Question about 2000 Volvo V40
In 4/2010 while driving on express my car cut off, got car towed to volvo dealer- they said timing belt was shredded on the outer edge due to prior timing belt job in 1/2010.
Got car reevaluated by original repair person, they said the water pump caused the timing belt to slip.
Is this likely?
Yes,the water pump should have been changed at the same time,BUT,and i keep saying this to all my customers,no garage will do any work that you, the client, dont ask for and if they reccomend it they are trying to rip you off.the original repairperson is not at fault in any way,as you cant see inside the pump to decide when its going to fail.....not what you wanted to hear ,but true.
best advice.is find a good mech and follow him/her around,that way it becomes personal.
