Question about Cars & Trucks
Are you talking about a manual gearbox or auto?
The only situation a snapped belt would have an effect on an auto-box, would be if it were driving a manual (non electric) radiator cooling fan, snapped, and were then unable to cool the radiator and autobox oil radiator.
I doubt very much this is your setup though, so no. Your belts wouldn't have an effect on your gearbox.
Your drive belts would typically drive any or all of the following:
2) Power steering pump
3) Water pump
4) A.C. compressor

The V70 naturally aspirated engine in 1998 is an interference engine, which means if your timing belt breaks, you will bend every intake valve in the engine, necessitating a valve job at the very least; around $5K. As soon as you buy the car, spend the $500 to replace the belt, the idler pulleys, the adjustment pulley, and the water pump. Change your thermostat at the same time.
Look at the motor mounts, they are likely broken, check your constant-velocity joints for play (you'll feel a 'wobble' on acceleration through a turn), and you can get aftermarket delrin bushings for the struts, as long as they're not leaking. Have your mechanic inspect and replace the headlamp sockets (they get burnt and cause rapid failure of headlight bulbs). Whenever you do brakes have the mechanic clean, inspect, and electrically test the ABS wheel sensors.
Other than that, a nice solid car.

Please go to the crossfire injection forum to get some straight answers to the 82 corvette CFI system and how to troubleshoot it properly. There's a lot of misinformation given here, so much so, I don't know where to begin.
One thing is, the 82 corvette CFI does NOT have a MassAir Flow sensor system, it uses MAP and O2 mostly. The CTS sends a signal to the ECM telling it what the temp of the motor is and in turn the ECM controls the amount of fuel being dumped. On the older (orignal) CTS sensors, they have one wire and takes its ground from the threads. If any coorosion takes place, usually the CTS will report a cold engine and request lots of fuel.
To repair this issue, install one of the newer style CTS sensors that have two wires, one for signal and the other is ground.
Fuel pressure and vacuum leaks on any CFI motor play key roles. Set the FP to 14-15psi measured inbetween the TBs. The regulator is located on the rear TB and must be slightly moded to make it adjustable and can be done in a few minutes.

It is a right hand thread and you usually need an impact gun. Take the fan out of the way, to give you more room, I have found that helps.

As far as the price goes, the head gasket set at AutoZone is almost $300 which means you would obviously pay more than that at your mechnic shop. I will check on the central pivot axis and get back with you. Did he tell you a code number that is popping the Check Engine light off?

timimg belts usually don't make noise, they break and the motor stops!! The noise could be coming from a bad water pump, powersteering pump, air compresser, alternater, leaky exhaust, leaky vacume lines. Check them out. Or, I don't know the condition of the engin. Has it been neglected and are the bearing going? More history would be helpful.
