I really wish my hearing didn't suck so bad.
The engine did come out again, but it was to dig into a LOW compression cylinder, not a NO compression cylinder.
Not sure what the reasoning is yet. It's so irritating not being able to do this myself. I understand the car is still technically the posession of the dealership and he wants it to be RIGHT before it leaves but I've already chewed off my fingernails, and now my toenails are starting to look palatable.
He says he's sending me some photos. I'll post them as I receive them... unless I get the car first, and then I'll be posting MY photos.
