Question Asked: Had timing belt changed, now oil light coming on
February 01, 2010, 07:52 PM
I had my timing belt and water pump replaced recently. The next day I drove the car and the oil light came on. The mechanic is trying to say that it's because of the oil screen needing to be cleaned and wants to charge me another $200 for that job. The Camshaft and Crankshaft seals were also changed and I've heard that if those seals aren't put in correctly, the oil pressure will become a problem... is it true? I don't think that the work he did had anything to do with the oil screen and the car was fine before. I was only doing preventative maintenance and now here's something else. Could this mechanic be trying to squeeze water out of a turnip... or more cash out of me?
