My car in garage - had timing belt, water pump replaced, all fine when I drive the car over to be fixed. Now mechanic calls and says car will not start - says carbon build up in valves keeping it from starting so I need to pay to have all valves cleaned to get the car to start - can this really be problem?

Welcome to Just Answer!!2.8 motor ?
Ok this is possible we have seen this issue before but since you brought the vehicle in there running it is possible that they have the timing wrong when doing the timing belt and may of bend some valves which is not good because that is a big repair I would call them and ask them if the engine compression is low they more then likely caused the damaged to the valves by doing the job wrong . I hope this helps . Please don't forget to provide me positive feedback thank you
They said they tested and it had low compression. So they determined it was dislodged carbon between seat and valve. They say they have done nothing wrong of course
It is possible but honestly after the timing job was done they more then likely caused the damage what a coincidence this happened after the big shop you are going to know to go and have them show you the evidence of what they found . I hope this helps . Please provide me positive feedback for my time and knowledge thank you
Has this helped if it has please take the time to provide me positive feedback thanks
