It's funny... I can ALWAYS tell who has had their timing belt break. They'll call and ask how much to replace their timing belt, and when we can do it. And not complain about price at all. I remember some DOHC turbo stealths that had the same thing happen. Those were NOT cheap to fix by any stretch of the imagination. And yet, someone would think it was too expensive to replace the timing belt, and then more or less total their car w/ engine repair.
Thinking of starting a "scammed by" thread? If you sent the paypal as a "gift" don't even bother... no one feels sorry for you.
