Re: Help my Alfa is in a bad way!!
They are correct in saying that the cylinders work together. Of course they do, they are on the same crank. But the cams do the timing of the valve sequencing and they do not open at the same time, what they have done is royally screwed up the job and are liable for the full cost of repair and the cost of any other bills you suffer due to this, such as car hire, bus/taxi fares and recovery. Do not let them fob you off, they didn't do it right, and you can always contact trading standards if you need more advice. As you noted the difference in the sound of the car, it sounds like they've fitted the belt one tooth out.
Name the garage, we should have alist of these sort of places.
BTW they are looking at a good 2 grand bill at least.
