Fuel Economy: fantastic

People drop dead cars off here all the time. And since we are the local AAA approved facility, we get all those dropped off too. Most are losers, ill maintained (or NON maintained) crap pile cars that the owners I guess NEED some sort of towing contract, because they have a 50-50 shot of not making it to where they need to go.

We've gotten cars towed in here from breakdowns during cross country trips that I would not have trusted to drive across the street. Then some that just die out of the blue from no fault of the owner, like the 2013 Escape I have here that decided its transmission was no longer necessary. Automatic transmissions: always a way to insure the towing industry is needed, LOL.

I am curious as what happened here as I am in Louisville and could be of service. I spoke with Bruce last week. He is doing some work right now but it is limited. I just picked up a wagon from his place diagnosing a cam failure.

Just to add. Since it was running when you shut it off, my guess is the shop you went to had no clue on what they were doing and got the timing wrong. Some people don't quite understand that you don't try to start a TDI to see if you got the timing right.
