1997 Subaru Outback 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 79,900 miles
Last week I had my car in the shop for an oil leak. The mechanic suggested that I have the timing belt replaced at the same time and I agreed. The car ran ok for about a week, but today, while I was driving, the windshield wipers became very slow. Then I noticed that the brake light and the charging light were on on the dash. Then I lost my power steering. I have left the car at the repair shop with a note. This is too coincidental not to have beeb caused by something they did, but I am anticipating an argument. What could have caused this? Could improper installation of the timing belt cause this type of problem?
