At 96000 miles I had the timing belt replaced and ever since then I have had a loss of power, especially on grades. I am unable to get any acceleration, if I try to pass another car I can depress the gas pedal all the way to the floor with no response. I have had the car back to the dealer no less than 7 times, they swear they cant find anything wrong. The car is currently at the shop again and they THINK it may be the tensioners. It has been about 20000 miles since they changed the timing belt, if they fix the tensioners should they replace the belt again also, I dont want to have a belt that is damaged for not be tensioned properly. Any other suggestions in case its not the tensioners.
have the same problem?
