2008 Chevrolet Cobalt Q&A

2008 Chevrolet Cobalt Question: could the wrong manifold gasket cause a timing belt to break?

chevy mechanic told me the wrong gasket was on car from factory what other problems could this cause my engine? -
Answer 1
I cannot think how the intake gasket would have any relation to the timing belt. I also do not think it could have come from factory with the wrong gasket. Sometimes the manufactor has a change in parts they use due to design improvements. -

Answer 3
No..if he worked on it I'd ask to see old parts that were replaced. I would go else where for opinion. -
