.

I got a PM from him about a part that arrived at his shop - so I guess he is home.

Basically, the engine would turn over to a certain point, then felt as if something were jammed in the flywheel. That's how it was described to me. He was planning to drop the transmission to assess the situation when I left.

Ah, gotcha. Thanks for the update.

what meganuke said....
and EMS and company were headed back to Ottowa to pick up a trailor and wagon to tow his car back to Boston for him last night. havn't heard any word yet. I dropped MrsChill off at 11pm at their home, and heard he was on the road. I will check in to see if he made it home ok.

I wish I'd heard about this Monday morning, I wandered around the city for a bit and didn't leave until sometime after noon.

Hope all is well.

He's back.. Me and JP (EMS) just got back from Boston about 10 minutes ago! We had no issues towing the car at all, but now I need some sleeeeep.

You guys are amazing! Thanks for helping Chris out with his car woes. http://smiliesftw.com/x/highfive.gif

It's no problem...Road trips tend to give lots of good "US" time.

Besides - Chris has helped out so many TDI'ers out of a jam- I felt it wasn't right for him to be stranded in Mtl.

Chris is one of the heroes of the TDI community !!!

I'm sure that if he ever is in need of some assistance, there will be a very long line of volunteers offering to help... I know I'll be there!!!

Glad you guys had the means to get him home !!!!

All the best,

Yuri.
