Well, they pulled the head today, though for some reason, the shop owner
just wasn't around. Made an appointment for tomorrow morning. I am so
sick of this.
Assuming that they don't commit to any forward motion, I went by the
local VW dealer to get an estimate of the work to help me value my legal
claim. They said that it would run $3500 for the job. A couple of
questions, the "service consultant" indicated that they just sort of
smooth out the top of mildly damaged pistions. Is that kosher?
Second question: he also began talking about the damage that bent
valves can cause. Said essentially that due to the silicon ( he wasn't
exactly sure) alloy the guides are made of, if a valve bends, the head
is destroyed and essentially unrebuildable. Said you can try, but the
head will leak at the guides forever more. Anyone know anything about
that? He was a little light on specifics and then disappeared to answer
I appreciate all the support. Sort of a bleak time when all you really
want is an Andy Griffith world....
