thank you for answering the way I was thinking of what happened. Now I need to figure out the damage and how bad. I just hope the pulley is not off center.
what about the cats and specs for the pulley and crank?
The mechanic he took it to said engine was running lean and burnt the cats up. The mechanic also did not like that there are two C clamps and heat tape at/on flex point in exhaust system, this is due to corrosion and bolts broke. Lastly, complained about fuel lines being toby close toto exhaust, and we did not relocate them
I agree exhaust needs work, but i dont understand why the cats would be bad since the seansors are before the damaged part in exhaust and there is no leak.
Thank you for your patients
