    Unhappy Possible slipped timing belt

    Hey guys,

    What would the bill be if the timing belt slipped?

    Was doing 70 on the motorway at the time. Yikes!

    new timeing kit .....and i would say you might not have any bent valves you will have broken cam followers ...just remove the cam cover and inspect easy to see broken followers and easy to see if the valve are all level and not bent ....

    really dependant on the damage inflicted - anything from new belt and tensioner= being lucky - £150- £250
    to new engine worse case scenario = beyond economical repairs

    Its still revs and it started, was afraid to run it too long in case i did damage(probably more damage). it runs fine just lazy when starting.

    Got it towed to my mechanics and hopefully he`ll be able to have a look tomo
