problem #2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,000 miles
On the engine I had the pulley on the timing belt come apart and just last month I had the head gasket start to leak from the back. Timing belt 28,000 head gasket 37,500. I have had to replace all 4 tires that where on the car. All by 29,000 miles--some earlier and then later. The brakes were replaces at the same time as the timing belt pulley. I knew they needed replacement and had an appointment to get them replaced when the timeing belt went out. It is a 1996 but I only have 37,500 miles.

Brake pads wear excessively and destroys the rotors. When it rains the brakes are completely inoperable. The pedal goes to the floor and rotors "scream", metal against metal.
