Xc90 2.9T6 replaced timing belt and tensioner. 2 weeks following the that work the engine stop running. Mechanic says valves are bent due to skipped time. However, the belt did not break. Can we tell definitively what caused the timing to skip? I am simply trying to determine if the mechanic who changed the timing belt and tensioner caused the timing to jump which resulted in bent valves and the need for a new engine. What must be done to prove this. I want to pursue a civil suit and have my facts in order.
