Scotty, I'm losing trust in that Goodyear place my Acura's at. They said the car is dead and won't run. They used the alternator the car came with, and never said a thing about jump starting it. They're saying the crankshaft or the timing belt, and they didn't say anything at all about what they tried. The College I go to has an Automotive program and I took an Automotive Service Fundamentals class there. Should I have the car towed to my old professor and have him look at it?

yes, do that, makes sense. Those chain stores often have crap "mechanics"

Haha I love how you put "mechanics" in quote on quotes! LOL Those guys at Goodyear are hilariously not even close to mechanics!
