Premature timing belt failure may result in serious engine damage. When replacing a broken timing belt, it is important to inspect and possibly replace the crankshaft position sensor; it is often damaged when the timing belt breaks.

    Today my car made a loud noise and I lost steering, brakes etc. Almost had an accident. AAA brought my car home and said something happened to my crankshaft, timing belt. Which came first the chicken or the egg? I don't know which it was. The dealer said this isn't covered under my warranty. If there have been other reports than there obviously is a problem. I shouldn't have to pay to have it fixed. Please advise.
