Well the damn belt tensioner gave out on my stealth yesterday. Luckily the car was idling when this happend. And as a result of this the car jumped timing!:mad: Well the mechanic picked the car up this afternoon. Thank goodness he is a good family friend.;)

I hope you got lucky, but even at idle the engine is spinning 700-1200 revolutions per minute. Hence if the belt jumped far enough, you still will have bent valves, etc. expensive damage.
