Quick I need some help!!! A friend of mind broke down on the interstate yesterday and had it towed to a shop, the show said they didn't know what it was but they thought it was the timing belt. They now want $1300 for the repair and I don't think it should cost that much. HELP what 4-cyl does the contour have, and is it an interference engine? If, so then never mind, I will tell him to get a new car. If not, then he needs to take it some place else.
