I am going to need a make, model and year. Also what country, state, province you live in... it makes a big difference. Timing belts are supposed to be replaced on a strict schedule and hence would never be covered under any recall or warranty anyways but i can check.

SOURCE: suspect 99 malibu broken timing belt

If its a 99 4 cyl 2.4 ltr it should have a timing chain. Check your PCV (positive Crankcase Ventilation) Valve. it should rattle when you shake it. sometimes you can clean it with carb cleaner. but for what they cost, just go buy a new one. When they plug up it doesn't let your crankcase breathe and you will start getting oil in your throttle body or carb. Gas engines don't like to run on oil for the combustion process.4 cyl engines dont have a pcv valve just the v6 motor...

SOURCE: timing belt toyota hilux 2000 broken

More than likely you have some bent valves which can lead to alot of money to fix. If you can do it yourself try to find a wrecked one or one with a bad bottom end and just get there cylinder heads and put on your motor with a new timing belt.

SOURCE: My 2000 Chevy Blazer battery light is on. This

Could be anything from corrosion on cables, loose cables, lose or faulty wiring of wires behind alternator
defective voltage regulator. Visually inspect all the items noted. Then use a volt meter and measure the charging voltage of the alternator. It must be between 13,5 to 14.5 volts with and without accessories on at idle and 2000rpm. Anything below 13.5 weak battery or defective alternator ,lose wiring , corrosion. Anything above the 14.5 volts is a defective regulator.

My 17-year old son asserts that his '99 Sunbird (112K miles) broke down several days ago causing him to pull off the road - no additional details - after which he restarted the car and drove home. Next...

If the timing belt (chain ) broke or jumped the car would not have restarted after your son shut the engine off. (The motor would have stopped on it's own.) Timing belts are an issue with most modern cars and if the motor is what is referred to as an interference engine there will be valve damage. The other possibility is that some components from the butterfly valves in intake manifold were sucked into the cylinder head causing damage to the cylinders , pistons and valves. No matter what the cause its going to cost a lot to repair.

1998 Ford Contour seat belts

ask to have a record for recalls on your car recalls are repairs
than dealer have to get done to cars free of charge

the way the recalls are set by goverment agencies is by complaints from customers to the higway safety administration
or also to the customer afair i thing so
when they receive too many complaints with same problems then they will force the dealer to fix many cars free of charge,
i hope and this help
but make sure to ask the dealer for recalls of your car. and ask for a print out.
