Question about 2002 Volkswagen Passat
Today my mechanic said that my timing belt broke and most likely 75% chance that the valves are bent. If the valves are bent then it would cost apprx. $100 for each to be fixed. My car has 12 valves? If the valves are bent then it may be feasible to pay for a entire new engine which a used one would cost about $4000. Any advice? Does my mechanics' analysis sound right?
I would go with the mechanics advice and allow them to fix it. 1200 to 1500 beats spending 4000 on another motor if that one can be saved
