Had my outback in the shop for a\c problems and oil leak cam seal. I asked them to check the timing belt. He said it looked pretty new. It was supposed to be changed about a year ago. Well i got it back and the check engine light was flashing. before I could get it somewhere, the a\c belt broke and the a\c stopped working. about a 100 yds later it died and would not start. towed it home. what's up?

The A/C belt probably ripped up the wires to the crankshaft position sensor. It is the sensor directly behind thecrank pulley and timing cover on top of the engine.

Thanks . I'll check That. I see the tension bracket is broken. Bolt is missing and the threaded end of bracket is split. A\C clutch pulley turns but can't turn clutch.

yeah you can't turn the clutch if it's not on and engaged. did you see if the belt broke those wires?

Anyway, I'd check with this shop to see what they messed up, if anything....
