Customer Question
My machanic has never worked...
My machanic has never worked on saturns before. We purchased the timing belt/water pump kit and replaced them because a small peice had broken off and stopped the timing chain from spinning. He ut the car back together and nothing. So he wnt back and opened up the car again and checked the valves to find that a few had gotten bent when the chain stopped spinning. Now we have replaced all the valves and the car will not turn on. Any suggestions?
