1998 Plymouth Voyager 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles
The timing belt on my Voyager gave out. I've been told that replacing it is not a big deal. However, what is a problem is that my engine was probably damaged when broke. I believe the term used was that it is a non compliant part and that the engine was likely damaged and that if I put a new timing belt on it may not be able to handle the pressure and blow the engine.
Does this sound reasonable? Given the van has seen a lot of miles is this the kind of repair job that will most likely just be an expensive postponement of the inevitable?
I've also been told that replacing the engine outright is another option that might cost me upwards of 1500.00.
I'm interested in your opinion.
have the same problem?
