When I looked at the car Tues. night I noticed what looked like a good
timing belt on it and all the plugs were laying in the trunk - along with
the plastic engine covers. I couldn't figure out why the plugs would all be
out, but now I bet the garage that determined the problem did a compression
check. Bummer. I'll have to re-check the compression when I get the car.
Maybe I'll get lucky.
Another interesting tidbit of info... the repair estimate was for $3500 to

> it may not even need valves, chuck a belt on it and check for
compression, we had a car at work, actually the 100 i have now, that got hit
on the passenger side cam sprocket and it broke, while running, and the
dealer just automatically pulled the heads, and then discovered the valves
were fine, it was moving while that happened too.
