Is this a repeat of your post in January and belt broken again ?

" Hello my timing belt snapped on tick over"1000rpm' just cut out no banging or anything : I was underneath at the time checking the exhaust ' if I just get the belt done and water pump and see what happens " well that's what iv been thinking? If the valves are bent " can't make my mind up ' is over £1.500 to £2000 for engine reconditioned ' yes the car is worth no were near that " but iv had it 16 years and looked after it " and had the belts done " but 5 years ago ' it's done 79 .ooo miles since 1993 ' what would you do " thank you "

No it's the same car not been able to sort it because I fell of a ladder and it's taking a long time to heal my broken bones but im now able to walk but still can't get under the car yet Im in my late 60ts and didn't bounce ' I just hate parting with the car as iv had it many years but family trying to get me to scrap it and get another .

Sorry to hear of your accident , you have been on here for a few years now . I know how you can get attached to a car and it's hard to give up . But you could be giving yourself a big headache taking on repairing it , especially with father time catching up .I think you should take the families advice and call it a day , hard to do though . O.k doing routine maintenance and small jobs now and then if needed . If it was my decision I would not repair it . Best wishes .
