Keep me in the loop. For those who haven't figured this out, it appears that the first shop might have knocked the crankshaft bolt loose by forgetting to remove the breaker bar from the crankshaft bolt and then they hit the starter. I have done the same myself, ONE TIME, but immediately knew I had to replace and retighten the crank sprocket bolt.

In this case, the first guy probably did the dirty deed and didn't catch it. The second company was the Stealership and if the car caught fire in their shop, they'd try to blame someone else. Both companies had their hand into the timing belt. So, that will play out poorly.

Only thing that will help is if someone wants to be honest and confess to the deed. I'm not betting that happens.
