SOURCE: broken timing chain corsa
Not good. I would expect the garage to foot this expence as Im sure your initial bill was far from a cheep one? If a customer of mine had suffered a similar issue, I would certainly work very closely with them to rectify the problem. There is of course a slim chance a catastrophic component failure has genuinely occured, which may be completely unrelated. However it is most unlikely this time, as when your timing chain failed the valve to piston collision/impact would have caused serious potential damage to the crankshaft and big end bearings. This symptom is not overly common in most engines where timing chain/belt failure occurs. However, all engines are different and may experience different levels of damage. A replacement engine does now seem the cheepest way forward in your situation. Perhaps the garage should source one and you might pay for the fitting only? Good luck

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?

You are definitely due for a timing belt if you havent done so.
Shop prices vary a lot, so I hope you have someone you trust....non the less, your 98 rodeo has a timing belt...and it is good money spent, to also replace your waterpump and tensioner too.
All of the parts can be purchased for about $125, and often the entire job can be taken care of in a shop for about $200 labor, but I would shop around a bit...
