My 2008 PT Cruiser has apparently busted the timing belt. Any suggestions on garages that can handle that kind of work?

Thanks.

The PT 2.4 liter is apparently a non-interference engine, from what I can find, but it you were driving when it broke it could still have valve damage. Most anyplace can replace a timing belt, just call places near you and compare prices. Make sure they also change the water pump while they are in there. But if you do have bent valves, that is more serious. A decent garage should be able to tell up front by doing a compression test.

The best advice would be to get rid of the PT Cruiser. They are notorious for constant expensive repairs. You don't want to know what all is involved in replacing the heater core when it starts leaking here before long. You will most likely exceed the value of the car in repair costs very soon, possibly on this timing belt issue.
