I recently had the following work done or replaced on my 2005 Saab 9-2 X -
Timing belt kit and water pump replaced
Front Camshaft seal Kit
Front Camshaft seal
Everything was fine for a couple of weeks. A few days ago my car started shuddering on the highway and the check engine light came on. I was out of town at the time and took my car to a different service garage. They found that “Cylinder #3 was miss firing and had very low compression, only 20 psi” They suggested I may need to find a used motor to have installed…
I arranged to have the car transported home and dropped of at the shop that performed the original work.
Is it possible that the current problem could have been caused by the previous work being done incorrectly?
Or should this possibility of this problem been noticed when the previous work had been done?
Thanks for the help.
