Customer Question

I just was on this site. And lost it. I have a audi 1997. I just had in the garage for an inspection. I had a check engine light. The mechanic said i need a fuel pump and with that ,they had to do the timing belt. Paid over $900.00. And after i drove it away it drove like tank. Horrible. Now it has been less that 1 to2 week. And now it won't stay running. And the catalytic converter gets red hot. I changed the plugs, coil pack. And still. I haven't a car to drive. My mother is dear , but i'm running her mileage up on the car she just bought. Help.

Hello, I'm Brandon - Audi tech.

It looks to me the shop did the timing belt wrong and throwing off the timing. Therefore it is running rough like a tank.

Where is the car now?
