Default Looking for GOOD TDI shop in Austin, TX - anyone know of one?

Hi,

I need to get a second opinion on my car, as I am told the engine has lost compression on all cylinders (ran fine right before power loss).

Need to get a second opinion and need advice on a good shop in the Austin, TX area.

Randy - I had to get something going on my car quick, so Austin VeeDub is looking at it. I may be in touch, depending on what I hear from them. I also sent you an email through your site about another vehicle I have (A 7.3 F350).
