So where do I begin. I had the timing belt changed a couple weeks ago. I was 50mi on the new timing belt and was driving along when I heard a loud clunk and all of my dash lights came on. Turns out one of the bolts on the tensioner was torqued down a little to much. This caused the bolt to shear and then all heck broke loose on my engine. Fortunately for me the mechanic is going to pay for all damages and fix my baby. It was a honest mistake and he has been really great about fixing it. I'm not sure of the extent of the damages but we are hoping the pistons are gonna be ok.
So unfortunately my car is down and out and once I get it back ill have to put it away for the winter. : (

It really sucks, I miss driving it.
