I have Kia Spectra 2004, Malaysia - Last 3 and half weeks ago i sent my car to the the one of the car dealer to repair it. The problem starts when i drove my car at 60KM per hour and suddenly the car died and the car was slipped for about 20 meter ahead without engine running.
After sent to the workshop, the timing belt failed and after few days the told me that 2 small valves was broke, without show it to me that the cylinder head was affected. At first the mechanic just told me that he has to bring the cylinder head to the other workshop to check the cylinder head whether its bend or not. After few days he just mentioned that the cylinder head is broke and need to be repaired. But i didn't satisfied because when i asked how do you check the cylinder head failure, he just said he has an agreement with the other workshop just to reveal the result of the testing.
This statement was unbelieveable because as aclient we need to know how and where the cylinder head being tested.
My question is does it really affected the cylinder head when timing belt failed? If yes what is the significance problem? Does it look like these - images?
