Car will no longer start, just had serviced.
Hey guys. I have a R56 07 Cooper S, and I just had a lot of engine worked done at a shop who work on Mini's specifically. I had the carbon in the valves cleaned, and they changed the timing chain due to it basically breaking and rattle during starts. After 2 days, I pulled up to get the mail and the car without warning would stutter and then shut off. I tried to fire it back up but it would just keep cranking as if it was going to start but nothing. Unfortunately the shop is closed due to the weekend and I had to push the car into a nearby stall. I was just seeking some advice. Should I just wait for a response and hope they will help me out. I sadly live about a 30 min drive away from the shop and towing will suck. I just gave them almost $2900 to do all the work, and this happens after 2 days. Also they changed some ignition coil and the oil line to the turbo. Basically a lot of things were done to the car. Thanks for reading. I'm a bit new with cars as far as repairs but defiantly curious.
I am not saying they did a horrible job, just the situation stinks and hope they contact me back on Monday when they are open. Thanks again for any help.
