My timing belt keeps coming off, I have replaced the tentioner two time's and bought a new belt, after i get the belt on and start the car, the belt kicks off again. I tried bypassing the air conditioner with a smaller belt, Which was advised for me to do from a garage, but the tentioner just kicked it off. I can't get it to a garage because it won't stay running, and it cost's like 300.00 to have a tow truck move it for me! Do you have any idea why this might be happening? I need my car back A.

I have a 2001 Ford ZX2-broken timing belt-interference or non? I need to know this because I don't know whether or not I should replace the belt or purchase a new vehicle. The mechanic states it is interference, dealer doesn't know, and I see a lot of talk when I search on google that the car is non-interference. Anyone know the truth? Please help!

I just had my timing belt replaced on 06 mitsubishi galant. Do i need to reset the computer. If so, how? Idle in drive seems a little low when stopped at a light. And is it normal for the car to sound a little different after replacing new belt?
