silver94 is on a distinguished road
timing or what?

hello all
now that ive been lookin around i have a big question
it might have already discussed and i might have not seen it
so please foregive me if it has
i have a 94 si with the 2.3 non vtec with the 4 sp auto
i have had the car for three years now and i refuse to give it up (im hooked)
now heres my dilemma:i got her in feb and really havent driven her alot she doesnt see snow at all so i only drive in the spring/summer/some fall til it says snow then back in the garage. so i went out on a sunday morning and took off backed out of the drive went maybe 50 feet and pop and we died rite there so we pushed it back to my drive and i took my work truck and did my running got home from work monday and pulled my timing belt out it snapped so now im on the phone callin around and getting some figures
my brother said my cousins kid worked at this local garage so i had him tow it there i was quoted a price of 350 to redo the timing and replace the water pump of wich i was ok with so i get a call 2 days later its all fixed so i goes and picks it up the price jumped from the 350 quote to 600 and the freakin idiot never replaced the water pump he said my cam seals were leaking and they took presidence over the water pump so after arguing back and fourth he finally tells me to pay just for parts 78$ so now like i said its only driven on nice days but i do drive it . well it seemed ok but i did notice it seems to have a hesitation now (after 2 years) it has gone from a slight hesitation to the hesitation still there and now it pops like a backfire? i have a friend who says it might be off a tooth on timing and he says he can put it back with no prob my question is does anyone else have any other ideas to try first or should we just go for that repair? and when we tear that all down relace the water pump and the tensioners? like i have been told i should have taken it back to the guy that did it but i dont trust him and hes outta business now
oh and the mechanic that did my car said that i didnt bend any valves any help or input is greatly appreciated

Re: timing or what?

well thats good that you didnt warp any valves 9 times out of 10 thats what happens with a snapped timing belt. the tensioner and water pump should always be replaced when the timing belt is done. it does sound like the timing is one tooth off. you could take a timing light to it and see just how much it is.
