You sure about that broken timing chain? Is the engine opened and you can see it?
Also, you should write a thread in the general forum, not here.
Give as many details as you can about the incidents surrounding this diagnosis...miles on car, etc.
Upcoming comedy shows: March 3 at Broadway Comedy Club, NYC, 8 p.m. March 5, Tierney's Tavern, Montclair, NJ, 7:30 p.m. See Facebook for other shows and PM me if you can make one...love to see you there!
