Maybe the coil pack through up a code so they changed it and the hose was visibly perished so changed it and thought all was good until start up and further fault was found as in timing chain causing the issue ?
My two cents is ask who did the shampoo and why? You owned it two years now and bought it from them. Listen carefully to their answer and don't take anything but a straight forward answer and a solution to the problem. Suggest maybe it was shampooed by them by accident thinking it was some other car? Pay attention to their reaction you want to give them an honourable way to say they screwed up without saying they were just plain negligent. Get them to pay all of the costs of the repair or as much as possible anyway.Yeah, already called an independent shop and they also thought it was weird since they should have noticed something like this in the service they did last week.. Im going up there tomorrow and will have a talk with them, hopefully its just the ignition coil and the hose. Any tips on what i should tell them?
I just came back from them they keep saying the same stuff, the intake hose was cracked and the ignition coil was water damaged from a motorwash that has to be over 2 years ago most likely from when i bought the car.The OP stated in post #10 that the dealer replaced the timing chain before selling the car to him. The engine/car has only 15K KM on it since then. Timing chains do not wear out in 15K KM in a properly functioning engine. If they are now saying the timing chain needs to be replaced again, then they MUST find out why it has worn out so fast and fix that too since it is apparent that the new chain has had a substantially shortened life. ALL of the cost of this work (just the timing chain work not the coil packs and such) should be at the expense of the dealer since the prior timing chain work was not done competently in the recent past.
There does seem to be a bit of consistency on the issues this dealer seems to have missed on your recent service visit. If the intake tube was 99% deteriorated and therefore still functioning, you would have to face the replacement of that part eventually. But it does look very poor on the quality of the recent service work. Same with the timing chain issue. If, in fact, the engine does need a new chain then they missed something significant when they did the replacement 15K KM ago.
As for the bad coil pack. They do go bad. And they typically don't give much warning. But shame on them trying to blame it on an engine wash. That just makes them look stupid. Should have just said it needs to replaced because it was bad.
In conclusion - you may want to find another service facility to maintain your car. These guys have proven their incompetency.
