Depending on what motor is in it the motor or at least the head may be done. Some of them if I remember correctly are "interference" motors. Basically meaning if the timing belt goes and it "jumps" time it can take out the valves and pistons (mainly the valves) I would have it checked out before you pay someone to replace the timing belt only to find out your head is trashed.

^ Correct. You need to have it looked at. I have bent a few valves and cracked some sleeves because of skipping timing.

It's not really a matter of getting screwed. Any mechanic will know whether the engine is toast (Bent valves and such) and requires a top end rebuild by simply popping out the sparkplugs and taking a look inside.

DO NOT just have a timing belt replacment done on this car. You have what is called an interference engine. If you were moving at speed on the highway and the timing belt gave out there was nothing to stop the valves from potentially destrying them selves. Before you do ANYTHING else you need to have the plugs removed and the cyclinders scoped for damage. I would also recommend a compression test (hand turning the crank to see if it killed any of the cylinder rings. A leak down test would tell you right away if any of the valves are bent.

Unfortunatly there will still be a chance that the top end (head assembly) could still have damage even after you have completed these checks. If everything else passes that I mentioned above you can proceed witht eh timing belt KIT replacment.

Good luck and let me know if you need any more info.

If the belt is broken or has skipped teeth, a leak down and compression test will not work.

I am worried about being screwed into having extra work done to it that it may not need to get going again.

^^^Well, times are tough but a mechanic would have to be insane to want to risk losing his license by declaring that you'll need a rebuild if it really doesn't.

If he did, all you'd have to say is: OK, don't start the work yet. Get me a quote and I'll be by tomorrow/later today to look down the scope with you so I can see how badly mashed the valves/rings are.

That being said, be fully prepared to scrap the car. Interference engines are sensitive. My brother had his go late last fall when a 20 cent nut holding the harmonic balancer fell off, cause the balancer to go loose, causing the timing belt to go slack a bit and slip - CRASH BOOM when the whole top end.

Call a mechanic, say you're looking to buy the car and want to know if the timing belt is "interference". If you need one to call, call Ralph at Autotech in Tysons.

What license are you talking about? You do not need a license to be a mechanic.

Not to mention the hilarious idea that mechanics are somehow kept from lying by the aforementioned license
