Question about 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe
I just had a timing belt blow on me which ended up costing $2500 in valve work to be done. Now, less than two weeks later, I sit in the mechanics shop while he replaces the catalytic converter, claiming that it couldn't possibly have anything to do with the recent engine work. Am I getting ripped off here?
No the Cat may have failed due to the timing belt failure (high exhaust tempertures), but not due to the work they did to replace it, I have 30 years of being a technician to back me up on this one.
