Re: 1991 honda prelude 2.0

Wait... you paid $300 for a $20 cap to be installed? A cap that's literally held in by a few screws...

It just turned off? You didn't hear a noise or metal grinding and clashing? I find it hard to believe a timing belt went out, at 50k alone, and didn't make a noise.

Mechanic seems to have only one thing straight. Timing belt snapped almost always means bent valves. The belt usually snaps due to extreme old age, sporty driving, or the infamous money shift.
