return... by the time I set or leave it and come back it starts back up again..It has
becomes not trusting... I don t know what it is going to do one day until the next..
Im not sure what it cost because I'm in South Africa, but can promise you one thing....... its a fraction of the prize to repair the belt and its pulleys rather to replace head gasket valve guides valves. timing belt is one of the most in portend parts on your vehicle, have it check before something goes terribly wrong.
A timing belt that is about to break will exhibit no warning symptoms. Change the timing belt at the manufacturer recommended intervals or risk severe engine damage when it breaks. Upon timing belt service it is a good idea to change the tensioner, idler pulleys and the water pump while it is apart.
Is that 3 million miles?! maybe not, you just pushed the zero too many times-the timing belt is something that should be replaced as an item that has a limited life span- usually between 75-90 thousand miles- haven't you replaced it yet?! you will not notice a change in the way the engine runs to warn you that it is time to replace it- you say that you have kept up on normal maintenance but the cam belt is just normal maintenance- replace it-
With that mileage on it, you most definitely need to replace the belt. It could have jumped one or two teeth out of time but still run, just not properly.
