odds are the 'Hauler had hundreds of hours of idling time and probably had conventional oil used and that engine has the equivalent of 200K+ on it with all the idling hours plus however it was used in service
I don't remember the exact numbers, but I believe it was something like 12K hours run time when I got the car and half of those were spent idling.
I have an idea how
I'll have you know that NONE of my burn-outs were done as part of a donut or series of donuts. Every single one of them was done in a straight line or not at all!
then there's the driving over curbs, medians...
Beatniks and hipsters can be pretty erratic when they're surprised or spooked and scatter in all directions They are just as likely to take off running through a field as they are through a parking lot. Either way though, it is up to the pursuit vehicle to follow...whether that be through mud or over a series of parking blocks, no matter.
One thing must always be remembered
: Beatniks and hipsters are dangerous creatures and must be locked up, both for their own good and
most any PD fleet / motor pool manager I've talked to commented on how rough the LEOs are on the vehicles
I had a cop needling me recently after he came upon me sitting in a church parking lot at midnight one night where I was waiting for Mrs. Nuke to bring me some tools so I could get back running. He told me he wasn't surprised my Charger was broke down because every one of the Pursuit Chargers they had in training broke down on them.
That was quite possibly the LEAST helpful comment anyone has ever made to me about the vehicle I was driving.
I have the A5......I still have the original window sticker and it says I have a 3:08 gear in the back....So i go to Dodge.com for recall information? I'll check it out. Thanks Nuke for the info....
On the surface, I would say yours is possibly one of the ones under recall for the timing chain. Check it out here to be sure though: https://www.mopar.com/en-us/my-vehic...ls/search.html
