  4. Timing off after timing belt change???

    Problem Reports
    2003 GTS. Had the timing belt replaced at 130,000 miles (I've owned the car since 75,000). Since the service was complete she sounds rough at idle, definitely not as smooth as before. However I don't notice any issues or unusual sounds while driving. Is it most likely that the shop got the...

  10. 2001 gt oil leak

    Problem Reports
    It's a manual transmission, I just changed the valve cover gaskets but it's leaking worse than before. Somebody told me it could be the camshaft seal that is causing this leak because from underneath the leak comes from the timing belt part, is that possible? It's only leaking from the front...
