Yes you are right, I had a pro mechanic of 3.5 years look at it that didn't know his ass from a hole in the ground. You are not the only mechanic in the world.

You had a pro mechanic look at it and he did not even check the timing belt? ROFL

Don't know of a pro mechanic that would seriously show up without a scanner. Unsubscribing. I am not needed here.

May I ask what the hell a pro mechanic is? I'm a diesel mechanic and it is my profession.... But I don't know half the shit some old timers know?

Check and see if you got spark fuel pressure air and compression

What did you want me to say when my questions were not answered? "Thank you Sir may I have another"?

P.S. I bet the reason they never came back is either it was the TB or they pulled a code and solved it. The embarrassment was too much for them to return.
