Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Other Saturn Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 139000 miles
We recently had the saturn in for service, because the low coolant light kept coming on, but we did not have any signs of external leakage. The repair shop found a bad hose at the back of the engine, but to get there they had to take a lot of equipment off the top of the engine. They also found that the timing belt was bad so that was changed. A couple of days after receiving the car back, we noticed oil spots in our driveway and a heavy burning oil smell. Taking it back to the repair shop, they said that it was the oil pan gasket leaking. I did not trust this diagnosis, because upon climbing under the car I noticed oil above the oil pan gasket. Now our serpentine belt is squeaking and it appears that oil is coming from the timing belt shroud. My question is: Are there any oil seals under the shroud, and if not where else could this oil leak be originating?
have the same problem?
