Although I have alot to be Thankful 4,my Talon timing belt snapped,ur's?

Hello to all. Although I am blessed, I had a pretty bad Thanksgiving. Was just wondering how everybody else's was? Good or bad? Tell us your stories!!!!
The good:
As we were leaving my husband's sister's house. My youngest son who is 4 just happened to quickly grab the whole container full of chocolate chip cookies & try to sneak between his father & I. As we caught him he said " I just want to take the cookies home to eat them" It was the funniest moment!!!

The bad:
On the way home our beloved 91 Talon started to "tick" we kind of were expecting something major to go as it has been wonderful to us. Just a few miles from home as I approached a light in NUETRAL ( thankfully ) we heard the timing belt snap. Coasted to gas station where my husband, 2 toddler sons, and myself waited until 3am for a tow truck in the freezing cold. It was a long night. Now we got alot of work to do. How about yours?

Umm that sucks. I got to see my brother whom I have not seen in a year +, his wife and 4 kids. That was awesome. My father had a medical procedure that went very well for which I am thrilled. My family is happy and healthy, nothing else matters much to me.

Never had a car with a timing belt, sorry to hear about yours.

I had dinner at my daughter's apartment, my Mom did most of the cooking.

I bought the turkey, so I brought home a lot of leftovers.

I used to have a car with a timing chain..was a total pain in the ass taking off that cover. THIRTEEN 10mm screws. That poor 10mm wrench was all sorts of screwed up by the time I got done.

My grandmother (on my mom's side) died earlier tonight..but she's been going downhill for years and confined to a nursing home.

Sorry on the loss of your grandmother. Pass this along to anybody in your family who may need some words of hope to help in the stormy times ahead. My condolences to your family.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

While I'm down..I'm not overly sad about it..she was in bad shape for quite a while. Past week(atleast, forgot how long exactly) she was almost completely comatose. Unresponsive, feeding tube, using stomach muscles to breathe, gasping for air despite being on oxygen. Fever and insanely high heartrate. Atleast she's no longer stuck in that blasted nursing home, it feels worse than a hospital in that place.

Yeah I can understand that. Sometimes it is a blessing to see them pass as you know they are at peace & in the heavens. Despite her being sick, still sorry for the loss.

Ouch. lu sorry for your loss and phoenix that sux.

I had a 91 talon as well, turbo one at that. Loved that car. It decided to puke the balance shaft belt which shot inbetween the teeth on the timing belt throwing it off by 3 teeth and taking out the whole motor. Hopefully since it let go at idle your's isn't toast. Those interferance motors suck when the belt goes. Do a compression check at minimum to make sure a valve didn't get dinged. Personally I'd remove the head as well. Better to know now whats gone than to find out later.

Yeah I am upset today. Going to check everything out more throughly,
see if we are going to be fixing her or letting her go. For a car I did not even want I am pretty **** upset. That car grew on me & I love it. We WILL Be getting ourselves a NEW TSI. If it was not an ESI there would not be a question as to fixing it but since it is not a TSI fixing is in question. Maybe not anytime soon but in the future, I will be a talon owner. Any good advice you can tell me on the interferance motor?

Good for boosting. Being a 91 you dont have to worry about crank walk. But when timing belts break while running the valves tend to meet face to face with pistons.
