Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
While driving the car, the timing belt broke. I understand that this engine is an " interference engine", meaning that if the belt breaks, the engine is ruined and a new engine should be installed.
My local Dodge dealer tells me that they can replace the belt and its related parts (tensioner, pulley, water pump, etc.) For $ 1,500 and the car be usable again.
Is this true?
