Torch gets torched on his Tiguan

The ‘Humble Mechanic’ in cooperation with his friends at DAP (Deutsch Auto Parts) helped diagnose and repair Torchinsky’s Tiguan with a timing chain failure, which is exceptionally common on those early EA888 family TSI engines.

I’ve written enough overly long articles lately. Just enjoy the video and the light ribbing Charles and co. give Jason.


Charles Shackleford, “The Humble Mechanic,” is a former VW dealer shop foreman who started doing podcast videos covering common VW issues, and now him teaching classes on car tech, making videos and being an all around communicator of the technical side of car diagnostic, repairs and common issues are his full time gig since leaving dealer life.

Good guy and very knowledgeable.
