Vehicle would stall out while driving at highway speeds. Sometimes vehicle could be restarted after stalling out. Took vehicle to dealership, but mechanic could not resolve problem. Dealer stated to consumer stalling could be related to the fuel pump, however if they could not find the problem, the consumer would be charged. Vehicle intermittently will not start, it will crank but it will not start, after letting it sit for an hour or two it will start.

Our mechanic stated he has replace 9 to 10 timing belts, idler pully, water pumps on the same type of cars. It seams like the idler pully freezes, causing the water pump to freeze, which then causes the timing chain to break. Total cost to repair was $503 plus a large towing bill. I would think a $85 pulley should be made better as to not cause so much damage when it breaks.
