LIFTERS & TIMING BELT HELP!!!!!

Chrysler Other

In September I had my timing belt and tune up done. Well on 2/3/06 I had my lifters replaced. I picked the car up it sounded like a deasel and the mechanic said it could take a couple hours for the lifters to pump up. By Sunday my car wouldn't start, the cam bolt was broken, and he was claiming that who ever did the timing belt over torqued the bolt causing it to break. It just happened to be when he did the lifters. So he claims. Funny thing. Only 12 of the 24 lifters were full of oil. The intake lifters weren't working. Also, my car didn't burn oil before he changed the lifters. Now it's buring oil.I don't know if he adjusted the valves when he replaced the lifters, but my car sounds horrible : cry:
